The Bradco tree and shrub grapple by Paladin Attachments is the newest addition to Paladin’s grapple selection. It is designed to make some of the hardest tasks in landscaping quicker, cleaner and safer, according to the manufacturer.
Mounted on versatile compact tool carriers, the tree and shrub grapple can easily remove small trees, shrubs, ornamentals and small stumps — even in tight spaces. A hydraulically-powered alternative to shovels, axes, chains, or stump grinders, the tree and shrub grapple attachment reduces job time by effectively removing the whole plant, including the stump, tap and secondary root system, in one simple step. In addition to being easy to use, the tree and shrub grapple keeps clean up to a minimum by leaving dirt, gravel, mulch, etc. in place with minimal disruption to the removal site, which can often be cleaned up with just a broom.
Paladin recently put the tree and shrub grapple to the test on a residential condominium project. In just three hours the contractor was able to cleanly remove more than fifty small trees and shrubs with no damage to the surrounding vegetation, residential structures, irrigation systems or decorative garden materials. A job that would typically have required a two-man crew several days to complete with conventional tools was easily condensed into a few hours allowing the contractor to quickly finish this project and move on to the next, according to the manufacturer.
The tree and shrub grapple is constructed of half-inch (1.3 cm) AR 400 and AR 235 high-strength steel for maximum durability for years to come. The grapple attachment weighs 185 lbs. (84 kg) with a maximum working pressure (PSI) of 3,000 pounds to tackle the toughest applications.
There are many other uses for the tree and shrub grapple attachment, including breaking up and removing asphalt driveways and removing small stumps and other appropriately sized materials.
