Barko’s Strong-Arm Grapples provide a productive solution for log handling and delimbing applications. The Strong-Arm Grapple lineup consists of three models. The 4250, 4850 and 5250 grapples have maximum openings of 42.0, 48.1 and 52.1 inches, respectively, with each rated for up to 50,000 pounds of lift capacity.
Engineered for seamless integration with Barko loaders, the grapples offer powerful rotation torque and clamping force. A compact rotator allows for hoses to be contained in a single bundle between the boom and grapple, providing better hose protection. Other features include 360-degree continuous rotation and a fully supported rotator drive pinion gear. The hydraulic motor is designed to maximize hydraulic flow, making each grapple exceptionally fast and productive. By minimizing flow restriction, horsepower efficiency is enhanced, allowing operators to accomplish more while maintaining excellent fuel economy. The robust motor design features internal components tested and sized specifically to tolerate tougher conditions. An internal relief cartridge is completely integrated with the motor to avoid damage and oil leaks.
