MultiGrapple range extended

2009 Mar 04

The Atlas Copco MultiGrapple range is now extended by six models to serve carrier units with a service weight of 0.7 – 80 tons.

Thanks to their sturdy design Atlas Copco MultiGrapples are not only used for material sorting and loading tasks, but also for tearing down light brickwork, wooden structures, etc.

A series hydraulic 360° rotation drive unit ensures that the grapple is quickly positioned right on target. The high closing pressure and the large grapple volume warrant a high machine productivity.

All main components are made of quality steel. Hydraulic cylinders and components are protected against damage. The blades can be reversed and replaced with ease in order to guarantee a high MultiGrapple availability. The grapples have elongated slots e.g. to prevent branches from getting stuck.

On the 2007 Bauma fair Atlas Copco presented the first six units of the MultiGrapple range. With this extension of the range Atlas Copco wishes to conform to changes in market demands. Wolfgang Hohn, Product Line Manager for Silent Demolition Tools, “With the MG 100, MG 200, MG 300 and MG 400 models we are serving the mini and compact excavator market up to a service weight of eight tons. The MG 2100 closes the gap between the MG 1800 and the MG 2700 and is designed for carrier units of 25-35 tons. The new MG 5000 rounds off the high end of the MultiGrapple range. With this 5,300 kg unit we can manage even hard-bitten jobs.”
