Our rock grapples are perfect for clearing land, removing brush, and cleaning up around the jobsite. Scrap grapples are designed for recycling centers and disaster cleanup, and can also be used for jobsite cleanup.

All rock and scrap grapple models are capable of handling broad, cumbersome loads. Their high grapple forces allow you to tackle even the most difficult materials. Each model features two grapples that operate independently, allowing you to pick up different-sized objects with each grapple. The grapple arms feature an integrated mechanical stop to reduce cylinder load when open.

On the rock grapples, tines spaced 76-mm (3 in.) apart are fully supported on each side to resist bending. The welded-in, serrated cutting edge easily penetrates difficult ground conditions.

Scrap grapples feature open sides with bolt-on side plates, allowing easy grappling of material that is wider than the bucket. A predrilled lip makes it easy to add an optional bolt-on replaceable cutting edge for longer wear life.

Heavy-duty construction enables our rock and scrap grapples to stand up to the most demanding applications. Durable 90-deg. quick-couplers and low-profile cylinder guards prevent the cylinder hoses from interfering with the grapple, while simplifying hose connections.

Like all John Deere attachments, rock and scrap grapples are optimized to work with John Deere G-Series Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders, and L-Series Compact Wheel Loaders. They're also compatible with most competitive models. See your local Deere dealer for details.
