Higher productivity with both roundwood and brushwood
In a study from Skogforsk, the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden, an A-grapple enabled roundwood to be loaded 4% faster and unloaded 7% faster than a conventional grapple. In addition to an A-grapple considerably increasing roundwood productivity, it makes for an excellent brushwood grapple. Unlike the airy bird’s nest-like bundles a regular brushwood grapple makes, the A-grapple’s angled arms compress the brushwood into tight bundles. This contributes to both heavier loads on the forwarder/timber truck and tidier brushwood piles.
