Scrap Grabs

Its robust construction and advanced hydraulic capabilities make it a top choice for industries requiring high-performance and durability.

Why a Grab for Handling Scrap?

Using a grab for handling scrap offers numerous advantages, especially in industrial and recycling settings.

Here are some key reasons why a grab is an essential tool for scrap management:

Grab for Handling Scrap


Grabs efficiently manage large scrap volumes, enhancing productivity and easing the handling of bulky or irregular items.


Handling scrap involves risks like sharp edges and toxic substances. Grabs help operators stay safe by keeping a distance, reducing injury risks.


Grabs streamline scrap handling, reducing time and labor costs. They also minimize material damage, preserving recycling value.


Hydraulic grabs offer enhanced control for precise movement and placement of scrap, key for efficient sorting in recycling operations.


Hydraulic orange peel grabbers handle diverse materials, making them ideal for various industries.

Environmentally Friendly

Grabs enhance scrap handling and sorting, aiding effective recycling & reducing landfill, which benefits the environment.

In summary, using a grab for handling scrap not only enhances operational efficiency and safety but also supports cost-effective and environmentally responsible waste management practices.

Applications of Scrap Grabber

Scrap Grabbers are essential tools in various industries, particularly those involved in handling and processing different forms of waste and raw materials.

Here’s a closer look at their diverse applications:

Recycling Facilities

Recycling Facilities

Scrap grabbers efficiently handle and sort various metals, which speeds up processing and reduces labor costs.

Scrap Yards

Scrap Yards

Scrap grabbers efficiently handle and sort various metals, which speeds up processing and reduces labor costs.

Construction and Demolition

Construction and Demolition

They are used to remove and sort debris efficiently, helping to clear sites faster and repurpose usable materials..

Waste Management and Landfills

Waste Management

In waste processing plants, scrap grabbers handle large volumes of waste, reducing the need for manual sorting & increasing operational safety.

Port Operations

Port Operations

Used for loading and unloading bulk materials such as scrap metal, contributing to faster turnaround times.

Forestry and Agriculture

Timber and Logging

Scrap grabbers also manage logs and other wooden materials, helping to transport and load timber efficiently.

Orange Peel Grabs

The Orange Peel Grab, also known as a Cactus Grab or Polyp Grab, is a specialized mechanical grabber used primarily in construction and industrial settings. It features multiple hinged jaws that resemble the segments of an orange peel or the arms of a cactus, which allow it to grip and handle bulk materials effectively.

Typically attached to heavy machinery like cranes or excavators, these grabs can operate either hydraulically or mechanically. They are essential for moving and securing uneven and irregularly shaped materials such as scrap metal, waste, rocks, or logs, enhancing efficiency and security in material handling tasks.

An Excavator Scrap Grapple is a specialized attachment for excavators used primarily in the handling and processing of scrap materials.

This tool is essential in industries like recycling, demolition, and construction.


Design and Structure: Robust design with heavy-duty tines that are hydraulically operated, allowing it to handle heavy, irregular materials efficiently.

Functionality: The primary function of a scrap grapple is to pick up, hold, and move various types of scrap materials.

Hydraulic Operation: Most excavator scrap grapples are hydraulic, providing the power and precision needed to control the tines when handling various scrap materials.

Attachment and Compatibility: The grapple connects to the excavator through a coupler, making it interchangeable based on the excavator’s size and hydraulic capacity.

Applications: These grapples are essential in recycling centers, demolition sites, scrap yards, and construction sites for sorting, loading, and unloading scrap and debris.

Durability and Maintenance: Scrap grapples are durable for heavy use but need regular maintenance, particularly for hydraulic parts and tine wear points, to ensure optimal performance.
