Heavy duty muck grab/muck fork for telehandlers. Split sided hydraulic jaw action
This is the heavy duty muck grab range for telehandlers. Our design is for heavy tear-out forces which is why we follow the following three rules;
1. Use of generously engineered 12mm carbon steel profiles in the side construction for greater strength than standard design muck grabs.
2. The muck grabs have independent left side/right side operation. The jaw has a split sided bite action with separate right and left hydraulics. The double jaw splits the main action of grabbing so that the grab and tear out forces are spread and balanced when encountering heavy and uneven loads. Conventional heavy duty muck grabs of 1.8 meter width and wider, are prone to warp with age and use and so don't last as long because of it. Splitting the mechanism into two sides avoids this early end of life outcome by negating force differences between the left and right sides when the grab is under load and stress. This allows easier and more convenient use and a longer life of heavy duty work.
3. We use forged steel tines which are screwed into bushes. When there is breakage they can be changed quickly which is why we do not use the cheaper shortcut of welded tines.
2.3 meter split sided muck grab
The grabs have independent left side/right side operation. This is an important feature of the design. We have often noticed that heavy duty grabs of 2 meters width and above warp with age between left and right sides and don't last as long because of it. Splitting the mechanism into two sides avoids this outcome allowing a longer life of heavy duty work.
2.2 meter split sided muck grab
We use screw threaded tines. We prefer a screw-in approach because it allows replacement of a broken tine easier than having to weld a repair.
