ISRI OPENING NIGHTISRI DAY 2

“Wow”, the most common word heard in the Anvil booth at the ISRI trade show.  Pictures and video don’t do justice to the massive Diesel Hydraulic grapple which Anvil is displaying at the ISRI trade show in Orlando.  When you see this grapple in person you get a feel for the size and power this grapple demonstrates.  Anvil is having a great show with lots of foot traffic through their booth, some from customers, and some from people who are just curious about the largest grapple they have ever seen.  One gentlemen simply stared at the grapple for about fifteen minutes, he stated he “didn’t have a machine large enough to handle that grapple, but wanted to buy one just because it so cool.”  Several people stop by just to have there picture taken with the grapple.  Anvil is also displaying a 1 cubic yard 4 tine hydraulic grapple, a 1 cubic yard 5 tine hydraulic grapple and a multi-purpose two over three grapple.

Anvil Rebuilds 4 Tine Hydraulic Grapple with a Touch of Patriotism

Posted by Anvil Attachments on Fri, Feb 01, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

4 Tine Hydraulic Scrap GrappleWhen a retired US Marine, who now owns and runs a scrap yard in south Mississippi, made a special request for his four tine hydraulic grapple, Anvil obliged.  The former Marine requested that Anvil make his grapple a little “Patriotic”.  Anvil went beyond a little patriotic and gave the four tine orange peel hydraulic grapple the full Red, White and Blue treatment.  The hydraulic grapple, pictured above, was in the shop for a rebuild as it had been through tough usage, moving scrap metal, cars and more.   This job was typical of an Anvil complete rebuild, starting with full disassembly, sandblasting and testing of the hydraulic system.  The next step was to replace the worn and damaged parts. These parts consisted of upper and lower pins and bushings, tine pins and bushings and tine teeth. All of the grapple's hydraulic hoses and fittings were replaced.  A missing cylinder guard was replaced, and all gouges and cracks were welded.  When it was time for paint, Anvil painted the tines blue, cylinders and cylinder covers red and the head assembly white.  Anvil has painted custom colors in the past, as they currently have a LSU purple and gold clamshell bucket in the rental fleet and has painted Saints black and gold buckets and grapples as well.
