Click here to view Anvil Attachments photo gallery from the show. Anvil's center piece at the show was its 6 Tine 7 Cubic Yard Diesel Hydraulic Grapple. They also displayed a 4 Tine 1 Cubic Yard Grapple, a 5 Tine 1 Cubic Yard Grapple, a Multi Purpose 2 over 3 grapple, and a Quick Connect Tine for the Diesel Hydraulic Grapple.
“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 Attachments, based in Slaughter, LA, is preparing their newest product, a six tine, 7 cubic yard Diesel Hydraulic Scrap grapple for shipment to Orlando Florida for the ISRI show.
The Diesel Hydraulic Grapple is a totally self-contained unit; it easily attaches to almost any crane and is operated via remote control. Jon Craft, President of Anvil Attachments, says, “It was a major decision for Anvil to bring this grapple to the show; the logistics were complex and cost with bringing a grapple this large is high.” This grapple weighs approximately 25,000 pounds. The engineer staff at Anvil designed a special pallet to transport the grapple; the pallet needed to be substantial enough to safely support the weight of this large grapple. The pallet weighs almost 8,000 pounds on its own. This brings to total weight of the pallet and the grapple to nearly 33,000 pounds. The Diesel Hydraulic grapple is nearly 16 feet across from tine to tine when open and close to 12 feet high. To prevent from having an oversize load while shipping, Anvil will have to remove two of the tine. Anvil will bring one of the tines on another special built pallet to display their quick connect tine system.
ISRI, the Institute for Scrap Recyclers Industries show is the largest show that Anvil participates. The response and interest in Anvil’s Diesel Hydraulic Scrap grapple has been tremendous so far. Jon states, “While the cost is high in bringing a unit this large across the country, we feel its best way to get the word out on this new product.”
This ISRI show is in Orlando, Florida and runs from April 9th – 13th. In addition to the Diesel Hydraulic Grapple, Anvil will also be displaying a four tine, 1 cubic yard scrap grapple, a five tine, 1 cubic yard scrap grapple and a newly re-designed 2 over 3 grapple.
After a year in design and development, Anvil Attachments has debuted its latest product offering, a completely self-contained, diesel powered hydraulic scrap grapple.
Anvil's diesel hydraulic scrap grapple is intended for material handling from ships and barges where hydraulics or electricity are not options. The diesel hydraulic orange peel scrap grapple is completely self-contained and self-powered, and easily attaches to any crane that can support the weight. It is suited for handling a wide range of products including scrap, stone blocks, rip-rap, and pig iron.
Jon Craft, President of Anvil Attachments, said, “Our goal was to get the design right the first time, that is why we spent over a year on design and development. Our engineers used our Finite-Element Analysis software to its full capabilities, this way we ensure that this grapple provides maximum strength and payload for the weight. Based off of our initial field test and customer feedback, we got it right. Our first unit sold was immediately thrown into the fire, moving foot long pieces of pig iron, one of the toughest types of materials to handle, and our diesel grapple has worked with barely a glitch.”
Anvil's diesel hydraulic orange peel scrap grapple can be configured with either a turbo charged air cooled diesel engine or water cooled diesel engine, depending on your environment. These engines range up to 150 horse power. The grapple has several engine access panels for easy access and maintenance.
The orange peel grapple tines are completely configurable to user and material handling preference with five tine options from small-blade, to lower enclosed, up to full enclosed. The tines are modular and crafted using high strength alloy steel for maximum wear resistance and every tine is powered with a 5-inch cylinder. These cylinders are custom designed and feature inertia welded rod eyes for maximum strength.
The grapple has an easy pin adapter that will connect to virtually any crane. Once connected to the crane, the grapple engine is started and opening and closing is all controlled through a simple remote control unit that works up to 500 feet away. Anvil is currently developing a smart phone app that will allow the monitoring of all vital engine statistics; this should be ready in the first quarter of 2013.
Anvil developed the diesel hydraulic scrap grapple to fill a need of bulk material handlers who needed a completely self-contained grapple where standard hydraulic or electro-hydraulic would not fit. Compared to the competition, Anvil's grapple experiences no overheating issues, burns 2/3 less fuel, has throttle control, a 50 gallon fuel tank with low level shutdown, all while handling pig iron.
In addition, Anvil currently has a diesel-powered clamshell bucket in production. This bucket will use many of the same concepts and parts as the grapple. They will share standard engines, hydraulics, etc. Anvil took what they learned from the grapple and applied these proven technologies to the bucket.
Anvil's diesel powered hydraulic scrap grapple, model DHSG, is now available for sale or rent.
