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.
