Railroad grapple RR820

Rototilt’s railroad grapple is engineered for those heavier jobs with a design that makes it the optimal choice for handling sleepers and rails, for example. Its smart design also makes the grapple extremely light and strong.

The grapple cylinders are equipped with load-holding valves for improved safety should the hydraulic system lose pressure. With Rototilt's other safety solutions, such as ICS SecureLock™ on both machine couplers and tiltrotators, you can work both safely and efficiently.

Another benefit of the design is that the grapple is detachable. Rototilt's matching quick couplers are compatible both with the railroad grapple and Rototilt’s other grapple modules. The railroad grapple can be mounted at the same time as you’re using Rototilt's other tools. This makes work much more flexible when you need to quickly switch between various tools for different types of jobs.
