Builtrite has announced several key changes to the four-tine Orange Peel Grapple line-up. These changes are being implemented to improve overall performance and durability. These changes include that the upper head and connecting link have been re-designed, allowing the hoses to be re-routed to come over the top of the material handler jib, allowing for a cleaner hose joint and less likelihood of hoses becoming torn off in scrap handling applications. Bolt-on cylinder covers are now standard on all models, 1/2 yard and larger. The covers and bolt-heads are recessed to prevent them from getting caught on materials. Bolt-on access plates on the sides of the tines to prevent materials from entering, yet allowing easy access for servicing when required. High torque, heavy duty rotation motors do not require a case drain line. Internal tooth, rotation bearing allows motor to be mounted inside the rotation head to ensure maximum protection. 1 yard and larger models use dual rotation motors. All grapples still come with AR 500, abrasion resistant steel on the tine tips, use hardened and oversized pins and bushings, the tines employ a boxed design for maximum strength and finally, all come with a magnet hook in the bottom center of the grapple.
