The Orange Peel grab has a cast-iron reputation in handling difficult to handle bulk materials

Orange peel grabs (also referred to as Cactus grabs or Polyp grabs) are the best solution for difficult to handle materials, like scrap metal or wood chips. All our Orange Peel grabs are made with the bulk material you want to handle in mind.

As with all our grabs, we want to keep your operations costs as low as possible that is why our Orange Peel grabs are made with the highest possible quality steel, such as Dillidur 400. The Orange peel grab’s closing rope guide can also be equipped with low friction cable guides, which will increase the lifespan of the closing cable immensely.
