Can handle difficult dry bulk materials

Cactus grabs(orange peel grabs) are the best solution for difficult to handle materials. All our cactus 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 cactus grabs are made with the highest possible quality steel, such as Dillidur 400. The cactus grab’s closing rope guide can also be equipped with low friction cable guides, which will increase the lifespan of the closing cable immensely.

Characteristics of the cactus grab

The cactus grab is available for 25 to 63 ton safe working load cranes or unloaders. The volumes that our grabs can handle are up to 17 m3 for scraps and up to 50 m3 for wood chips. The grabs can be equipped with six or eight claws, depending on the bulk material. The grab is available with an open, half-open or closed claws. In short, a very robust design. With its relative independently movable claws, the cactus grab has excellent digging power.
