V40 Skeleton Rock Grapple | Virnig


V40 Skeleton Rock Grapple Attachment by Virnig

Two-cylinder independent grapple with 3” tine spacing designed to pick rocks and debris and leave dirt behind.

  • Raised ridge in center of tines (rock dam) and notch near tips secure rocks while digging.

  • Greasable 1 1/4” diameter cylinder pins and hinge pins.
  • Teflon® coated bushings provide lubrication at jaw hinge.
