Manual Log Grabs

Manual Log Grabs

Are you looking for manual log grabs for your excavator?

When it comes to moving timber and logging, manual log grabs are the perfect choice. Designed for fast movement, our manual log grabs are built light and strong. For long-term durability, they are both bronze bushed and fully greaseable.

As part of our heavy-duty and hard-wearing designs, we only use the finest steel and components. This allows our grabs and thumbs to adapt to all types of uses, providing more efficient material handling.

What Are Log Grabs?

Log grabs (also known as log grapples) are excavator attachments used to pick up and move around tree logs. With over 40 years experience in the Industry, Shaw X is a leading manufacturer of excavator grabs. We also provide rock grabs tailored specifically for moving hard rock.

Custom Excavator Thumb Attachments

Our custom-made excavator thumb attachments are ideal for general earthworks. The hydraulic thumbs can be mounted on a single base plate and are welded near the end of the dipper to circumvent any location issues.

The thumb should be used in conjunction with the bucket to assist with the pickup of difficult materials. The thumb attachment can also be folded up against the dipper when not required, allowing for the standard machine bucket to be used.

Manual Excavator Rock Grabs

Our heavy-duty manual rock grabs can be used for all works. The 5-fingered box type grab is made with 450-grade finger ends and greaseable bronze bushed centre pin for a longer life. The tight meshing finger design makes these grabs fast and controllable. The nimble design makes them user friendly while maintaining strength for a longer lasting grab. Manual rock grabs are also available in our X-series range for added strength.

Hydraulic Excavator Rock Grabs

Hydraulic rock grabs are versatile, able to be used for all works and very handy for demolition. Fabricated with a heavy-duty 5-finger box type, twin ram design with 450-grade lower fingers, the grab is fully greaseable and bronze bushed for longevity. Tight meshing fingers make these grabs very controllable when picking up the smallest materials, yet tough enough for the largest of jobs.
