V30 Compact Tractor Utility Fork Grapple Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I USE THE V30 COMPACT TRACTOR ATTACHMENTS ON A SKID STEER?

Yes, as long as your loader has a recommended loader capacity of less than 1500 lbs, anything more can damage the attachment and void the warranty.

WHY DON’T THE V30 COMPACT TRACTOR GRAPPLES COME STANDARD WITH COUPLERS?

Compact tractors do not come with the same auxiliary hydraulic hookup as skid steers. There is no guarantee flat-faced couplers will work correctly. For that reason Virnig asks for info on the loader the grapple will be used on to ensure proper hydraulic function. All compact tractor grapples are equipped with pipe fittings from the factory unless otherwise specified.

WHAT FORK WIDTH SHOULD I PURCHASE?

The overall attachment width should be wider than the tires or tracks of your compact tractor. The attachment should also have a recommended loader capacity rating that matches or is lower than the loader lift capacity.

To prevent potential overloading issues, compare the loader’s lifting capacity and tipping weight to the weight of the attachment plus the estimated weight of a load. Different materials will change the estimated weight of a load.

Contact your local dealer or Virnig at 800-648-2408 for more information regarding proper width.

WHAT MAKES A VIRNIG V30 UTILITY FORK GRAPPLE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER UTILITY FORK GRAPPLES?

Virnig Utility Fork Grapples are fabricated with high grade steel, are generally heavier, have thicker and stronger tines, and include a quality USA Made cylinder. The tines are removable, which makes them easy to replace in the future.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?

Virnig uses NitroSteel® cylinder rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.

Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.

A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice. Learn more about the benefits of the NitroSteel® process.

ARE HOSES INCLUDED WITH THIS GRAPPLE?

The hoses, couplers*, cylinders, and fittings are included with all Virnig skid steer grapples.

*Couplers not included with Compact Tractor grapples.

All Virnig mini skid steer attachments are manufactured with a Toro®/mini universal mount, Bobcat® mount, or ASV® mount.

What is the Setup Time for a Virnig Attachment?

Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.

To minimize setup time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed in every order for attachments with hydraulic components. This ensures proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.
