One-Cylinder Grapple Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A SINGLE JAW GRAPPLE?

Single Jaw Grapples provide a cost effective alternative to a two-cylinder dual jaw grapple with similar quality. Single jaw grapples utilize simplified hydraulic plumbing which cuts down on parts, cost, and time spent for repairs. A single jaw grapple may be preferred for clamping and picking up even material such as hay bales.

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.

WILL THE GRAPPLE’S HYDRAULIC PLUMBING FIT MY SKID STEER?

Virnig Manufacturing has done real world testing and research to determine the proper length and position of hydraulic hoses for a truly universal fit on any skid loader brand. We match our research with high quality hoses, properly sized couplers, and JIC (Joint Industry Council) flange fittings to prevent leaks.

WHAT GRAPPLE WIDTH SHOULD I PURCHASE?

Typically, the grapple bucket width should be larger than the width of the loader.

The material to be handled by the grapple also needs to be taken into account. For example, logs can be handled easier with a wider grapple whereas dense items like rocks may overload the machine when using a large grapple. 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.

If you are unsure about what width to purchase, contact a local Virnig dealer or call Virnig at 800-648-2408.
