Grapples


BMF provides log and branch grapples of different sizes from 0.15 to 0.37m2 to complement BMF forestry cranes.

BMF log grapples are unique, because these are made of Hardox steel that is provided by Swedish manufacturer SSAB and guarantees high durability, lighter weight and longer life-span.

The teeth of new-generation BMF branch grapples are manufactured using Hardox® 500 Tuf. This new tough steel is the newest version of Hardox materials from SSAB that combines the advantages of Hardox® 450 and Hardox® 500. Branch grapples need to be extra resistant, because they are under high bend rigidity when in use. Therefore, BMF used reinforcement on the teeth of its branch grapples just like most other producers. However, the new Hardox® 500 Tuf has a unique combination of hardness and toughness that makes it elastic, which means that new BMF branch grapples do not need additional reinforcement. New Tuf steel enables BMF to produce grapples that have lower weight, higher payload, high impact toughness and longer life-span.

BMF accessory range includes a bucket accessory with Hardox® reinforced edges that is available in three sizes BU20, BU24, BU27 and can be attached to the following log grapples: C20, C24 and C27.

Log grapples: C15, C20, C24, C27, C37
Branch grapples: C20B, C24B, C27B, C37B
