MH SERIES - A handling grapple for loading balers on small excavators and cranes

Light enough to be attached onto a baler loader crane, more than tough enough to be fitted to a small excavator and handle scrap all day. Built tough to deal with the harsh environment of the vehicle recycling industry.

The MH series has been designed to fit into engine bays and to be a master at loading balers all day long. The legs are designed with long, sharp pointed tips that are perfect for piercing vehicle bodies and scrap.

The MH series is manufactured from high strength Swedish steel, keeping you working for longer, without the worry of a breakdown.

maximum efficiency

Quick, efficient release of the load

By working with our customers in recycling yards we understand that, when loading a baler all day, the key to maximum production is the ability to release the load at speed. That is why we have optimised cycle times of the MH series by having close centre leg pivots, allowing fast release of the load.

Like all Powerhand products the MH series is designed and built in house

We understand that the only way to guarantee the best quality is to control the whole process. That is why we complete 100% of design and manufacture in our factory in Scotland.

We are proud to never be satisfied and are constantly seeking to improve our concepts and to be at the forefront of manufacturing technology.

For over 30 years we have developed and refined our attachments in collaboration with many of the industries' leading users, with the aim of delivering the ultimate end product and customer experience.

world class Rotations

World leading attachments require world leading rotators... that is why we use Indexator rotators to partner our Powerhand attachments

We think of our attachments as the hand at the end of the machine boom and the rotator as the wrist. For unbeatable completion of the task and minimal downtime, both must be of the highest quality.

Powerhand has established a close working relationship with Indexator over the last 30 years, who lead the world in rotator design and manufacture the widest range of rotator products. They employ the most advanced design and manufacturing systems available, with industry leading testing systems used to rigorously test components after final assembly. This is all to ensure that the most durable rotators possible are created!

The MH series is fitted with Indexators GV series rotators as standard.

Final Link in the chain

Often an afterthought in 'end of arm' attachment assemblies, the rotator to boom connection link plays a very important role.

We are proud to offer the whole 'end of arm' package. From attachment, to rotator and link. Powerhand offers a range of industrial excavator and material handler links for a wide variety of machines and applications.

Links are available as standard, swing dampening, or for fix mount applications. We also offer the service of creating a link to your bespoke order. For any machine, for any application, we can manufacture a link to your specification.
