DK Series Grapples

Trusted and used by many of Europe’s largest sawmills, the Powerhand DK series log yard grapple is the highest capacity grapple in the Powerhand sawmill range. When large volumes of logs need to be carried, the DK grapple is the perfect tool for the job. One log or many…the intelligent leg design of the DK sawmill grapple allows it to have the dexterity to pinch a single log or bundle a huge mouthful.

Capacity ranges from 1.3m² to 2.1m².

The Perfect Load

Grab the perfect load every time and improve your efficiency with Powerhand’s log hugging leg design.

There is nothing worse than a jammed or crooked lifted load that leads to a messy pile. Powerhand has taken care of this. Our log grabs feature legs that have been specifically designed to allow loads to roll up the legs leaving no hollow pockets, where logs could slide from the middle of the load.

Built Big. Built Tough

For when large quantities need to be carried. The immense power of the DK series is maximised by the vertical orientation of the powerful hydraulic cylinders which allows for effortless piercing into a log pile. With the harsh nature of high capacity log carrying in a sawmill, the DK is more than able to withstand this environment. The design has evolved over the last 20 years to feature wear resistant and resilient leg structures combined with a tough headstock to give the ultimate high capacity log carrying grapple for large materials handlers. Please let us know your requirements and we will provide full details on the DK series to improve your sawmill log handling efficiencies.
