Powerhand GH SERIES

Powerhand log handling grapple, Heavy duty, low height

Trusted and used by many of the biggest sawmills in Europe, the GH grapple is the ideal log handling and loading grapple for excavators, materials handlers and loader cranes in sawmills and loading yards. Built tough for long life and minimal downtime.

Greater stability and reach of your machine is achieved through the compact height. Designed for ease of maintainance, with hardened chrome plated pivot pins, easy access grease points and well guarded hydraulic cylinders.

Capacity ranges from 0.6m² to 1.0m²

Powerhand GH, the ultimate log handling grapple!

The perfect load

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

There's nothing worse than a jammed or crooked lifted load that leads to a messy pile. Powerhand has taken care of this. Our log grapples 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.

powerhand from concept to creation


Like all Powerhand products the GH 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, from design to manufacture, we complete 100% 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.

We have developed and refined our attachments over 30 years in collaboration with many of the industries' leading users, with the aim of delivering you 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. The rotator, its 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, manufacturing the widest range of rotator products. They employ the most advanced design and manufacturing systems available, with industry leading testing systems being used to rigorously test components after final assembly. All to ensure the most durable rotators possible are created!

The GH series is fitted with Indexators high torque industrial IR 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 array of machines and applications.

Links are available as standard, swing dampening or for fixed 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.
