GT SERIES - A grapple specifically designed for single log handling

Trusted by many of the largest sawmills in Europe, the GT series is the smallest grapple in the Powerhand sawmill range.

Whether sorting logs on a line or handling single poles, the GT is the perfect grapple for this task. Penetrate piles of stacked material like never before with the GT's narrow finger-like tine design and keep your log line moving at unprecedented speed with the fast action of the legs. Ideal for sorting misaligned logs.

Capacity ranges from 0.15m² to 0.2m²

Finger like tines

Penetrate the log pile to easily pick up a single log

The GT Series features a purpose built leg design, allowing you to penetrate between logs and grab a single one. The traditional curved leg shape of a log bundling grapple causes the tines to stick on top of adjacent logs when attempting to pick up a single log. That is why we have designed the GT series legs to be straighter and narrower, providing great single log picking dexterity.

Your grapple will never jam on top of the log pile again.

Like all Powerhand products the GT 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 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 GT series is fitted with Indexator's 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 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.
