Benefits
  • The Perfect Load  Achieve a 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. The VK 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.
  • Stack it High  The VK series is compact in height allowing higher stacking from the same base machine. The horizontal ram design of the VK means that overall height is reduced, making it possible to stack higher, while maintaining machine stability. When carrying logs around the sawmill, the compact height also allows for loads to be carried with the boom lower, increasing the stability of the machine.
