Powerhand VK Series
High capacity, low height log carrying grapple
Trusted and used by many of Europe's largest sawmills, the VK grapple is the ideal log handling and loading grapple for excavators, materials handlers and loader cranes in sawmills and loading yards; where large capacity but low height is a must.
The compact height of the VK series provides greater machine stability and allows greater reach.
Capacity ranges from 0.8m² to 1.25m².
The perfect load
Grab a perfect load everytime and improve your efficiency with Powerhand's log hugging leg design.
There is nothing worse than a jammed or crooked lifting load that leads to a messy pile but Powerhand has taken care of this. Powerhand log grapples feature legs that have been expertly 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 height is reduced. This makes it possible to stack higher whilst maintaining machine stability.
When carrying logs are the sawmill, the compact height also allows for loads to be carried with the boom held lower, increasing the stability of the machine.
CONCEPT TO CREATION
Like all Powerhand products the VK series is designed and built in house
We know that the only way to guarantee the highest quality products is to control the whole process. That is why the whole design and manufacturing process is completed in our factory in Scotland.
We are never satisfied and are proud to be continually seeking to find ways to improve our concepts and to be at the forefront of manufacturing technology.
For more than 30 years we have developed and refined our attachments in collaboration with many of the industries' leading users, with the aim of providing the ultimate end product and unbeatable customer experience.
WORLD CLASS ROTATIONS
World class attachments require world class 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 performance and minimal downtime, both must be of the highest quality.
Powerhand has developed 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. Indexator employ the most advanced design and manufacturing systems with industry leading testing systems to rigorously test components after final assembly. This is done to ensure that the most durable rotators possible are created!
The VK series is fitted with Indexator's high torque industrial IR series rotators as standard.
