HYPRO FG50EC Felling Grapple/Energy Felling Grapple

The HYPRO FG50EC felling grapple was developed for minimum hose installation, low weight and full control over the felling grapple’s different functions. The felling grapple is fed by two hoses where each function (grab, tilt and cutting saw) is fully controlled via the commands ”open grapple” or ”lose grapple” with electrical switching between the functions. Switching take place via cable or radio control. The felling grapple can in principle be mounted on all cranes with rotators – for example, lorries, forest trailers, forwarders and excavators.

HYPRO FG50EC Felling Grapple

The HYPRO FG50EC felling grapple is used to fell, cut, load and unload trees, branches and brushwood in forests, along roads, powerline corridors, in parks and urban environments and in forests. The FG50EC can precisely control the tilt both up and down in locked position, but can also put the tilt in flexible floating position. In combination with full control over the cutting saw, this makes the FG50EC a highly effective cutting tool even in very tight and demanding spaces. Grapple, cut and active tilt function are interrupted when the machine operator releases the command in the joystick. Together with the felling grapple’s flexibility and hydraulic tilt joint, it is possible to simply access the tree’s trunk or branches at the right felling angle.

The grapple’s hydraulic valve section needs to be equipped with open centre (motor slide), but if this is not possible, a simple external ”return bypass kit” can be ordered together with the felling grapple.

The felling grapple is supplied as standard in the energy grapple version and is then equipped with open grapple fingers (brush/energy wood grapple), 10cc saw motor and 59 centimetre saw bar, which can handle up to Ø50 centimetre cuts. It can also be equipped with a special, 54 centimetre saw bar (energy bar) to enable cutting of everything from shrubbery all the way up to large 45 centimetre cuts with more control of the chain’s tension when clearing brush.

The strength in the model lies in its proven robust construction, retaining low weight and precision controlled functions. Technical innovation has produced high efficiency in an easy-to use product, rapidly streamlining the work as well as enhancing ergonomics and safety for the user in the felling operation.
