"By improving the G300B series of grapples, Caterpillar sets new standards in this area, while helping companies maximize the return on their demolition, sorting and loading," said Dave Becktel, Commercial Manager at Caterpillar Work Tools BV "We are convinced that the new grapples confirm our leadership position in the equipment for hydraulic excavators and wheel loaders. "
Grapples incorporate new features and enhancements designed to maximize productivity and reduce downtime. Among them:
Keeping capabilities of the load are accounted for by the wide opening and building shells, which allow to firmly grasp a wide range of materials, wood profiles with pieces of stone. Once opened, the shells draw a square that does not impede access to materials. The smooth inner surface and the high discharge height can fully exploit the capabilities of loading.
Cutting edge, bolt recessed
The cutting blade of new grapples is fixed to the recessed bolts, resulting in a decreased resistance and improved filling. Furthermore, replacement of cutting blades is simplified. The cutting blade bolt of new grapples has a wear plate extra. Moreover, the cutting blades have a roughness that prevents duplication of shells, which is particularly important in recycling applications.
New security feature, these grippers are equipped with a check valve as standard. In case of rupture of the hose, the check valve keeps the pressure on the cylinder while sparing the machine. It also eliminates the need to maintain the closure function enabled, which is an important advantage in recycling applications. There is also an increase in energy efficiency since the oil supply is interrupted when the check valve is active.
Version with fixed upper head
G310B G315B and models are available with hinge plates with quick-CW set to head higher. This version offers the advantage of reducing the weight of the machine, given the absence of mounting bracket, and the cumulative height, increasing the chances of compatibility with other machines.
Excellent return on investment
Thanks to the multifunctional pliers, you can achieve significant savings in terms of transportation costs and to discharge, but also in terms of manpower. Indeed, this clamp to sort rubbish at source and transported separately to the recycling centers. The clamp multifunctional is the ideal tool for the "naked" of a building or structure before its demolition complete. With the proliferation of environmental regulations, it is essential equipment for all businesses and demolition recycling.
Easy installation and use
With a mounting bracket, the clip can pass from one carrier to another. Combined with a quick CW Specifically, it attaches in seconds to other Cat Work Tools ®. The Cat excavators are equipped with hydraulic parameters factory programmed for multifunctional pliers.
Ease of positioning and maneuvering
All grapples Series G300 are equipped with a 360 ° hydraulic rotation, which allows the clamp to address materials and demolish them from any angle, thus reducing the movement of the carrier base .
Ease of maintenance
Signs maintenance easier access to major components. Moreover, with easy access to lubrication points, weekly meetings will be sufficient to reduce downtime.
Types of shells
Grapples Series G300 come in two types of shells: the shells open for demolition (D version) and closed shells for recycling (R version).
