The heavy-duty timber grab is equipped with a stronger boom and hydraulic rotator and larger grapple. It is intended especially for Avant 700 and 800 series.
The arborist kit which mounts on the boom is also a standard feature.
When cutting a tree you can push the tree down with it if necessary, instead of pushing by hand. It is also possible to attach a rope on the bracket on the kit, which enables towing the logs by pulling them with the loader.
The optional Opticontrol is recommended with a grab with hydraulic rotator, for operating the grab opening/closing and rotation (requires also 6 or 8 function joystick on the loader).
There are also two timber grab models that mount directly on the attachment coupling plate of the loader: one with hydraulic rotator and one without a rotator. They are equipped with the same grapple as the A438973 HD grab.
