The Genesis Handling Grapple is designed with streamlined features that require less maintenance.

Designed for waste handling and recycling, C&D material handling and sorting, and primary demolition applications, the GHG is available with perforated or heavy-duty ribbed tines that close at a very flat angle to assist in compacting material. Maximum crushing force densifies material while the strong rotation system resists back-driving forces.

The GHG contains a single, oversized cylinder with dual drag links that minimizes the number of moving parts, simplifying the hydraulic system and reducing maintenance.
