In the near future, the Pladdet gripper saw will be available with a cross-cut function, to grab and cross-cut wood. This is often used when felling parts of trees and pruning or moving wood.Read more

The Pladdet wood grapple is completely made of wear-resistant steel.
Besides the wood grapple, the grappling saw is available with a cross-cut function, with a choice of a chain saw or a fixed blade. A chainsaw can cut, but does not get in the way of completely filling the gripper shells with wood. The fixed blade, on the other hand, does get in the way when moving several logs or branches and is not suitable for skipping a lot of wood.
A wood gripper with round teeth can grip a log better than straight teeth. The gripper is available with 5 or 7 tines. The advantage of 5 tines is a lower total weight of the gripper. The advantage of 7 tines is a higher maximum load.
