Grapple for unloading AgBag type feed storage. This patent-pending technology is designed to penatrate tough haylage and grasses allowing the loader to leave with a full bucket. The PushAway™ grapple has twin hydraulic cylinders and hardened teeth designed to penatrate the feed. When reaching the end of the stroke an adjustable hydraulic valve automatically energises another set of hydraulic cylinders pushing the loader away with 12 tons of force, separating the feed in the bucket from the pile. Because the bucket is full only 1/2 the trips to the bag are necessary.
By using the grapple to fill the bucket instead of pushing a bucket into the feed you don't have the spinning in the mud or on the plastic material. This helps reduce the amount of ruts around the bags. Adjustable width grapples can be added to your bucket or purchased with a bucket.
