Falcon Grapple Claw

  • Info
  • Specs


The Falcon Claw is the logging industry’s most widely use motorized, fully remote controlled, Grapple Carriage. This hydraulically operated grapple significantly reduces Health & Safety risks to crew members whilst increasing the efficiency of the log extraction process. With the 1750 model, which comes standard with the heavy-duty grapple, at an opening of 78″ and has a payload of up to 17,500 lb, faster cycle times are a given.

  • High Strength Bisalloy Frame
  • Infrared Camera
  • Purpose-built Bunching Grapple
  • Easy Access Maintenance Panels
  • LED Flood Lights
  • Anti-Swing Brakes
  • Fire Suppression


Over tens of thousand of operational hours, the Falcon Claw has dramatically reduced the accident and serious harm rates in the crews where the equipment has been operating.

  • Removes the need to have crew down the hill.
  • A Poleman is no longer required at the top of the skid.
  • The Yarder operator has complete visibility and control of the extraction process.


By removing Breaker Outs and Polemen from the log extraction process, the Falcon Claw not only reduces potential Health and Safety risks, it also makes the entire process fully mechanised and more cost effective whilst maintaining productivity.

  • The Falcon Claw operates at a fraction of the cost of three crew members.
  • Faster cycle time means the Falcon Claw is as productive as Breaking Out and on steeper slopes can be more productive.
  • By mechanising extraction, it allows crew members to be allocated to other tasks or crew where required.


Canadian logging conditions can mean working in the dark, the rain, the snow and every other weather condition possible. The Falcon Claw is designed to be operated in a wide range of weather conditions and temperatures.

  • The high-quality waterproof camera has built in technology for low light and poor visibility operation.
  • An inbuilt light enables the operator to work any time, day or night.
  • The easy to use joystick control allows the Yarder Operator to control the carriage at the push of a button.
