www.columbusequipment.com The Rotobec 360-degree rotating grapple and saw com- bination increases the versatility of a Komatsu excavator and turns it into the most efficient tool for clearing land feeding a grinder or loading a truck with logs. The rotating grapple allows an operator to orient the load properly without having to move the carriers tracks increasing productivity and reducing wear on the machine noted Marc Baillargeon director of sales for Rotobec. This is particularly useful in situations ranging from clearing land for pipelines to handling mats to build roads or bridges. Adding a Rotobec grapple saw to the rotating grapple attachment further increases productivity. There is no need for the operator to set aside logs that are too long so he can process them later he can cut them while loading the grinder or truck. The operator can also trim trees during land clearing. The grapple saw eliminates the need for a worker to be stationed on the ground to use a chainsaw manually. Columbus Equipment Company has outfitted two Komatsu PC290LC-10 excavators with the rotating grapple and saw combination for use on pipeline work said Tim Smith Environmental Division sales manager. Rotobec gives our contractors an advantage in versatility and production because of the functionality of the grapple and saw combination he said. The rotating grapple with a bar saw attached allows contractors to process the wood before chipping or grinding it on the jobsite. The PC290s outfitted with single grousers are also available for rental. Columbus Equipment has installed many Rotobec power attachments and its technicians are highly skilled Baillargeon said. Columbus Equipments technicians will install the attachments and adjust the flows and pressures so that the user gets the optimal performance out of the machine.
