McQuaid Engineering Log Grabs are the ideal excavator attachment for forestry applications. The log grab is widely used for the handling and processing of timber, rocks, demolition and construction materials. Our powerful, multi-purpose hydraulic log grabs are designed to be lightweight, yet strong and durable.

McQuaid log grabs are equipped with a sturdy hydraulic rotator that is rigidly connected to the excavator/ carrier arm, ensuring maximum precision work. The powerful hydraulic motor, working in conjunction with the heavy-duty slew ring and pinion, provides the log grab with full 360° rotation. We also offer a full range of mechanical log grabs.

The hydraulic cylinders are housed within the body of the log grab, ensuring maximum protection. These heavy-duty cylinders with a built-in positive load holding valve ensure a positive grip in case of pressure loss. They also ensure excellent closing, with a strong grip being maintained at all times. The arms of the log grab have an optimised curvature, designed to guarantee the maximum load. The arms close one inside the other, allowing a firm grip even on single logs, or those with a small diameter.

The log grab components are manufactured from high grade wear-resistant materials, ensuring durability and longevity, even in the toughest of applications.
