The McQuaid range of Orange Peel Grabs are the perfect attachments for scrap processing, auto handling, tyres and bulk cargo. The Orange Peel Grabs are available with half closed or closed tines. McQuaid orange peel grabs can safely handle shredded scrap, waste, car bodies and many other materials.

Built to exact tolerances from premium materials, our orange peel grabs have an excellent strength to weight ratio. Their sturdy design guarantees a long service life. The gripping arms protect the hydraulic cylinder pistons, and all other connections are located in the tough central piece of the scrap grab.

There are three options available for the orange peel grabs depending on the type of application it is required for; free rotation, with rotator, or integrated rotation (heavy duty) with sturdy slewing.

The tough, hard wearing design ensures maximum penetration while the hardened, over-dimensioned pins in wide bearing bushes form an extremely robust pivot hinge for the grab tines.
