Demolition Grabs / Selector Grabs from McQuaid Engineering! The McQuaid Selector Grab is the ideal excavator attachment for demolition, sorting, reclamation and recycling activities. Reliable, service friendly and extremely strong our demolition grabs are characterised by their robust construction which guarantees longevity.

The McQuaid selector/ demolition grab has perforated jaws giving a full view of the materials being handled and allows finer dust and gravel through. Manufactured from special steel built to ISO 3834 – 3 and ISO 9001:2015 standards, the perforated jaw skins are light yet strong and durable. Our selector grabs are manufactured to have wide pivotal points and hardened, over dimensioned pins and bearings. Extra wide bushes decrease the overall tension in the construction, prolonging the life of the demolition grab.

In the event of a sudden drop in oil pressure, the demolition grabs cylinder(s) have a safety valve to prevent accidental opening. The cylinder has an extra-long stroke, so the selector grabs jaws always align perfectly with each other, even if the cutting edges are worn.

  • Load safety valve ensures safety during operation
  • Integrated pressure relief valve protects against overcharge
