Designed primarily for demolition work, but also applicable for the crushing and loading of garbage, wood waste and construction debris, the XCG2 is the latest in the “Contractor Grapple” product line from Nye Manufacturing. With tips made of AR400 steel with improved geometry for better penetration, the grapple’s tines are made from QT100 steel plate, serrated on the sides for improved gripping/pulling of material. Stringers extend all the way from the tips to the bridge, forming an individual T1 box section for each tine. On the back of the XCG2’s tines, there is an AR400 wear plate. The main pivot point bushings are designed to keep the grapple together when the main pin is removed.
