Commercial Rock & Brush Grapple

The #1 selling grapple every year in the lineup is the Prime Commercial Rock & Brush Grapple. If you want versatility this is by far the best option in or opinion. Personally, we use this weekly on our hunting land for moving downed trees, brush, ripping out rocks that are constantly in the way, piling split wood for the fireplace and the list goes on and on. The features below are the key reasons for its unmatched popularity:

  • 5 sizes available for large or small skid steers: 62”, 68”, 74”, 78” & 84”
  • 3” spacing on the bucket bottom with 3/8” solid steel tines 
  • 3/8” solid steel bolt on removable side plates for versatility 
  • ½” solid steel Grade 50 hardened cutting edge
  • All pivot points are greaseable 
  • Optional bolt on cylinder guards to protect your cylinders from debris 
  • Visibility cut outs on grapples so you can see what you are going to grapple with
  • ½” welded grapple stops to prevent operator error of over centering grapples and doing any damage to your cylinders 
  • Reinforced outside tines with cold rolled pins

Commercial Root Grapple

When in thick soil conditions the Commercial Root Grapple is a prime candidate for any task you want to throw at it. One main difference in comparison to the Rock & Brush Grapple is the tine spacing goes from 3” to 6” to deal with real gummy soil conditions. So, the real focus here is knowing where and what kind of jobs you are going to tackle with your skid steer grapple. With the additional spacing between the tines we’ve enhanced the thickness to ½” to meet the commercial grade standards that Prime Attachments bring to the marketplace. 

  • 3 sizes available for large or small skid steers: 69”, 76” & 83”
  • 6” spacing on the bucket bottom with 1/2” solid steel tines 
  • 1/2” solid steel sides 
  • ½” solid steel Grade 50 hardened cutting edge
  • All pivot points are greaseable 
  • Optional bolt on cylinder guards to protect your cylinders from debris 
  • Visibility cut outs on grapples so you can see what you are going to grapple with
  • ½” welded grapple stops to prevent operator error of over centering grapples and doing any damage to your cylinders 

Industrial Clam Grapple

The Prime Attachment Industrial Clam Grapple is one of the beefiest grapples I’ve ever used in my life! This beast features a ¾” grade 50 hardened steel bottom frame and a ½” grade 50 hardened steel top that combine for one heck of a pinch. With serrated jaws throughout the frame and fully welded excavator teeth for digging, this grapple is literally a force to be reckoned with. The clam style grapple is increasing in popularity year over year and is rising in the ranks quickly here at Prime Attachments. We like to always offer our customer variety for what they specifically need, so Prime offers the traditional solid one-piece clam and the new style dual arm clam.

The way Prime welds, braces, gusseted and went the extra mile on features in this featured grapple says it all.

Solo Rock & Brush Grapple

Solo Grapple

Prime Attachments has always embraced the philosophy of having attachments that work for everybody in the market. The Solo Rock & Brush Grapple is a fantastic example of this. Prime Attachments takes the #1 selling Rock & Brush Grapple and simply cuts it in half, making a few tweaks along the way, to offer a much lighter but still badass version for the smaller skid steer market. There has been such a wave of popularity amongst the skid steer and multi-purpose front end tractor loader now days that Prime Attachments couldn’t help themselves but to come out with a grapple for those in need of a grapple that allows versatility for customers with a smaller lifting capacity. 

  • 2 sizes available for smaller skid steers and compact tractors: 48” & 52”
  • 3” spacing between tines
  • 5/16” or ¼” tines available pending lifting capacity

High Capacity / Round Bale Grapple

Skid steer grapples are popular for many reasons, but one main reason is multi use and versatility. The commonly referred to Round Bale Grapple or High Capacity Grapple is just that. Prime Attachments takes a high capacity snow bucket and throws some heavy-duty skid steer grapples on top of the bucket and you have yourself a bingo for getting a variety of tasks done. Extremely popular for loading and transporting round bales but also convenient for moving a high volume of snow, feed, etc. 

  • 3 sizes available and most common: 7’ and 8’
  • 3/16” bucket bottom material for durability 
  • 5/16” side plates fully welded
  • Under supports of ½” x 2 ½” welded straps
  • ¾” bolt on or fully smooth welded cutting edges for options
  • 74 ½” opening 
  • Fully greaseable pivot points

Rock Ripper Grapple

Rock Ripper Grapple

If you are looking for a tack driver of a grapple, look no further than the Prime Rock Ripper Grapple. The video footage and customer reviews on this grapple are phenomenal. The triple tine 1” hardened steel base is fully gusseted with ½” cutting edge that is built to be driven into the ground to pry out pesky rocks and stumps that need to be dealt with. You can go into the earth, drive through the woods knocking trees and debris down, use the grapple to pick up and move items, you name it and this grapple is up to the challenge. One major point of emphasis on this grapple is that it really is best served on the larger skid steer track and wheel machines because the weight of your machine can really be applied to your attachment. 

  • Available with or without the grapple option
  • 1” hardened grade 50 tines
  • ½” hardened cutting edge gusseting 
  • Grapple option with visibility cut outs
  • Triple pass award winning welding

Stump Bucket Grapple

Stump Bucket Grapple

Similar in application to the rock ripper grapple, Prime features a stump bucket with the addition of a grapple and aggressive excavator teeth. This allows for easy digging for rock and stump removal but also more of a bucket bottom for transporting items at the same time. The excavator teeth allow for easy digging and are also replaceable. The Prime Stump Bucket and Stump Bucket Grapple is by far a leader in the industry with a massive bucket depth of over 59” and an opening of over 52” on this beast.

  • ½” hardened cutting edge gusseting

Material Scrap or Dirt Bucket Grapple

Dirt Bucket Grapple

Loaded with options on cutting edges, bucket thickness, bolt on or solid side plates, fully closed or visibility cut out style grapples this type of grapple bucket provides a lot of durability and versatility to the skid steer operator. Prime Attachments recommends going with the commercial grade version which will last you forever as the shell starts with a ¼” super heavy-duty frame that is formed and gusseted with all ½” runners. The bolt on side plates also bolt to an extra ½” runner side that ties the frame together for enhanced durability. With or without the side plates on this bucket is made for battling the toughest jobs on the biggest side steers.
