Tigercat’s BG13 Large Capacity Bunching Grapple Designed for Logging Operations

June 28, 2022
The large 1.2 m2 (13 square-foot) capacity grapple maximizes load size and minimizes cycle times, significantly increasing productivity.

The new Tigercat BG13 is a large capacity bunching grapple suited to high production shovel logging operations. The BG13 bunching grapple design is based on the Tigercat skidder grapples, featuring a strong grapple box, large, tong cylinders, and a choice of plate or boxed tongs.

High-quality, heavy-duty components are used throughout. The rotate motor and manifold are common with the Tigercat LG4053 and LG5057 loader grapples. Hydraulic hoses are routed on top of the boom and under the connecting pin, protecting the hoses from damage.

The large 1.2 m2 (13 square-foot) capacity grapple maximizes load size and minimizes cycle times, significantly increasing productivity. The wide tip-to-tip grapple opening allows scattered bunches to be quickly gathered.

The Tigercat BG13 bunching grapple is matched to LSX870D and LS855E carriers.
