GMT Grapple Saw Total Tree Control System

Grapple saws GMT035 and GMT050 enable trees to be removed in sections. Flexible, tension-free grasping, sawing and controlled felling. These grapple saws have proven themselves for more than 10 years in a variety of situations. The product range includes grapple saws with the Total Tree Control (TTC) system. The GMT035 TTC and GMT050 TTC have been designed to enable tree sections to be held after sawing; this not only blocks the tilt cylinder of the grapple saw, but also the multidirectional movement of the Cardan suspension. With just one push of a button, tree sections can be grasped flexibly and removed in a fixed position! There are no limits to holding sawn-off tree sections, but for safety reasons, the maximum permitted workload of the crane on your carrying vehicle is pre-set at the factory. The design and operation is patented.
