Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great. Tons of hours left on them!" - Levi McDermott (Mustang 2086 skid steer loader);                                                                                           "Made my bobcat work like a Cat dozer; Easy on off" - Roy Young (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "I think you make a superior product..." - Eric Wellish, (Case 1845C skid steer loader);                                                                                           "I really like the traction that I get from my tracks, and will most likely consider repurchasing when needed... I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product...

3 Great Skid Steer Grapple Attachments for Storm Clean-Up

When a storm comes through your area, it can leave the neighborhood in shambles. From knocking out power lines to splitting trees to breaking branches, there’s always something that goes wrong in the wake of powerful weather. If you routinely get storms like these, it’s crucial that you have the equipment you need to clean up the resulting debris. These are three great skid steer grapple attachments for storm clean-up and why you need them in your arsenal.

Skid Steer Log Grapple

One of the first attachments to keep in mind for this application is the skid steer log grapple. Designed with long, serrated tines and a wide opening maw, these attachments can grab and lift sections of trees with ample security. As such, they’re the perfect tool for removing fallen trees and their branches from a property. They also perform well when removing larger trees struck by lightning. You’ll just need to cut them into smaller sections for optimal transport.

Skid Steer Root Rake Grapples

Another great skid steer grapple attachment for storm clean-up projects is the root rake grapple. As its name suggests, this attachment acts like a rake to collect debris as you move along the ground. Then, its powerful hydraulic grapple shuts over the pile so that you can lift and properly load up the truck to dispose of these items. Root rake grapples are ideal for collecting smaller debris over larger areas because they make the process quicker and easier overall.

Heavy Duty Skid Steer Grapple Bucket

You’ll want a heavy-duty grapple bucket on your wish list as well for this type of application. This grapple has a closed bottom bucket, allowing you to better collect debris for a more thorough removal. Not only does this make lifting debris much easier, but it also has incredible versatility in what you can lift. These attachments can pick up anything left after a storm, from smaller rocks and bricks to branches, leaves, or wood chips. They can also pick up smaller broken construction materials, such as planks and nails, while the other two attachments can only lift larger items.

The next time a heavy storm heads your way, make sure you’re prepared. McLaren Industries provides premium grapple attachments to help you clean up debris safely and save time while doing so. From skid steer log grapples to heavy-duty buckets, we offer the above products and more to ensure you always have the necessary resources for every stage of the clean-up process.
