Over 20 years experience designing excavator grapples and grabs gives the customer confidence that they are buying a product that will last and be supported in years to come.

The advantage of the pendulum rotator and grab is that the working face is always horizontal so its the best for dragging and feeding chippers. The rotator and grapple can be slightly lighter duty as the swinging action takes pressure off the rotator and grab.

Plumbing options: the pendulum link can be mounted directly to the machine (quick hitch and tilt ram removed) if the machine is only used for logging or it can be mounted on a head bracket to attach to the quick hitch. The tilt ram can be used to operate the grab and the hammer piping will operate the rotator.

Shaft and flange mounted rotators are available depending on the application. The ports of flange mounted rotators are through the base so the rotator protects the hydraulic hoses. The super heavy duty Indexator XR series also suit pendulum mount applications and are far stronger than the Indexator IR series. rigid mount models are specially built to cope with the rigours of demolition work on heavy duty excavators.

Intermercato's cast casing is one of the strongest on the market, designed to last in the harshest environments.

All rotators have endless rotation - able to spin a full 360 degrees continuously.

Hydraulic hooks with pilot operated check valves are also available from Intermercato, please ask for more information.
