Jan. 25, 2017 - Pierce GP combines grappling and processing features into one work tool.
The Pierce Grapple Processor is a work tool that offers loading utility and processing productivity in one tough machine. It shovels, sorts and loads like a grapple — and delimbs, measures and cuts like a processor.
“The Pierce GP is gaining traction among many of our logging customers” says Greg Hildebrandt, Pierce general sales manager. “They’re pleased by their savings in time, fuel, labuor and maintenance costs, as well as impressed by the GP’s ability productivity levels.”
The unique grapple arms offer versatility. Built to handle big timber up to 52” in diameter, they’re ideal for picking up individual stems as well as handling multiple logs without criss-crossing. Other ground-breaking features on the Pierce GP include integral feed wheels that allow users to increase the distance of each shovel turn and thus reduce the number of turns to the landing. Plus the full scale measuring system that calculates log length and diameter, making it easy to process and merchandise logs with precision accuracy.
The GP’s innovative design makes it possible to also reposition long logs, handle bundles of short wood and distribute brush. It can be used with both new and preexisting log loaders, making it economical as well as efficient.
The Pierce GP is value priced at a cost that is significantly less than a conventional processing head.
“The Pierce GP represents the best of our company’s pioneering spirit, innovative engineering and state-of-the-art technology,” says Hildebrandt. “The interest we are receiving confirms our belief that this machine represents a significant industry advance to both large and small logging customers.”
