This accessory is a clam shell grab used for excavation or materials handling.

There is no information about the real grab.

Detail and Features

This is a finely crafted metal part.  The clam shells are well detailed with bolt details and good teeth.  There are very small pulleys for the opening mechanism with the lower ones having the appearance of spokes.  A steadying chain is attached to one side.

The grab opens to a reasonable angle.

Quality and Price

It is a high quality metal part which is good value.


This is a well made part which is finely crafted and highly recommended.


This accessory first appeared in the NZG catalogue in 2003.
