Stand Up to Any Task with a John Deere Rock and Scrap Grapple

April 16, 2019

When you’re on the hunt for the perfect John Deere equipment for clearing land, removing brush, and cleaning up a job site, you may want to consider a grapple. Scrap and rock grapples can handle a wide variety of tasks, ranging from disaster cleanup to general job site tidying.

All rock and scrap grapple models from John Deere are able to handle large loads and difficult materials. Rock grapples, in particular, have a welded-in serrated cutting edge that easily penetrates all ground conditions. Scrap grapples feature open side with bolt-on side plates, which allows for the easy grappling of material that is wider than the bucket. Additionally, a predrilled lip makes it simple to add a bolt-on replaceable cutting edge for longer wear life.

John Deere: Monster of the Forest

December 8, 2010

The John Deere Construction and Forestry Division was established in the mid-1950′s, back then called the Industrial Equipment Division. Deere began producing forestry machines in earnest at that time, but in reality, Deere products have been working in the woods since the early part of the last century. Today’s tough-but-smart machines can cut an entire tree into precisely measured sections in a matter of seconds. After rapidly sawing the tree from the base, the processing head keeps hold, dropping the tree parallel to the ground then quickly pulling it through, delimbing and cutting to desired length. It’s the very latest technology for an age-old profession.
