Grab Fork

A three-dimensional grab fork is available from Westendorf Manufacturing, Onawa, IA. The unit's dual-action pivot points allow the claw to reach out beyond the bucket, pivot to grab material and pack it back into the bucket.

The claw also opens wide enough so the bucket's edge can be flush against the wall of a bunker silo. It also easily handles large round bales and reaches into plastic silage tubes. It mounts easily in minutes.
