The Digging Grab with horizontal hydraulic cylinder is our attachment solution for efficient digging of trenches and shafts. Due to the optimized shell shape, the movement of bulk material and the gripping of larger objects is possible at the same time. The grab's patented cylinder design combines a compact structure with strong, double-acting closing force and high damage resistance. The Digging Grab with horizontal cylinder is available as a fixed mount or swinging mount version.
The grab has a low height both in closed and open position. The compact design ensures a perfect power-to-weight ratio.
The volume and span of the shells are very wide when open, which, in addition to the digging function, allows gripping a wide variety of materials.
The specially developed DMS cylinder drive is the hydraulic heart of our grabs. Due to the double-acting plunger cylinder with oil pressure supply on both sides, the force generated for opening and closing is identical. Inside the cylinder, not only the piston rod is completely encapsulated and protected. The oil channels also run internally, eliminating the need for vulnerable hoses on the exterior.
With the horizontal alignment, ideal force transmission can be achieved at compact height, providing our grabs with a perfect power-to-weight ratio. With this design and technology, DMS creates ideal conditions for performance, robustness and durability.
