The new Taupo Hand mKIII is a versatile, multipurpose extension for a front end loader, digger or skid steer loader. With it’s unique design and patented curvature, the Taupo Hand is designed to handle a multitude of tasks from root raking and forestry grappling to working with large boulders and everything in between.

Redesigned
The new mKIII design was created with maximum practicality in mind with reduced weight and increased strength being the main objective. This has allowed for competitive pricing and the ability of customisation to suit any situation.

​Curved tynes

Working like an extended hand on a front-end loader, the curved tynes at the bottom of the Taupo hand sit almost flat on the ground, which makes it perfect for picking up branches and tree-toppings without digging into the ground.

Bisalloy Steel

The Taupo Hand is constructed using high tensile, hardened Bisalloy steel that is able to handle immense pressure and lifting weights.

Double clevis   

By using a double clevis hinge system, the jaws are able to open 180˚ making it possible to attain a full load of pit silage. The structural design and curvature of the bottom jaw allows objects such as logs to be rolled into the hand.

Backing plates

Made to order backing plates mean the Taupo Hand will fit any loader. There is also an option to reverse-mount to pull logs and scrub toward the operator with full control.

 

Strengthened teeth

With a steel bar running the width of the hand close to the tip, the teeth are supported where there is maximum stress. This also means the hand is not closed too far resulting in damage to the implement.

 

Covered back

The back of the Taupo Hand is completely covered in to prevent damage to radiators from rogue sticks.

Depending on the equipment used, the Taupo Hand is available with different sized tines

T-REX

With an opening width of 1.2m while maintaining an overall width of 1.8m, T-Rex is ideal for tractors 60hp+ or skidsteer loaders. It has 16mm tines with hardened bisalloy used on the pivot plates around the high tensile pins and weighs 382kg

JAWS

Jaws is the standard model for tractors 100hp+ ideal as a multi tool around the farm from a silage grab to moving tires to clearing up shelter belt trimmings. With an opening width of 1.6m and an overall width of 1.8m, It has 16mm tines with hardened bisalloy steel used on the pivot plates around the high tensile pins and weighs 500kg

JAWS 2.5m

Jaws 2.5m is just as it sounds -Jaws but with a wider bite. Appropriate for tractors 130hp+ as it weighs in slightly more than the standard at 659kg. Designed specifically for clearing trees and shrub along the ground with the extra width allowing more pick up in a single bite. It opens to 1.6 and is made with 16mm tines with hardened bisalloy steel used on the pivot plates around the high tensile pins.

GODZILLA

Godzilla is designed specifically for diggers/excavators up to 12tonne. Using 25mm tines with hardened bisalloy where it is needed most (around the pivot plates and hardened pins) means Godzilla is extremely strong and can handle a heavy workload. Mounting plates are custom made to fit any digger with hoses also cut to fit. 

TITAN

Titan is the largest in the family of Taupo Hand grapples and is suitable for 20 Tonne excavators. Weighing 1.3t and built with

40mm tines, Titan is designed specifically for diggers/excavators that have an extreme workload from pulling out trees and clearing general green waste to rock grappling. A cutter bar can be added to the bottom for pulling out shrub etc and hardened teeth can be placed over existing tine feet for digging. Mounting plates are custom made to fit any digger with hoses also cut to fit.
