The Railway Signal Post Grapple from Gater Grapples is an innovative new excavator attachment designed to simplify the work of removing and re-installing railway signal posts. With this attachment maintenance crews are no longer required to manhandle signal posts using slings and chains, risking injury in the process. Nicknamed "The Twister" the grapple rotates hydraulically around two axis giving the operator precision control in aligning the post with the mounting base.

To remove the old post, the grapple is used to steady it while the mounting hardware is disconnected. The post is then lifted, rotated to horizontal and set aside. The new post may then be lifted, rotated to vertical and swung into position above the mounting base. Here, the grapple's unique design allows the signal post to be rotated about a fixed center point. This feature allows the operator to make fine adjustments to align the mounting hardware. Installation is completed quickly, easily and safely.

The Railway Signal Post Grapple comes complete with a hydraulic valve in the head and controls for the cab. Hydraulic components include variable flow controls to adjust speed and adjustable power controls for the jaw open/close functions. A mechanical safety lock prevents the grapple from accidentally releasing the post.

The model 18 is designed for excavators in the 5 – 12 ton class. It is a certified lifting device with a rated capacity of 1,000 lbs. The grapple is also suitable for handling street light poles within its rated capacity.
