The Original BMG built with Hardox® Wear Plate

The original mini-grapple by Branch Manager™ with Hardox® wear plate in the body and arms.

Using Hardox® wear plate instead of our standard Grade 60 increases the strength by up to three times while also providing superior abrasion resistance.


Mounts onto all mini-loaders, coming fully assembled & ready to go to work. Speed up your forwarding operations with the BMG!

The swivel mount with "knock around" rotation means less maintenance and less weight, allowing you to lift more. We don't use locking pins on the rotation and instead prefer to heel the log with log dogs to provide a similar and intuitive function.

Customers with competitor's products have reported over the years that locking pins sheer and spring returns break.

Same large 56" opening with a light weight of 265 lbs.

With the free rotation you turn the grapple instead of your machine, saving wear & tear on both your customers' lawns & your machine

Built with the same great features of the original BMG

The built-in tree pusher allows you to assist felling a stem

Aggressive teeth help the tree pusher stay on track

3" Rope Bollard for you to easily capture the rope mid-line for lifting or directing in tree operations

If you're wondering why I say it's rated for 200 lbs, it's because I don't know how strong your machine is. It scares me that tree guys would try to tie off a 4000 lb limb for a machine that weighs 2000 lbs.
Branch Manager BMG Grapple Trailer Hitch Receiver Chipper Bubble Small

Handy receiver hitch to move a chipper or anything!

Don't forget to hook the safety chain on your equipment to the safety chain slot
Branch Manager Grapple (BMG) Saw Chainsaw Scabbard Carry

You know when you're driving your machine & you have no place to put your saw? The Branch Manager™ Mini Grapple solves this by giving you dual saw scabbards, built with UHS industrial plastic to safely transport your saws without dulling the teeth.

"A tree guy said 'Hey, when I'm hauling logs & brush I'll damage the saw!' The scabbards are only meant for transporting your saws, do not have saws in there when you're using the grapple!"

Carry your brush and logs out long instead of wide, get bigger pieces through tighter accesses. Turn the grapple not your machine, less wear and tear on lawns & your machine.

Feeds a chipper better than ANY "bucket" style grapple "Once you feed a chipper with our grapple you'll never want to go back to a bucket style grapple"

Quick install trailer hitch to move your chipper, trailer, anything!
