  • Grab arm function picks up pipe and holds it firmly to attachment.

  • Integrated Safety: Load control valve system ensures pipe is never dropped, regardless of hydraulic pressure.

Easy Installation

  2. Quick couple the three auxiliary hydraulic hoses (pressure, return and dedicated case drain hoses) to the excavator's auxiliary circuit.
  3. Replace the excavator's control handles with the provided control handles. This is done by simply unscrewing the manufacturer's control handles and screwing on the DECKHAND's control handles.
