About Mack Manufacturing
Mack Manufacturing is a global leader in industrial material handling attachments, specializing in heavy-duty hydraulic grapples, grabs and buckets for overhead cranes and mobile equipment. Established in 1942, Mack continues to operate as a family-owned business committed to the development of highly-skilled welders, fabricators and support staff.
Mack's head office facility in Theodore, Alabama, is fully equipped to complete every step of attachment manufacturing and remanufacturing tasks under one roof, from engineering to precision machining to final finish.
At the recent ISRI conference and exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mack Manufacturing, a leading supplier of premium grade industrial grapples and buckets, introduced a new mag-grab as the latest addition to its product line for the scrap-handling industry.
When ASM Recycling Inc. made the bold move into the ferrous metals business, the South Alabama company didn’t have to look very far for a trusted grapple supplier. Not that ASM had previous experience with the premier material handling attachments made by Mack Manufacturing. Rather, the recycling firm had often been invited to bid on the copper wiring, brass shavings and other non-ferrous waste materials produced by the equipment manufacturer in nearby Theodore, Alabama.
Mack Manufacturing Inc. was in the forefront when diesel-powered crane buckets and grapples with remote controls first appeared in the material handling industry, according to the Alabama-based company. With the latest addition to its line-up of attachments, Mack set its sights on “small” with a series of self-contained remotely operated attachments ranging from as little as 3/8 cubic yard up to a 20 yard capacity.
With a lifting capacity of 1.75 cu. yd., Mack Manufacturing’s OPSIHCR-175-5 orange peel grapple is ideally sized for daily use in a wide range of scrap metal and recycling applications.
Mack Manufacturing developed the original five-tine orange peel grab to help scrap handlers and steel processors hold and retain larger loads more efficiently. The recently introduced OPSISCH-350-5 grapple model is a completely self-contained electric drive unit, ready for operation, and with a large, 3.5 yard capacity.
The Mack OPSIHCR-200-4 independent-tine scrap grapple is purpose-built for heavy-duty use on all types of hydraulic cranes and mobile scrap-handling equipment. This standard four-tine unit is designed for maximum load retention with a two-yard lifting capacity and continuous hydraulic rotation for ease of control.
