LBX Announces Link-Belt LSG Series and LCG Series Work Tools

LBX Company LLC, Lexington Kentucky announces Link-Belt® LSG Series Scrap Grapples and LCG Series Contractor Handling Grapples, designed for scrap handling, construction & demolition sorting, and bulk material handling.

LSG Series Work Tools

The Link-Belt Scrap Grapple is a low-maintenance, high-capacity orange peel grapple designed for high volume scrap yard processing. Available in four models, the LSG features:

  • Reverse-mounted cylinders protect rods from damage
  • Multiple tine and spade styles for all types of scrap material
  • All tine styles feature fully-boxed construction for strength and durability
  • Overall footprint easily fits inside trailers
  • A heavy-duty guarding system that completely protects cylinders and internal components yet is easily removed for maintenance
  • Identical hardened steel bearings with dust seals at all pivot points that protect against external debris
  • Large bore hydraulic cylinders for maximum clamping force
  • High-torque continuous 360-degree rotation
  • Abrasion-resistant steel tips that are easily replaced with a simple perimeter weld

LCG Series Work Tools

The LCG is available with perforated or heavy-duty ribbed tines that close at a very flat angle to assist in compacting material. Maximum crushing force densifies material while the strong rotation system resists back-driving forces. Available in three models, the LCG features:

  • Single cylinder with dual drag links minimizes the number of moving parts and simplifies the hydraulic system
  • Streamlined tine, frame and linkage design with easy-to-locate grease fittings simplifies maintenance
  • Oversized cylinder design incorporates rod protection, maximum crushing force to densify material, bolt-on gland cap for durability, and easy maintenance
  • Large recessed side covers provide easy access to internal components while protecting the cover fasteners

All LSG and LCG tools are covered by a full 1-year/1800-hour (whichever occurs first) Standard Limited Warranty; warranty will be honored on tools mounted on Link-Belt excavators only.
