Diesel-hydraulic Orange Peel Grabs (DHS-B) by Orts GmbH Maschinenfabrik

Diesel hydraulic grab, fully radio controlled
Fully radio controlled diesel-hydraulic grabs are constructed and produced by ORTS GmbH since more than 20 years! A radio controlled diesel hydraulic grab is a crane attachment that is operated independently of power cables or hydraulic lines; it is completely self-sufficient and is operated via a radio control device by the crane driver or another person at the loading room. Thus, a radio controlled grab can be used on any crane, since an external power supply is not necessary. A diesel engine inside the grab provides the power to drive the hydraulic pump. The crane operator has to send command to move the buckets via a radio control. The way of control the movements of the buckets / clamshells is identical with an electro-hydraulic grab. They are fast, reliable and the better alternative solution comparing to mechanical single rope grabs!

About Orts GmbH Maschinenfabrik

Our grabs are the best link between ship and shore

The company was founded by Eng. Sigvard F. Orts in 1972 as an engineering and consulting company, specialised in constructions of grabs (main business) and nearly all kind of bulk handling equipment.

In the beginning there was only construction and sales. The manufacturing took place at well known companies in Northern Germany.

In 1985 an own workshop was founded and since that time it is the ORTS GmbH Maschinenfabrik.

The company is still family-owned.
