Flip and nest seed boxes easily
Does storing pro boxes make you cringe? Make it easier, faster and painless with the Grappler 450 box flipper and seed box nesting system. Some existing flippers attach to your forklift. This one is independent, so you don’t tie up your forklift when you’re not finished storing boxes but need it for something else. Lower the bottom half of the box with a forklift. Then watch the Grappler rotate the top half and raise up the bottom half to nest it. The system uses compressed air. List price is $2,950.
