Anvil supplies grapples and buckets in hydraulic, electro-hydraulic, diesel-hydraulic, and traditional cable operation. New units, repairing & servicing older units and supplying parts is all part of what we do. We will even re-engineer your off-brand bucket for greater performance.
Anvil is the only US manufacturer of clamshell buckets that has passed a 2 year testing program of the US government for quality and strength. Don't sell yourself short. See why Anvil Buckets are built to last.
Over its history, Anvil and its brands has the unique distinction of building the following clamshell buckets and grapples which are considered to be the largest of their type to have ever been built:
- Largest clamshell bucket: 77 cubic yards
- Largest electro-hydraulic scrap grapple: 20 cubic yards
- Largest hydraulic scrap grapple: 7 cubic yards
- Largest electro-hydraulic refuse grapple: 14 cubic yards

These accomplishments symbolize Anvil's design and manufacturing capabilities and represent the company's 'can-do' attitude when industry has had unique requirements.
Anvil Attachments - Cable and Hydraulic Clamshell Buckets and Grapples
Anvil Attachments is an award winning manufacturer of bulk material handling attachments. We offer the most diverse product line in the industry, including hydraulic and cable clamshell buckets and hydraulic and cable grapples.
Anvil recently won the 2015 IBJ award for best grab and is the preferred grab manufacturer for many of the leading crane manufacturers.
Anvil utilizes state of the art FEA design on all of our clamshell buckets and grapples which allows us to design grabs with the precise weight to strength ratio for the material handled. Anvil practices LEAN manufacturing on all of our products which reduces cost and improves quality.
Anvil is best known for our service after the sale as we stand by the quality of every bucket and grapple we produce.
Here are a few of the reason's Anvil Attachments is the premier bucket and grapple manufacturer in the material handling industry.
Anvil has the fastest lead times in the industry. Anvil designs all of its buckets and grapples around a concept of standard parts. Components are designed around product families. This system allows Anvil to keep virtually every part and component in stock. A grapple typically ships in 1-2 weeks from the time of order, a bucket in 2-3 weeks. Most parts are shipped out either the same day or the next day from the time of order.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Every part in every bucket and grapple is rigorously tested in a state of the art Finite Element Analysis (FEA) computer program. This FEA software tests stresses and finds weak areas in design before any piece of steel is cut. It also identifies and helps eliminate unnecessary weight. Anvil combines this technology with over 100 years of design and knowledge for the best designed, most reliable grabs in the market.
Anvil is consistently on the forefront of bucket and grapple design and innovation. This is demonstrated through the patents which have been awarded to us. An example of this innovation is our patented cluster sheaves, which increases cable life for customers up to 3 times on cable grabs. Anvil currently has two new innovative patents pending.
This patent is on the improvement of the Fairlead design used in most cable buckets and grapples today. This design has increased cable life for Anvil customers up to 3 times over standard configurations, saving customers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“Anvil has been able to double our cable life resulting in savings of over $125,000.00 per year on the cable alone.” – Darryl S., Chevron
Sealed Lip - Patent Pending
Anvil currently has a Patent Pending on an improved bolt on sealed lip design.
Grab Management Application - Patent Pending
Anvil currently has a Patent Pending on a Grab Management application. This application will allow customers to remotely monitor and manage thier bucket or grapple. This application will monitor vital statistics of the grab and alert the user if any critical situation arises.
Anvil practices LEAN manufacturing throughout its organization. LEAN improves efficiencies and reduces waste in the manufacturing process. LEAN reduces cost and improves quality in every product.
Anvil Attachments is located about 20 minutes north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This facility is where every bucket and grapple is designed; where every piece of steel is cut, bent, fitted, welded, assembled and tested. Every product from Anvil Attachments is entirely “MADE IN THE USA”.
