9/5/17
Look For The Safety Alert Symbol
!
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control, and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance, and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of
Signal Words
A Signal word designates a degree or
level of hazard seriousness. The
signal words are:
! DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, will result in death or
serious injury. This signal word is to be
limited to the most extreme situations.
Safety Precautions for
Children
Tragedy can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence of
children. Children generally are
attracted to attachments and their
work.
 Never assume children will remain
where you last saw them.
 Keep children out of the work area
and under the watchful eye of a
responsible adult.
 Be alert and shut the attachment
and tractor down if children enter
the work area.
 Never carry children on the tractor
or attachment. There is not a safe
place for them to ride. They may
fall off and be run over or interfere
with the control of the power
machine.
 Never allow children to operate the
power machine, even under adult
supervision.
 Never allow children to play on the
power machine or attachment.
 Use extra caution when backing
up. Before the tractor starts to
move, look down and behind to
make sure the area is clear.
! WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, could result in death or
serious injury.
! CAUTION
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, could result in minor or
moderate injury.
Tractor Shutdown & Storage
 If engaged, disengage power
take-off.
 Park on solid, level ground and
lower attachment to ground or
onto support blocks.
 Put tractor in park or set park
brake, turn off engine, and remove
switch key to prevent unauthorized
starting.
 Relieve all hydraulic pressure to
auxiliary hydraulic lines.
 Wait for all components to stop
before leaving operator’s seat.
 Use steps, grab-handles and
skid-resistant surfaces when
getting on and off the tractor.
 Detach and store attachment in an
area where children normally do
not play. Secure attachment using
blocks and supports.

Important Safety Information
These are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products described in
this manual.
Dig Safe - Avoid
Underground Utilities
 USA: Call 811
CAN: digsafecanada.ca
Always contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone,
gas, water, sewer, and others)
before digging so that they may
mark the location of any
underground services in the area.
 Be sure to ask how close you can
work to the marks they positioned.
2
Transport Safely
 Comply with state and local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any overhead
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep inclines with heavy end of a
tractor with loader attachment on
the “uphill” side.
 Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
Use A Safety Chain
Practice Safe Maintenance
 A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
 Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
implement.
 Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
 Always hitch the implement to the
machine towing it. Do not use the
safety chain tow the implement.
 Understand procedure before doing
work. Refer to the Operator’s Manual
for additional information.
 Work on a level surface in a clean
dry area that is well-lit.
 Lower attachment to the ground and
follow all shutdown procedures
before leaving the operator’s seat to
perform maintenance.
 Do not work under any hydraulic
supported equipment. It can settle,
suddenly leak down, or be lowered
accidentally. If it is necessary to work
under the equipment, securely
support it with stands or suitable
blocking beforehand.
 Use properly grounded electrical
outlets and tools.
 Use correct tools and equipment for
the job that are in good condition.
 Maximum transport speed for an
attached equipment is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
 As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
attached equipment:
20 mph when weight of attached
equipment is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the equipment.
10 mph when weight of attached
equipment exceeds weight of
machine towing equipment but
not more than double the weight.
 IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the vehicle towing the load.
 Allow equipment to cool before
working on it.
 Disconnect battery ground cable (-)
before servicing or adjusting
electrical systems or before welding
on equipment.
 Do not grease or oil attachment
while it is in operation.
 Inspect all parts. Make certain parts
are in good condition & installed
properly.
 Understand attachment with genuine
Land Pride parts only. Do not alter
this attachment in a way which will
adversely affect its performance.
 Remove buildup of grease, oil, or
debris.
 Remove all tools and unused parts
from equipment before operation.

Important Safety Information
These are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products described in
this manual.
Prepare for Emergencies
 Be prepared if a fire starts.
 Keep a first aid kit and fire
extinguisher handy.
 Keep emergency numbers for
doctor, ambulance, hospital, and
fire department near phone.
Wear
Protective Equipment
Avoid High
Pressure Fluids Hazard
 Wear protective clothing and
equipment appropriate for the job
such as safety shoes, safety
glasses, hard hat, and ear plugs.
 Clothing should fit snug without
fringes and pull strings to avoid
entanglement with moving parts.
 Prolonged exposure to loud noise
can cause hearing impairment or
hearing loss. Wear suitable
hearing protection such as
earmuffs or earplugs.
 Operating equipment safely
requires the operator’s full
attention. Avoid wearing
headphones while operating
equipment.
 Escaping fluid under pressure can
penetrate the skin causing serious
injury.
 Relieve all residual pressure
before disconnecting hydraulic
lines or performing work on the
hydraulic system.
 Make sure all hydraulic fluid
connections are tight and all
hydraulic hoses and lines are in
good condition before applying
pressure to the system.
 Use a piece of paper or
cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to
check for suspected leaks.
 Wear protective gloves and safety
glasses or goggles when working
with hydraulic systems.
 DO NOT DELAY. If an accident
occurs, see a doctor familiar with
this type of injury immediately. Any
fluid injected into the skin or eyes
must be treated within
a few hours or
gangrene may
result.
Use Seat Belt and ROPS
Keep Riders Off
Machinery
911
Use Safety
Lights and Devices
 Slow moving tractors, and
self-propelled equipment can
create a hazard when driven on
public roads. They are difficult to
see, especially at night. Use the
Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign
when on public roads.
 Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
9/5/17
 Land Pride recommends the use
of a CAB or roll-over-protectivestructures (ROPS) and seat belt
in almost all power machines.
Combination of a CAB or ROPS
and seat belt will reduce the risk
of serious injury or death if the
power machine should be upset.
 If ROPS is in the locked-up
position, fasten seat belt snugly
and securely to help protect
against serious injury or death
from falling and machine overturn.
 Never carry riders or use tractor
to lift or transport individuals.
 There is not a safe place for a
person to ride.
 Riders obstruct operator’s view
and interfere with the control of
the power machine.
 Riders can be struck by objects or
thrown from the equipment.

upper jaw or getting on and off the power machine with
loader arms not fully down can cause in a crushing hazard
due to accidental movement of control levers or loss of
hydraulic pressure.
•
Store attachment with hydraulic cylinders fully retracted,
upper claw fully open, and upper and lower teeth pointing
down resting on the ground. The attachment can tip-over if
stored in the upright position.
•
Lightweight power machines may need weights added to
the rear to maintain steering control and prevent tipping.
Consult your power machine Operator’s Manual to
determine proper weight requirements and maximum weight
limitations.
•
Wear eye protection when operating a power machine
without an enclosure or protective shield. Dust and debris
can get into the eyes.
•
Do not force solid objects in between teeth while closing
upper jaw against lower jaw.
•
Always secure equipment with solid supports before
working under it. Never work under equipment supported
by concrete blocks or hydraulics. Concrete blocks can
break, hydraulic lines can burst, and/or hydraulic controls
can be actuated even when power to hydraulics is off.
•
Do not let children play on or around the attachment
including when stored. Children and/or attachment can fall.
!
WARNING
To prevent serious injury or death:
A Crushing hazards always exists around attachments. The
jaws can crush and objects in the attachment can shift and
fall.
• Do not drive up to anyone or an animal in front of a fixed
object such as a wall or bench. Never assume that the
power machine can be stopped in time.
12
SGC1060 & SGC1072 Grapples 380-092M
• Do not lift loads that cannot be contained or have objects
smaller than the openings in the attachment.
• Keep bystanders, pets, and livestock away from your work
area. Never allow anyone to go near or under the
attachment and/or its load.
• Keep load centered, even when stopped. This will optimize
load stability and protect against load shifting.
• Keep load positioned forward enough to prevent accidental
spillage on operator and power machine.
• Keep load slightly tilted back to secure its weight against
the hitch frame. Rotating top of hitch frame back too far can
cause load to shift and fall. Rotating top of hitch frame
forward too far can cause load to shift forward and fall.
• Make sure all objects are contained before lifting. Do not
lift a load that cannot be contained in the attachment as the
load can shift and fall.
• Use a “spotter” when it is hard to see in the direction you
are traveling and when placing a load that obstructs your
vision. A person or animal could be nearby in a blind spot.
• When equipped, sound the horn before traveling in reverse.
Drive at a slower speed to compensate for blind spots.

Picking-Up A Load
! WARNING
To prevent serious injury or death:
•
•
•
Use a power machine of adequate size for the load being
carried. A power machine that is too small can tip over
when loader arms are raised due to high center of gravity.
Keep bystanders at a safe distance when entering and
picking up a load. Objects can shift or be thrown suddenly
as the attachment makes contact with load causing serious
injury or death.
Be sure to read and understand all safety alerts
under “Operating Safety” on page 11.

General Operating Instructions
By now you should have familiarized yourself with the
Operator’s Manual for your Claw Grapple. If you haven’t,
please do so now. Proceed by getting onto the seat of
your tractor and starting it up. It isn’t going to take you
long to learn how to use your new Land Pride Claw
Grapple, but we do recommend that you take a little time
to practice securely attaching and detaching your grapple
to and from your mounting plate. It is also important to
practice lifting, lowering, maneuvering, and placing a load
until you gain the confidence and skill needed to have a
good feel in what you are doing. We cannot overstress
the importance of following the safety information and
operating procedures that are spelled out in this
Operator’s Manual.
As you quickly become more skilled and adept in using
your Claw Grapple, you will soon learn that it is always
more important to focus on the “don’ts” than it is to focus
on the “dos”. For example, don’t exceed the lift capacity of
your grapple or tractor. Don’t lift your load too high
creating an unstable load and unsafe situation. Don’t tilt
your load too far backwards, setting up a situation that
could cause your load to roll or spill backwards onto you,
the tractor, and the operator’s platform. Don’t drive too
fast for your ground and load conditions. Don’t work on or
around slippery or sloped areas that could cause you to
lose control of the tractor. Don’t allow pedestrians, pets,
or livestock to approach the danger zone of your working
area. Always close grapple upper claw and lower grapple
until resting on the ground before leaving your tractor.
If you just follow these few safety reminders, you will find
that you will quickly become very adept, handy, and
skillful at using your Land Pride Claw Grapple.
See “Specifications & Capacities” on page 17 and
“Features & Benefits” on page 18 of your Operator’s
Manual for additional information.

dirt and then wash its surface thoroughly with a
garden hose.
2. Inspect grapple for loose, damaged, or worn parts
and adjust or replace when needed.
3. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your Land Pride dealer for aerosol
touch-up paint. They are also available in touch-up
bottles with brush, quarts, and gallon sizes by adding
TU, QT, or GL to the end of the aerosol part number.

4. Replace all damaged or missing guards & decals.
5. Lubricate as noted in “Lubrication Points” starting
on page 16.
6. Store grapple on a level surface in a clean, dry place.
Inside storage will reduce maintenance and make for
a longer grapple life.
7.
Do not allow children to play on or around the stored
grapple.
Do not alter attachment or replace parts on the attachment
with other brands. Other brands may not fit properly or
meet OEM specifications. They can weaken the integrity
and impair the safety, function, performance, and life of the
attachment. Replace parts only with genuine OEM parts.
Tractor Maintenance
One of the most important things you can do to prevent
hydraulic system problems is to ensure your tractor
hydraulic reservoir remains free of dirt and
contamination.
Use a clean cloth to wipe hose ends before attaching
them to your tractor. Replace your tractor’s hydraulic filter
element at the prescribed intervals. These simple
maintenances will go a long way to prevent occurrence of
control valve and hydraulic cylinder problems.
