Norm Engineering grabs: Continuing a tradition of excellence


The Norm Engineering Hydraulic Rock Grabs stand out as a testament to the company’s enduring commitment to innovation, quality, and understanding of the harsh Aussie environment.

More than 39 years ago, the Australian earthmoving industry was forever changed by the inception of Norm Engineering.

Born from the vision and ingenuity of Wally Acimovic and later propelled by his son-in- law, Norm Pesch, Norm Engineering has grown from crafting a single, perfected bucket to developing an expansive array of rugged earthmoving attachments.

Among the distinguished line-up, the Hydraulic Rock Grabs remain at the forefront of the company’s offerings, showcasing the company’s commitment to enhancing the efficiency and capability of earthmoving operations.

Designed with precision and built for durability, the rock grabs come equipped with a complete hydraulic system, including hoses and couplings, ensuring they are ready for immediate use upon delivery.

This feature highlights Norm Engineering’s understanding of the importance of convenience and efficiency in the fast-paced construction and agriculture sectors.

Norm Engineering offers the Hydraulic Rock Grabs in two configurations to cater to a broad spectrum of machinery and operational requirements.

The dual cylinder model is designed for use with machines ranging from 5 to 25 tonnes, providing robust performance for larger projects. In contrast, the single cylinder version is optimised for machines up to four tonnes, offering an ideal blend of power and precision for smaller tasks.

This versatility ensures that Norm Engineering’s solutions can meet the diverse needs of their clientele, regardless of the scale of their projects.

A key feature of the Hydraulic Rock Grabs is the protective enclosure for the cylinders. This thoughtful design protects the hydraulic components from damage during operation, extending the lifespan of the attachment and ensuring consistent reliability.

Additionally, the rock grabs are equipped with serrated edges and wide opening jaws, enhancing their functionality for a variety of tasks such as site clearing, demolition, and landscaping.

These features allow for the secure handling and precise placement of materials, further showcasing Norm Engineering’s commitment to providing high-quality, efficient solutions.
