Excavator and Backhoe Attachments


Empire Grapples are built to handle the ever-increasing demands of demolition and recycling. Our heavy duty design gives you a high amount of tooth overlap to compress your load, leaving behind dirt and small rocks.


Our thumbs are specifically designed to match your bucket tip radius and tooth spacing – accommodating your exact picking and sorting needs for almost any job. Available in hydraulic or stiff link models, pin mounted or under stick mounted.

Quick Couplers

Our quick couplers make changing your work tools a one-person operation. Ideal for applications that do not require attachments to be changed often, our coupler still eliminates the need to hammer the pins in and out. Its design allows your operators to make attachment changes quickly and safely in the field. Empire’s manual pin grabber coupler is a less expensive option to hydraulic pin grabbers.

Back Fill Blades

Heavy duty back fill blades are built to efficiently backfill and level using your excavator. The backfill blade will pin on or can be used with a quick coupler for easy installation.

Single Point Rippers

Rip into pavement, frozen soil, wire mesh, or concrete! Our ripper is powerful and rugged to fit your needs when blasting isn’t an option. Empire’s tough, durable single point ripper is a proven performer when scarifying frost or cutting wire mesh concrete.

Rock Hopper Box

Empire’s rock hopper box will help reduce congestion on your job site! Available in sizes ranging from 5 -16 cubic yards, these rock hoppers are built for rugged use with fully reinforced steel in all stress areas. The smooth bottom will allow easy picking of the bedding material. The extra thick bottom will stand up to years of use on the job.
