  1. Harry Hansen, U-Pick-It, AZ

    I have a few other pieces of equipment, but bye-golly, this SAS [EXTREME] grapple head really allows the operator to extract so much more copper. My other site with a larger excavator and a competing attachment just can’t do this. That unit pulls dashes, but still requires guys to manually cut the copper out. This SAS [EXTREME] is really the way to go!

  2. Billy, U-Pick-It, AZ

    The hold down [on the EXTREME] is really nice. All the teeth on the bottom certainly make sure the car doesn’t slide out when you are working on it. SAS has really been good in listening to my concerns and improving this design. The hydraulic hose connection point guards on the rotator grapple head are great.

    The SAS EXTREME Auto Processor grapple works great dismantling cars for scrap metal. In our scrap metal processing side of the business, the SAS EXTREME grapple works great for quickly breaking out compressor motors from refrigeration equipment and effortlessly breaking long cast iron pipe into short recyclable sections. We are very satisfied.

  7. Jason, M And J Auto Salvage

    We are using the SAS EXTREME, not just for car dismantling, but also to tear apart a metro bus. There’s a lot of copper in them. The shear didn’t do as good of a job. The SAS EXTREME works great!

  9. Cody, Stone Road Iron, PA

    This attachment [SAS EXTREME auto processor] is great for pulling and sorting out radiators, condensers, heater cores, copper wire harness, engine and transmissions … We get more money for our scrap metal.

    “I can’t believe the amount of wire the SAS EXTREME allows me to get out of the cars. It’s great!”

  11. Mike, Auto Recycler Facility, IN, USA

    The SAS EXTREME Auto Processor attachment is “exceeding our expectations!”

  12. Mike, Reeds Iron & Metal Recycling,Mo

    We just bought a new Sas Extreme attachment have not used it yet waiting on our company to deliver it in dec and will let you know how it works.
    We are giving it a 5 star right now and we will be back after we use it for 3 month’s use and rate it again.

    Komatsu PC220-LC fitted with SAS EXTREME Auto Processor allows us to process 50-60 cars per day.
    The SAS EXTREME Auto Processor is 1000% better than the former grapple we used.
    You (SAS FORKS) are the first ones we call!

    Been running the EXTREME for over 3 years, I really like it! I don’t know how I did this without the SAS EXTREME!

  15. Auto Recycler, IL, USA

    Auto Recycler, IL, USA
    The machine with the SAS Extreme proved to be a good investment and very good for my business.
    Formerly, I lost about 20 catalytic converters per week to the crusher, due to they were to difficult to retrieve, now with the SAS Extreme, we are able to recover those extra 20 cats per week!
    Not only do I earn more revenue from the extra cats, but also on copper recovery. We’ve doubled our copper recovery from the old way of pulling copper by hand to using the machine with the SAS Extreme Auto Processor. And one person can completely process the cars. We are processing about 40 cars per day with the SAS Extreme. We’ve been running SAS Scorpion engine pullers for 10 years. The SAS Scorpion performance has been impressive and SAS support very good. Adding the SAS Extreme takes recovery and revenue to the next level.

    This machine is great! Its a no brainer. We make money with this!

  17. John @ Weber Auto, Derry, NH

    We’ve done great with this SAS Extreme. Pulling wire out paid for itself! Also we can pull out hard to get catalytic converters and exhaust manifolds that have integrated cats! This has helped us alot!

    “This is awesome-stronger and faster than the last one!” I don’t think they are going to get me out of this seat!”
    [This is second machine Bessler’s purchased with the SAS EXTREME Auto Processor. The first was 4/2014. Bessler’s have had success over the last 7 years garnering added recycling revenue with the SAS EXTREME Auto Processor, and decided to invest in another one]

    New 8/2014. Comments 8/2021 After 7 years of operation:
    “It was a good decision to invest in the [SAS] EXTREME [Auto Processor]…”
    “We use it hard.”
    “This [SAS EXTREME Auto Processor] is a great deal for pulling harnesses [to extract copper from cars]…”
    “[The SAS EXTREME] comes in handy as a safety factor for us. It allows us to sort out materials and remove potentially undesirable materials from cars delivered to our facility before entering the shredder”
    “The machine and SAS EXTREME effortlessly sort through scrap dumped in piles from roll-off containers. Keeps our guys safe in the cab and we don’t need to sort by hand…”

    Great Reviews. Can’t wait to get my machine
    Mark has been a pleasure to deal with.

    I want my processor!

  21. [Anonymous], Auto Recycler, USA

    Once an operator is properly trained we average 35 lbs per vehicle at an average time of 6-8 min a vehicle. We can do closer to over 40lbs if we spend 10 minutes per car. That time also includes pulling only Eng/trans radiators and heater cores. We don’t go after axles, driveshafts and misc. aluminum.
