I like the pincher style much better than the bucket style.

Ours had a bad problem breaking off teeth. We fixed the broken teeth and welded on a 1/2x2" piece of flat stock all the way across the bars and back of the teeth. That fixed it up.

I bought a front hay spear for my 6115 last year from Titan. They also sell grapples. I know there’s a lot of difference between a grapple and a spear but the spear is built real well and at a good price. Probably can find some reviews on the Net.

Is there any problem with brush hanging up on that pipe when piling in piles?
just looking at it from someone that has used one to pile trees that I have sheared, it looks like it would be a problem with stuff falling through and hanging up when dumping ???? but maybe not.

Image Recommend going for the heaviest your tractor can handle.

once in a while a branch might get stuck but not very often, i'll just leave it and get another pile. I've used mine to clear a lot of brush.

You got took Fence that weak grapple won’t even crush a YETI :lol2: Fence you oughta send that pic to YETI. They might send you a spare. Been wanting a grapple for quite a while but it’s gonna have to wait a little longer. From the pic the grapple looks very well built :nod:

He’s carrying his beer! That’s too delicate an operation for a grapple.

On the same subject, does anyone make a grapple for 40hp tractors that’s light enough to actually be used? Neighbor has one, and he says it’s darn near useless because it’s so heavy
