    Default root rake/grapple choice ??

    im looking to put a root rake on my john deere ct332 track loader, what do you guys think of the bradco and the quick attach eagle talon??

    any other brands out there that are proven winners?

    im thinking im going to go with a 72'', the 84'' tends to be a grand more and i dont see it being any more productive.

    any opinions appreciated im going to get one before friday.

    Another choice to look into is the BoDozer from Borford Mfg. Well built heavy duty.

    Quick Attach "Talon" , simply awsome for general cleanups but if your wanting to remove roots below the surface i'd go with the Quick Attach "Quick Claw" as the angle of the tynes on the "Talon" make it want to dig in at any oppertunity which makes the machine nose dive and dig ruts and can also overcome the relief valve in the control bank and make the grapple crowd under . The shorter vertical tynes of the "Quick Claw" would not have the same trouble .
