    Default Re: Fair price on Long OBG2 64" grapple?

    This is Nelson at W. R. Long. The concern we have is if someone puts a small attachment on a larger tractor and tears it up then we have to ask the question was it the operator trying to do to much or was it the attachment being to light weight. I am very conservative when it comes to recommending the appropriate attachment to a particular loader. Actually the OBG2 48, 56, 64, and 72 are made with the same materials with the only real exception being the width and the 48 having only one grapple. I would like to let you know that we will warranty any of the OBG2's on your LA854, unless it is abused. Actually it is rare for someone to ask us to warranty any of our attachments due to something breaking or bending except sometimes the teeth on the RBG's break off since they are made of harden steel. If you have any questions you are always to call me.

    BTW we have some new attachments. You can see them at our website

    I have your OBG2 56" on my kubota MX5000/LA852 HD FEL. I'm more worried that my loader will break before I bend anything on the grapple.

    Quick update... The dealer finally installed the grapple after I had most of hurricane clean up completed.. I can say I am thrilled with the quality of the grapple. Very well built, fit and finish is top notch. The elec. over hyd. switch is great..

    It is noticably heavier than the bucket I am glad however I went with the 64" wide as I can look along the side fo the tractor and get a slight veiw of the angle and depth of the grapple while trying to pick objects up.

    Of course I am now wanting more FEL power the M59 is starting to really appeal to me.. if only it would to the wife...
