    Actually, the original design was going to have 3.

    I went single with the idea I could add the others if needed. Also to save a little weight.

    After some abuse, I mean use, I find it works great with the single arm no problem.

    That is uniquely cool Will. Great idea.
    I too would add a second arm to the jaw only for secure stuff that might rock around when grabbed at only one point. I don't think it's needed for brush though. But more for large rocks and maybe even logs?

    Don't blame me, it was JJ's grapple pic that got me thinking in that design direction.

    Big logs have been no problem beings I have to grab almost dead center anyway. Don't take much to 'upset' my 790.

    The rocks go one at a time.
