    Default Picked up my new grapple

    I picked up my new Wildkat grapple on Friday. I plan on running lines from my rear remotes to operate it. I can't wait to try it out. It seems to be well built. Here are some pics of it before I put it away.

    buck12, it is a skid steer quick attach (ssqa), not a pin on.

    murphy1244, it was $549 without the skid steer quick attach couplings. I'm going to use pioneer couplings. then you also have to pay shipping..... mine was $177. Total was $726.


    I forgot to mention in my first post that I wanted to thank all the people of TBN for providing me with all of the info needed to research grapples and make my decision.

    Thanks guys!

    Given the research I have done the wild Kat grapple is a great price with good TBN comments. My problem is I don't have the skid steer quick attach setup.

    That's a nice looking grapple! Let me warn you however. Build a grill guard or protector for the front of your tractor. If you use your grapple like I do mine, it's common for limbs to damage your grill and lights. I found this out the hard way!!

    The problem with a grapple is that it gives me a "bulldozer" mentality where I think I can knock down anything and wade into piles of debris like a madman simply because it works so well. It's hard to see what can protrude through the back of the grapple and cause damage. Protect your front side!
