    I'm considering rock bucket/ grapple option and have been following this thread too.

    Matt, since we both have 3320's, can you explain why you feel the rock bucket is tough on the loader?

    Thanks,

    Sure, as Steve mentioned you have to really shake the bucket to get the dirt to sift through the tines. Rock buckets stick out fron the tractor quite a ways so it shake's the entire tractor pretty good. Since the loaders on 3000 series are detachable there's alot of movement on the entire loader.

    Your also adding some shock load to the hydralic system with a full bucket of rocks. If all I had was the rock bucket I'd probably think it was the cats meow. The tine spacing on mine is 2" so I get alot of rocks with it, I also have alot if -1" gravel in my soil. So the harley rake just works better for me.
