    Default grapple not what they said !

    Ok , this is what happened, I bought a grapple on line and when it got here it wasn't what they said it was. They said it was made out of 1/2" T-1 steel . The weight of it is 600lbs.
    Well, when it showed up it was made out of 3/8" steel, if it's T-1 I have no idea .
    I called them up and asked about it , they said it was a mistake in the add and that they felt bad about it and would return $75 . That they don't make it in 1/2" only 3/8" .
    The thing is I like the way it's put together even though it still is 600lbs. What do you think about 3/8" instead of 1/2" I only have the kubota L3240 with the 724 loader so it's not really that big of a tractor . I spent $1,375 for it and can't spend anymore than that on one .
    So would you return it or not ? I don't want something I'm going to be bending up all the time. I've never used one but only once and wouldn't know if it would hold up. thanks!

    Several, all used and abused.

    Can you post pics or provide a link? How it's put together is just as important as the quality and size of the material.

    As for the refund, I would be very nervous about the rest of it if they lied about something that significant.

    Agree with Eddie on this, IF you can get your money back, run.

    I would guess the are in Memphis, TN...
    1/2" plate is pretty thick. Are the other grapples made of 1/2" plate? That would be a monster.

    Missed that. I went to the 'about us' link and nothing on that page gave a location. One would think that would be the place to put it.

    Most of the ones I've been looking at are 1/2".
    What I would like to know is how one made out of 3/8" holds up? anyone?
    It really does look like it was well built.
