    Titanskidsteer,
    Can you answer the questions in the "grapple not what they said" thread? Please address the questions about the steel you use. I see you are monitoring tractorbynet.

    I agree.....you really should consider making some of these attachments for the John deere loader.

    I called them, and they did say that they're using T1 steel not only in the teeth but through out the grapple as well. Looks like a pretty good deal to me

    I purchased the 72" extreme duty grapple from Skidsteer Express last November. I didn't get to use it much because of the weather until about a month ago. After using it 4-5hrs a day the grapples started sticking in the up position & I would have to get off the machine & push them forward to get them to close. As I used it more it was obvious that the grapples were opening too far and bending the sheet metal on the grapples. I have emailed them about the problem & haven't gotten much of a response other than do you have access to a welder? I replied that I could get access & 3-4 days would go by without any reply. I would email them again & get the same response again. I have called at least 4 times & left my number for Bill to call me but no response. The last response I got was to an email asking if they had a solution & if they were going to do anything about the problem & the response was a picture that said if you will weld some triangle pieces here it will fix the problem.
    I don't think that I should have to start making parts & welding them on a new piece of equipment. If I wanted something to work on I would have bought a used grapple. I don't think it is unreasonable to expect Skidsteer Express/Titan to take care of this problem since the 1 year warranty is still in effect.

    I have seen the T1 listing on the two websites as well, but there have been enough questions about bent tines and adding support to make a person wonder if it is really T1. Titan also has a pattern of offering money back if you fix problems locally. While that sounds okay, it also makes a person wonder about the quality and design. I had not heard about the tines sticking up before but T1 steel should not be bending under normal operation. Timm250, what Skidsteer Express (Titan) model do you have, the 72" root grapple or the 72" rake grapple? Any abnormal use or just general grapple work?

    I have the root grapple and all that it has been used for is picking up and stacking brush on my farm. It isn't being used commercially.

    I see your picture now. Is it just the sheet metal that is bending or are the tines and/or frame bending? It sounds like they didn,'t install a stop or used different cylinders.

    The sheet metal is bending. You can see in the picture that the grapple rotates back too far when it is in the open position which has bent the sheet metal and causes it to bind up & not rotate forward when you try to close them. When this happens you have to get off & push them forward a couple of inches & they will close. Also sometimes when you push down on one of them to get them where they will close the other side will rotate open & it will stick in the open position & the other one that I had to push down will close.

    Think I'll just "sit tight" for a bit before ordering my pallet forks.

    Good morning Joe,

    We use T-1 steel on the teeth of the grapple. We also now have reinforcements on the lower teeth of the Rakes. See the video here: Case 1840 Skid Steer With Root Grapple Attachment - YouTube so you can see the lower teeth.

    We did have a mistake listing our 60" rake as 1/2" thick teeth where it has 3/8" thick teeth. The mistake has been fixed.

    Please let me know if we can answer any questions. If you are in the market for a grapple we would give you free residential delivery in return for a few photos of the unit in use.

    Have a great week.
