    Your grapple should be no wider then your front tires. This is good sound advice on compact tractors. Keep it light but strong.

    Check out Ambo grapples they are a little more expensive but are the caddy of grapples. Super lite and super strong.

    I think that will be an excellent fit for your tractor/loader.

    Almost bought that grapple before I picked up the one I have now. It will be a good fit on the 400cx

    I also bought a 64" WR Long open bottom grapple. It stays on my tractor all the time. I use it for moving logs, limbs, debris, and digging up small roots and vines. It's not so great at digging up stumps of any larger size. The width works against you in that case. It does work great for pushing over small (6" to 8") trees. After pushing them over, you can dig up the stump and haul the whole mess off. I do like having two arms. Uneven sized objects are easy to grab, and as stated earlier, hauling firewood is a breeze. I use it more than I expected while mowing around fields. If I find a limb or dead tree fallen in the edge of the path or field, I scoop it up and mow right over the spot where it was.

    The bucket I have now is 72", with teeth. Works very well, for what I've have used it for so far.

    From Nelson Long (member on here) at WR LONG INC W.R.Long the 4N1 Bucket People
    Telephone (252) 823-4570
    FAX (252) 823-4577
    Location 1607 Cedar Street, P.O. Box 460 - Tarboro, NC 27886
    E-mail "webmaster@wrlonginc.com"

    Give them a call or email, he is very good with customer service (especially AFTER you make the purchase)

    I honestly can't recommend them enough.

    You can't buy directly through him, as you have to go through the dealer network, however, just about any tractor dealership can be a dealer.

    Dealer Locator (dealer locator)

    You can also buy from EverythingAttachments.com they stock them and have them on the webpage, prices included for reference.

    Rockgod and Piston, thanks for the encouragement on the grapple I purchased. I know in a few weeks, I will have a better feel for how this new implement performs. I've moved 85 Cu Yards of rock so far with the bucket. Now comes the Boulders. 3-4 of the boulders are very large, so I may end up skidding some in close to where I need them, then giving them a little curl/push with the bucket. Also, with this new equipment, the two piles of logs and brush, that have taken about 1/2 an acre away from my planted field can be moved quickly, after I cut the log sizes down.

    I did have my dealer install the 3rd function kit. I just do not have the time, with work, and the projects that need to be finished. It was not cheap, but the work looks very good. (I'll post some pics of their work) Thanks again for you guys on this forum. I originally only had a drawbar and clevis between my 3pt arms, to claim as my implements. This forum helped me correctly choose those implements I now own, which have increased my ability to finish projects faster, correctly, and safer.
