    Default GRAPPLES FROM PALLETFORKS.COM

    Hi guys. I'm in the market for a grapple. palletforks.com has some reasonable prices, but I've seen some posts with issues that concern me. One post was an issue with the skid steer "quick attach" and the other had to do with one of the cylinders not closing the top portion of the grapple. I wonder if these are cheap Chinese stuff? You know... they say if it's too good to be true (price), it usually isn't. I'm impressed with the products at EverythingAttachments.com, but the price is sooo much higher. I may just break down and buy the more expensive one for peace of mind. Any thoughts?

    When I upgrade my grapple, I will likely get it from: Skid Steer Attachments | Skid Steer Loader Attachments |

    They seem to have very high quality stuff and those who have their equipment seem to like it. Can't tell you anything about the others though.

    I just ordered a 48" root grapple from them, expecting it to arrive in the next couple of days so I'll have to post later how it works. I have read some negative comments on the forum but I believe PF has corrected them. Their ad does say "made in the USA."

    I got a grapple from WildKat Attachments and am very happy with it. I got the economy 48" model and it is working out great. I had a problem with the first one I got and they replaced it and I had the new one the next day. Their service is great.

    Hey Bud, I'm curious to know what you think about the 48" when you get to working with it. Thanks.

    Does your 48" have the skid steer quick attach? The web site does not say.

    OK I'll keep you in mind. It might take a few days to get it plumbed, I'm waiting to get it mounted and then take some measurements for the hoses. Supposed to be here today and I will bring it home from the business address I gave, but I'm swamped the next few days thru the weekend with some obligations.

    Thanks Bud. Will you be using a 3rd function valve connection or will you be connecting to your rear remotes?

    Yes, you can get it with the SSQA. You have to specify how you want it when you order. I got mine without the hyd couplers as I had to put 3/8 AG couplers on it. The work I have done with it so far is great. I use it with the 3rd function valve..I have no complaints.

    Thanks Tom. That 48" WIldcat looks like it's built well. I'll be calling Wildcat for more information. Thanks again.
