    Default Compact Tractor Rake Grapple that does not need Aux Hydraulics to work

    I am wondering if there is a grapple rake for a under 50hp compact tractor that can open and close itself by using the tilt cylinders on the loader. I am just looking for something that can grapple brush without the need of the $900 hydraulic kit. Does anyone know of anything.

    Why not just use your rear remotes and lever? All you'd need are the hoses.

    Yes - we make a mechanical Brush Crusher (BC-3000) that will open and close of the tilt cylinders. They work great and were designed specifically for you limited hydraulic set up. VIDEO
