I've had my wildcat econo since June and I love it. Moved more logs and brush than I ever thought I would. I keep finding opportunities to use it. You know it's very good for stimulating airflow in compost piles. One small complaint I wish it opened further would make it easier to grab larger piles of brush..
As for the Wildkat price, website always said $900. call and you can deal with Anita.
Sep 28 - NEW!!! 48'' Root Grapple Bucket For Tractor/SkidSteer - $820 (Memphis, TN) farm & garden - by owner pic
This ad is on craigslist Little Rock, AR from someone in Memphis. There is a phone #, I am going to check them out when I get home from work next week. They have been advertising in our area for a while. Made out of 3/8" steel. Dont know much about it,but would like to check them out for my 4200. Memphis is only a few hrs away from the house. Thy charge a hundred dollars for ship to business adress. Just go to farm/garden Little Rock cl and search grapple. I just hope this is not a scam. LUTT
Their picture is lifted from Palletforks.com which has it listed for $920. Be careful it is craigslist.
I placed my order today for the 48" Wildkat grapple. I had it configured for the JD quick disconnect FEL and hydraulic connections for my set up. Yes it does have grease zirks on the moving parts. It will take a week or so to arrive on the west coast.
Zerks? Mine doesn't- Bought it around first of year-in any case I'm not worried about lack of fittings in my lifetime!
I like my Wild Kat grapple. It does not have grease fittings. When I bought in January it was by far the best value for me. Even if the top tube fails at some point I can have it fixed and still be money ahead. Now if there has been a major price increase it may no longer be the best value. After having a grapple I can give you one piece of advice any grapple is better than no grapple:)
