    pictures?

    On the side... what happened to JCWhitney? I've tried every link I have and several from the web, no luck. Did US Auto Parts do away with them?

    by far the heaviest thing I have moved.

    This is a 72 inch rakemaster, it is brutally tough.
    Depending on your soil type you can scarify a foot deep and its weight is a benefit you just have to learn how to use it to your advantage.
    Dealing with Mr Lynn personally was a pleasure and He stands behind his product.
    If you have around 50 horsepower, a lift capacity of around 3000lbs this is the way to go.
    L shaped grapples put too much load way out in front of your loader pins which demishes your lift capacity. Also the L shape design lends itself more to light duty brush/trash cleaning than actually doing ground penetration rough land clean up.

    Funny I actually prefer the L shaped grapple for digging out trees and root systems, It allows the tines to get under the roots and break them. It also works good for lifting concrete pads.-tractor-001-jpg-tractor-002-jpg It will break them up when you get underneath them. I am good friends with the local rental company and they let me use their rake style grapple and it works better at brush gathering and picking stuff up but I prefer the L for digging. CJ

    Is that a 4' grapple and if you don't mine who is the Manufacturer.

    Which One do you want to know about?

    Default Re: New Grapple exceeds expectations

    If any of you are interested, we are offering the one and only prototype 66" Wicked grapple for sale to a TBN member for the price of $700 plus freight. This is below cost but he is willing to let it go to a member that will provide us with feedback on TBN. It will be shipped to you just like it is shown in the video so check out the video to see the differences in the prototype and the final product. If interested, just PM me and leave a number that I can contact you at. This is first come, first serve. I posted this offer on a couple of our other threads so you may have already seen it.
    The senders of PMs will be contacted in the order that they are received by us and the first person that pays will get this prototype grapple.

    Here is the video:

    Not sure about the size, but it looks like one of the Titan grapples.
