    An 860 lb. grapple sounds awfully heavy for a 45 hp tractor, but if you're happy with it, that's all that matters.

    Might be a bit heavy for my tractor which is a 45 horse as well but it seems to be working for you and that is what counts. I think my max loader lift is 2000 lbs but you have to remove all the weight of the implements and such, much like the payload of a pickup truck you have to remove the weight of tools, hitch and passengers from the payload, go figure.

    No it's not too heavy at all.The Web site says 780 Lbs, The invoices says 880 Lbs. It could be a typo. It didn't fail too lift any thing that I tried it on including some pretty large trees that I thought might be trouble. My lift is close to 2900 Lbs. I accidentally hit some large rock in the ground harder than when I bent my Woods box blade shanks completely under. Thought for sure I messed up the grapple but I couldn't tell I hit anything. I would have hated to have to take it to a welding shop after the first day. So I'm glad I chose the heavier grapple. For my use I 'm extremely pleased with it.

    Anbo also makes a 72 that is 370 Lbs that could be a better fit.

    As long as your are a satisfied customer, that's what counts.

    Suggest you have adequate counter weight at all times.

    Thanks! I'll have to look into getting one. That price isn't as high as I was expecting.
