    Default New Grapple exceeds expectations

    I just received my new Anbo GRS 72 Grapple last Thursday and took it to the farm to clean up some trees to make bush hogging a little easier. I must say it's built like a tank. Ran into a solid rock that practically stalled my L45. I got off real quick expecting to see several bent tines and to my amazement there was hardly a scratch. Moved a lot of downed trees, uprooted several and even found a new use trimming some pine trees that had grown close together making it impossible to mow between. Spent around 2 and a half days total. Like many of TBN grapple users, I love my new Grapple!!!-img_1041-jpg-img_1079-jpg-img_1082-jpg-img_1097-jpg

    Looks great! If you're anything like the rest of us, you'll keep finding new uses for your grapple to the point you'll soon wonder how you ever got along without it. Congrats on your purchase!

    Thanks, the tree trimming didn't even cross my mind.

    Nice attachment. I also considered the anbo in a recent grapple purchase.
