    If I were in your shoes, I would add the 3rd function now and shop for the best price on a grapple.

    To me this is sound advise.

    I agree, it is good advice. The 3rd function will be more seamless as original equipment but you will have better selection/pricing if you buy the grapple later. I assume you are getting the quick attach with the tractor? If not, I would suggest you do. Good luck.

    Get the grapple when you are ready but don't get it just because you are buying your tractor. Due to so many grapple options, make sure you know the differences and what fits your needs most. Unlikely the dealer has the perfect one sitting there with your name on it. Oh, I bet he does.
