    Just my
    My opinion, exactly and entirely.

    I got a 6' Gannon and am very pleased. Weight is important. Weight is important. Weight is important. The dealer came down 20percent from his asking price. Search for a used one. kubota boxes are very similar.

    A hyd top link is useful. Tilt is less important. Two remotes work well, one for top link, one for hydraulic scarifiers.
    The Gannon also work well for popping out sapling. I back into them at ground level, raise the 3pt, and they pop out.

    This is a most useful attachment. A used Gannon would perform better than a new lighter model.

    Best regards,
