The rake style from Titan has small lower teeth and it does not grab odd shaped logs well.
    Well that's not what I wanted to hear!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that is my experience. I am thinking of getting an L grapple or simply fixing up some "forks" that I can drop onto the grapple while trying to pick up large loads. Of course that lowers my payload. Having an opportunity o buy a C grapple over, I may have looked at the Wildkat Extreme. Anbo is so expensive, but they are nice.

    Yea I already started to look at the Titan root grapple it has the lower forks and two upper arms it shouldn't have any problem picking up anything. I really didn't don't like the idea of two separate upper arms because I don't want to lift heavy items (like a large rock) on one side or the other because that isn't good on a loader and they can bend, and they don't open all that far but I don't think that would be a problem or not much.
    Yea the anbo units are really nice altho they are really expensive I could justify getting both the rake and the root grapple and have it covered either way for about the same. Oh man I wish I hadn't just typed that now that is all I will think about!
