    I need to take it off and flip it up, and really get a good look at it to decide how I want to do it.

    I know I could weld it with the Mig I have here, its even a gas welder, so no flux core wire to worry about. I would just much prefer to do it over at a friends here he has a nice lincoln 220v mig... It works so much nicer than dads Century.

    Nice work but nothing a single lid grapple can't manage.

    If the EA grapple opens to 30", it looks like that tree is maybe 18" diameter? A 48" wide single lid would handle and hold that tree fine. Having said that, there is nothing wrong with a wide double lid grapple, it is just that not everyone needs one and they are't as good at digging roots.

    The 1/4" plates are welded on top of the lower brackets and create a solid contact with the locking pin. If they came loose, the pins would come in contact with the original bracket. Not likely since the force of the SSQA bracket keeps downward pressure on the spacers.

    I agree but it would make sense to weld the spacers as though the bottom spacer will handle the full load. It isn't the downward pressure but the backward pressure when pulling that pops the pins out.
