    Default Has anyone used Unlimited Fabrications?

    They have a nice log grapple for my CK 35 Kioti QA for $1300. They look reputable an the price is good. I want a single piston fork grapple for limbs and brush. Has anyone heard of em?

    I have one of their root grapples and a set of loader forks. No complaints from me. I have had them for 8 years.

    My parts were will called. I had another shipment coming my way from another source, so they picked them up for me.
    So, to answer your question, no I did not pay them shipping.

    I have not seen Unlimited Fabrications mentioned often on TBN, are you pleased (if you have received it) with your grapple? They are located relatively near me and I like the look of their HD Root Grapple.

    Thanks.

    I don't think that they build one small or light enough for most of the TBNers. I have been happy with my HD unit, but then I have 3900lb full height lift capacity.

    Brian,

    Thanks for your reply. Your 7520 has 25 more hp than my 340B and can surely handle almost anything! Am I correct that you have the Extreme Root Grapple? I am interested in their Heavy Root Rake and have some questions about its specs that are not answered on their web site. I have emailed Roger at Unlimited regarding fabrication of a Skid Steer Conversion unit and am going to call him today regarding the conversion and grapple.

    I started a thread titled "Quick Attach and Grapple for Industrial Tractor?" and you and your company were named by member Piston as a possible source for the hydraulics upgrade needed for my conversion. Do you offer what I will need?

    Thanks!

    Actually they did not offer the Extreme Root Grapple 8+ years ago. Mine is the HD unit. I have diverter valves, but I can not match that $300 that was mentioned. I can get you my econo setup for about $400, normal system is $500. The only difference is that the valve is a bit rougher looking and not painted or plated. Not as refined of a finish as most of the diverters you see. This would be everything other than however you decide to mount it. You mount it, get me hose lengths and I get you hoses that fit your tractor.

    Would you post on TBN or send by PM photos of the two systems you have. Would a diverter system work with my tractor's 21.5 gpm hydraulic flow rate?

    Skid Steer Conversion - No specs stated, will take about three weeks to fabricate. This one is about $225.00 less than a similar unit offered by another nearby fabricator.

    Please let me know if this is built like your HD Grapple. I am a little concerned that the square tubes are 3" rather than 4".
