    Default Source for fork mounted grapple.

    The kubota has the factory quick attach setup from 12 years ago. Today the skidsteer quick attach seems to be the standard. I use the forks much more than the bucket along with the carrier I had built long ago. I need a grapple. I have no interest in converting what I already have. I've looked at the bucket mounted units and they won't work for what I need. I recently found a fork mounted grapple which has the grapple pins set too low. One of those would work if the grapple was designed differently.

    Anyone know of a source for a fork mounted Google doesn't seem to be a friend in this case.

    That's the search I ran. Wick is talking a 7 week delivery. The Paumco setup has the grapple mounted too low. If you page through that search some euro source takes up pages, Anyone have a fork mounted grapple? Who made it?

    This is the one with the 7 week delivery. That doesn't help my "itch" fast enough.

    Have you looked at "The Thumb". It is designed to bolt to the top of a bucket, I am considering one to bolt on the top of my forks.
