    Another example of why used equipment is often not a bargain.

    I watched Ted's testing part 1 and part 2 videos from the other thread. Sorry Ted...It was hard for me to watch...I clenched my teeth more than once...

    The worst part is that "Ted" sees himself as some sort of hero.

    I'm glad you guys watched the video and made some good observations. They didn't go out and position the trailer in the best place or have a script to follow that made sure conditions made the grapple and the tractor pilot look "perfect". These were real world conditions.....no heavy editing or sugar coating.
    If I were buying one, that's how i'd want it depicted.

    Hey guys... have you considered adapting your "HD" wicked root grapple (60" & up) with a single lid, instead of a dual? I would imagine that it would cut the cost a bit, and at least that way I could still buy one of your grapples. I'd also imagine that it wouldn't take much effort to adapt it as such

    Most things you pick up are not the same size due to branches, tapering, etc. The dual clamps adapt to the variations. A single clamp would make it harder to get a good grip.

    A single narrow clamp would not hold well. A single wide one would tend to twist easily when picking up material of varying diameter.

    I asked Ted and he isn't going to make this one any heavier. He said that the cylinder mounts are gusseted and chances are it'll be fine for you. He said if something were to happen with regards to material or workmanship, he'll warranty it, but not if it's bent because of misuse.

    johnnyvol just received his single lid grapple that he'll use on his L4060 cab tractor. He is going to post pics and feedback soon. Hopefully that'll help with your decision.

    Ooof, that was horrid abuse on that poor tree (and the tractor/grapple). I hope you were planning/needed to take that tree all the way down, and weren't just ripping branches off for fun to test the grapple.....

    I find it sort of curious that you posted this video though. "hey look, our grapple holds up just fine to intense abuse from incorrect operation.... but, please, don't ever do this".

    Ted doesn't mind being called a redneck and that's probably a fairly accurate statement. It's just him on the show without the family.....unless that's Peanut.....hmmmmmmm
    That could work!
