    Default How NOT to use a Root Grapple!!

    Here are some things that were done while testing our new 50" Single Lid Compact Wicked Grapple that shouldn't be done when operating a grapple.
    Ted is pretty rough on equipment even when he's not testing attachments.
    In this case, he could get by with it. The grapple was a perfect match to the small compact tractor being used so it did not affect the performance/agility of the tractor whatsoever.
    Ted said he couldn't feel the difference with the grapple installed vs. using it with the stock bucket.
    The grapple in the video is designed for tractors up to 35hp. For larger tractors, we offer the 54",60",66" and 72" dual lid Wicked Grapples that feature the same lightweight design, however they are built to withstand the added punishment that a larger tractor up to around 50hp can dish out.
    After the hours of testing was completed, the grapple still functions perfectly with no damage or misalignment.

    Here is what you shouldn't try at home! Professional driver, closed course.

    I was expecting you to say NOT TO PUSH with the movable part of the grapple,

    That's definitely not a good idea either!

    Second that emotion!

    I thought he was going over a couple of times, but that grapple was holding fast!

    Nice video, 'cause that's how we would use ours (just kidding, 'cause, unlike Ted, I can't just make or order up a new one....)
