    Default New Wicked Grapple....Root Rake Style....Start to Finish!!!

    Ted started working on our new Rake Style Wicked Grapple today. The design will be an enhanced version of the Bradco Compact Root Rake.
    So far, we know that it will open 4" wider than the Bradco and provide 35% more clamping force.
    I wanted to start this thread to share the design and build process of this new product. I hope you enjoy.
    As always, we'd love to hear your comments!!

    Can you not let the grapple tine go on the outside of the rake and be able to squeeze down to the smallest limb?

    If it is a three tine grapple, with one tine in the middle, just remove the center support and have three grapple tines compress things to the max.

    Git er done.

    Single lid or dual lid?

    Yours looks like a better design than the one I used to have. It was good for raking, but wouldn't pick up much.

    I did like the dual lids.

    The kit idea is on hold for now. It would take extra manpower in many areas that we're not equipped to tackle at present.
    I think Ted wants to focus more on developing new attachments and expanding our product line-up.

    I agree that it should have dual lids. A single long lid would make it much more difficult to grab irregular shaped piles or logs. I have heard arguments both ways on whether the tines should meet to better pick things or bypass for a better "squeeze" on small stuff. Either way if it turns out well I got my credit card ready!

    It's going to have tines all the way across like the Bradco below. When they send me some more pics, i'll post them for ya.

    I haven't had much to post about the new grapple lately, but Ted just sent me a couple of pics(cell phone quality) from today.
    I'm getting ready to head home for the day, but I couldn't resist the urge to share them with you guys!

    I like the looks but really think it is a mistake to make it a single lid! Dual lids may require more engineering but would greatly increase the holding power for uneven loads!

    Any idea what the offerings will be for width and what they'll weigh in at?

    Been thinking of something like this for a while - but it would be going on a kubota B3200 with the Kubota SSQA adapter on the FEL - and most of the products out there are way overkill weight-wise for that application.
