    Default Grapple has been paying for itself!

    Added a grapple to the CT450. Justified it to myself as a back saver. I've been lucky so far and figured a good back is priceless.

    I moved the first couple rocks my wife wanted for landscaping around the house last night. One big one repaid a lot of the initial grapple cost! I remember the last time I tried (unsuccessfully) to move it using a bucket on a Ford 2000 2WD and a 5 foot pry bar

    This time I picked it up in the same spot as I tried to move it from last time - LOL.

    I may have been light on ballast with the 612 lb brush cutter. But I kept it very close to the ground in low range and all went well.

    I've used it for brush/logs this spring and that is very handy, but this was GREAT! What a handy tool.

    Took me about 6 month's before I convinced myself that I needed one. I wish that I would have did it sooner. It is an invaluable implement.

    That is one of those things that you never know how you lived without it.

    I convinced myself before I got a tractor... Bought both (plus some) at the same time.

    This grapple from WR Long is one of my favorite implements.
