    Default NEW NAI GRAPPLE

    I just ordered the North American Implement (old Gator) 60" light duty single cylinder grapple. I spoke with Stella at NAI (direct) who gave me a great price of $929. The shipping was $256 to a business in California or residential delivery for $311. Anyway, I choose residential for a total of $1240. to my door.

    It was a close call between the 48" Wildcat and the 60" NAI. I like them both. They weight about the same... 420lbs vs 425, so I went with the 60". WIldkat was great to deal with too. I spoke with Anita who gave me a price of $700 without the couplers + $342 for delivery. That is $200.00 less than what is advertised on their web site. Just mention this site. Again, a close call. I'd like to have both of them.

    Anyway, the 60" NAI cost me $200 more than the Wildkat. I should have it next week sometime. I spent lots of time researching these and I'm glad that's over with. Now it's time to configure hydraulics.

    NAI 60"... Right off the truck... delivered today. The truck dropped it off at the driveway and I took it from there. Now to work on the 3rd function valve. Anxious to put this thing to work.

    That's nice. Looks like a two cylinder model... and it even matches the tractor. It may take me a month to finish up the hydraulics. Too many other things to do.

    What did you do for your third function?

    thank you! yes its a 68in two cylinder. i also use it on my T190.

    I have a T off my rear remote valve that goes to the quick connects. its then all factory look with metal hard lines to the flat face couplers. I'm still need to take the lines off, sandblast, prime and paint. I just threw a quick coat of white on as i used it right away.

    i can grab better detailed pictures tomorrow. this was my best route as i had the most of the stuff. -image-1359083445-png-image-1647005902-png-image-3096150744-png-image-3722421735-png

    Thanks for the info and photos catdozer. It looks like you're using the larger skid steer quick connects at the bulkhead?

    No problem, yes I used the flat face couplers, so the. I can run it also on the skid steer. I also have a plow for it so flat face was my best route!

    Heres some better pictures of my setup. My 235 already had the T but was capped. So if you don't have that I would get some hoses and plug into rear remotes
