    Default Pivot Pin

    Has anyone ever broke a pivot pin? After using my grapple for a few hrs. I went to grease a zirk on the quick-attach and the whole thing was gone. Removed the pin from the inner side and it had split into, the outer part fell out somewhere. I fill all fittings with moly-lith grease often and I'm not sure what caused the pin to break, I had only been moving brush. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0xjs1uh2ep...6%20Zirk.jpg?m, https://www.dropbox.com/s/ceqalizovd...en%20Pin.jpg?m

    Wow, that's just weird. I would have to think that pin had some rare defect from the manufacturer and was just a matter of time. I've never seen anything like that other than a shear bolt.
