    Default Neal\'s Root Rake Grapple

    As requested by some, here are a few pictures of my recently built root rake grapple.

    It is a real labor saver.

    It is good for back rakeing or pulling vines out of trees, either down low or up high.

    Unmounted front view.

    We made stops to clip inplace along with the parking foot, so when it is removed from tractor, it will hold grapple partially open & keep all pressure off hydraulics for easy disconnect and reconnect.

    Last shot. Rear view unmounted.

    Action shots will have to come later.

    Most of the time, I am having too much fun, to waste time taking pictures. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
