    Default Root Grapple Connectors

    Hello to the group,
    I'm installing a root grapple to the front of a compact tractor loader, and I'm being told that the hyd. connections go on the back, and it seems stupid to me. I don't have intentions of adding a back-hoe or any other hyd. tool to the back so why put the connects back there?
    Thanks, Jake

    First, Welcome to TBN

    Second, What tractor are we talking about here?

    The auxiliary "remotes" offered by most manufactures are ported to the rear for use in blades and other rear mounted implements. There are a lot of people who just use long hoses extended from the rear to the FEL to operate grapples, and some install "electric diverters" that "diverts" fluid from the dump/curl circuit to the grapple when a button is press on the joystick handle. These diverters will cost about $500-$600 depending on the application.

    If you do a search here for these terms you will learn a lot about these setups, it's one of the most talked about items here.

    Thanks Kenny, I'll search those topics. I have a Kioti CK25HST, a '53 Farmall Cub, and a JD 410. The grapple is going on the new Kioti.
