    Default adding a grapple

    I have a kubota b9200hst with a Montana fel. I recently purchased a 1.6 acre lot that will need some brush and dead trees removed. a grapple would be a nice addition, the question is how to supply the hydraulics. I think my tractor hydraulics are maxed out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks in advance!

    Default Re: adding a grapple

    In a broad form, you need to add one more valve after your FEL valve (between it and the drain), which you can do if your valve has "power beyond" capabilities (most tractor FEL valves have such capabilities.) This valve, which can be mechanical or electric, will give you one more set of hoses. Alternately you can replace your FEL valve with one having one or two more spools (I did this.) If your bucket is on a quick attach system, you can get a root grapple, or whatever type you like. If not, you can get a grapple to add to your bucket, slightly less useful, but cheaper.
    Specifically, if the Montana valve has PB, it's merely a matter of plumbing and money.
