    Default What type of Root Grapple to Purchase 66" or 72"?

    I have a kubota L4400 and I am interested in purchasing a Root Grapple to help me with Roots and remove Debris. I was looking at a Anbo Root Grapple m (for compact tractors).....but they (Anbo) were trying to push me to a a S Grapple instead? I am concerned that the S is a little to big for the L4400.

    I do not know whether to purchase a 66" or 72" size grapple as well? Does anyone have suggestions?

    You can get too big... the problem is the wider you go you can tweak your loader arms... you'll likely be just right around 66"... KennyV

    I have a 66" Anbo grapple and it is a beast and light weight. The model I have is the GRM series. This unit weighs less than 400# and is really tough. Did I mention I have it on a L4400 Kubota?
    I have the 6 inch spacing on mine and it overall is a perfect match.
    Here are a couple links to some of the grapple work.

    dex3361,

    I bought a different brand from Skid Steer Attachments Pallet Forks Hay Spears Bobcat Cat John Deere Mount Plate and picked the 60" instead of the 72". Weight was a concern as was having it to wide to slip in between trees. The Anbo unit is a high quality product and you won't be disappointed. My unit weighs about 550 lbs and works good for what I need it to do. I cleared a piece of my property this summer and had quite a pile of logs to clean up. Since then, I've used it for moving large rocks, stumps, and clean up of road I have that goes to the back of the property. It's turned into a real handy tool.
