    Thanks everybody for the compliments. After a few hours of use I believe this tool is perfectly suited to my tractor and my uses. Soon I will be taking the rig over to a nearby church camp where I cut most my firewood. They have over 700 acres of woods and very recently had a 300 tree timber sale. I will report back on how the tractor and grapple do, with photos of course!

    Here are a few shots I took while loading out some firewood and saw logs. The tractor and grapple continue to impress me. I'm amazed what my MX will do for no bigger than it is. The biggest log was an 11' 4" red oak that was 28" at the butt. It was all the tractor wanted but it put it on the trailer. I need to make an extra counterweight I can hang on the back of the winch....

    Any chance you could take pics of the 3rd function setup?

    Here are a few shots of the valve, quick connects, and control handle. Sorry it took me so long and thanks for reminding me! If you need anymore just let me know.

    Looks like you are getting your moneys worth out of that grapple. That is something I am going to try to purchase this year. I think it would be handy for sawing logs up and grabbing wood already stacked to put in the dump trailer. That is really nice. I know your enjoying it. Nice pictures by the way. LUTT

    Yes it's definitely paying for itself. I don't have a bunch of hours on it yet but they've all been hard hours. If you get one you'll wonder what you ever did without it! Not to mention they're just plain fun!
