    Hi Scott

    I just got back up to the mountains last night and have not been on the forum for a while.
    The grapple works great. You can pick up a twig with it in the pincers and place logs wherever you want. you can pick up multiple logs or individual logs. To change direction of pick you just open the grapple, put one side against the ground or any object and pivot the PT and rotate the pick 90 degrees. I have not rigged it for the back end yet, may do that this Summer.
    I attach a pick of it coming up a steep hill with a 15 foot log. If you want to build one I can lend you the patterns for the steel grapple parts.

    Very nice! That should make it easier to cut the logs up too.
