Mine's a EA Wicked and it often does not scoop under stuff. It works sometimes but it's not a dependable way to do it for me. What's worked pretty well for me for logs is to contact the front log with the tines and then roll the grapple forwards while inching the tractor forwards until the grapple is facing down. Hopefully the tines are on the other side of the logs and I can grab them from above by squeezing the top and bottom around the logs. If the pile of logs is too big then I need to separate them first (and not by using the lids to pull at them as that can put a lot of pressure on the hydraulics).It just doesn't seem to do what I want, ever. Does not grab and hold on, I can never seem to get it to get under stuff. It's a cheap one, came with the tractor. I was noob and did not know what to look for.
The Wicked grapple does have pretty good teeth on it and I have been able to grab logs so big that I could not close the lids around them.
