    Any updates on the diverter and or grapple?

    Got my forks last month, very happy with them.

    I've been looking into grapples and diverters recently and trying to hold off until your's come out.

    Any updates on these?

    Hi Machinewars,

    First, Thanks!

    The diverter has been getting worked every day and is just inches away. The 200../H130 diverter should be wrapped up this week (much depends on other people/companies ) and the H120 is right behind. It's all hanging on hose lengths and fittings, which has been a ton of development work and trials to refine.

    Other loaders will have to be incorporated as they come up, though mounting locations have already been vetted and established for many of them, thankfully. It will just be a matter of nailing down the hoses. The electrical shouldn't be too bad for any machine, depending on individual preferences.

    The diverter had to come first for the plow adapter but once the diverter is nailed down, the grapple is basically just waiting to get cut.

    Sorry, between limited resources, normal production demands, and throw in some really brutal recent equipment issues, this project has taken far far longer than expected. But it's all going to be well worth it, I promise! As with all Artillian products, the goal is to get as OEM-like with as seamless an installation as possible.

    Artillian,
    Thank you for the update. You've got me convinced to wait for the grapple/diverter release.

    If you have time for one more question???? Any idea what your goal weight for the grapple is?

    That would be complicated to answer, and I can't go into specifics for the time being, but as usual, light weight is first on the list.

    Hi Ron,

    Now that the diverter valve kits seem to be going smoothly and all of the distractions of winter/plow products have been hammered out, the grapple is now back on the schedule. It's tracking for a spring release at this point, maybe sooner.

    FWIW, the diverter valve was always a necessary first step since it is a required component to operate the grapple. It may not be obvious to the casual observer, but the diverter valve system was the hard part.

    Thank you for asking.

    I'm looking forward to getting the grapple as I've now got some trees down and just waiting for the grapple to finish things up. slkpk

    My pole barn collapsed with all of the heavy wet snow we've had. So now I'm really looking forward to the grapple. slkpk
