    Artillian Grapple and Diverter

    I ordered the Atrillian Grapple and diverter kit 1/18 and received everything Friday 1/22. It took me all said and done about 8 hours to do the install. I'm slow, so there is that. I have to say that the kit is awesome! I couldn't have asked for a nicer piece of gear. If you are looking for a grapple, search no further. I didn't get too many pics of the install. It was cold and I was trying to concentrate. I can take pics if you have any specific questions. Here are a couple that I got!

    Hey Dan,

    Thanks for the mention! Regarding the 8 hours to install, I'm guessing a big chunk of that was wiring the diverter to your tractor, as I believe your model had to have it hard wired, correct? Maybe you could share a little bit about your electrical connection. That would surely be helpful to someone else.

    Other than that, I hope the rest of the diverter install and the grapple hoses wasn't too painful.

    Thanks again!

    Edit: Oops, just realized you have the 2032r, not the 2025r, so connecting directly to power was by choice... Sorry about that.

    Like I said I'm slow. The electrical hookup did take a while. I put the aux cable under the seat and pulled a wire from the battery. I started to pull a run from the starter, but that boot is dang near impossible to remove. I would say that anyone with at least a little bit of technical knowledge and someone that can stay off of the phone, could probably install in half the time.

    Thanks, I get lots of calls from people saying they have XYZ tractor and asking what's the best way to tie into power for the diverter. It's impossible to answer with every tractor being different. So anytime someone wants to share what they did, it's more than welcome and sure to help someone else down the road.

    For my 2210, I simply cut into the hot wire going to the ignition and then put the ground to bolt on the tractor frame. Very easy once I found a wire that had 12v going through it all the time. Getting the nerve to cut a completely perfect wire was the hard part. I also ended up bolting the diverter valve its self to the loader frame on the inside of it since there is no way to use the supplied mounting hardware for its intended use. It is tucked away from everything but still accessible.

    I wanted to leave the power plug alone since I use it to charge my phone when I'm in BFE, down at the deer lease. I don't know if I did it right, but here's what i did.

    Pulled power off of the battery. Ran it under the radiator with the starter wire.

    I'd have to take panels off to get the rest of it and I need to get on the road to help my buddy. I can probably get those tomorrow.
