    SSQA Frame Getting a Grapple

    Sunday night I ordered the grapple to go on my Artillian frame.

    One thing I noticed when I logged into Artillians site was a picture that kind of looked familiar. It turns out I (well my tractor) has "made it to the cover of the Rolling Stone"! The picture for the link to the SSQA frame is one that I posted of my tractor with the new set of SSQA pallet forks that I got from Chris.

    Yesterday I ordered the third function diverter for the loader.

    Now I am just in a holding pattern, pacing back and forth waiting for my new toys to arrive.



    Maybe I could use the down time to shine up the old girl just incase another photo op comes around.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Anytime we can get pictures of our stuff on a garage queen, we're all over it!

    But seriously, we're still digging out of a heavy backlog of orders. It's hard to get more than a few grapple orders shipped per day because most of them include many other things that slow everything else down. Anyway, it won't be too much longer, certainly before next winter.

    In "Transit". I think I have carried more tractor stuff in my work van that work parts...

    I picked up my 3rd function kit today at lunch.

    The grass needs mowed, but it isn't supposed to rain until Wednesday.....

    That sure is a clean grapple! Mine looks like it has been through a war with lots of battle scars. But considering the extreme things I do with the grapple it is to be expected.

    You're going to love this thing. I have had mine a year and am still amazed at capabilities of this equipment.

    Have fun and keep your load low!
