    Bucket or FEL attachment for cleaning up brush with 1025R

    Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 1025R FILB. I have lots of brush, limbs and similar debris to clean up. What solutions have you guys found for this with the 4' bucket? Grapples? I'm not seeing any grapples for the H120 loader. How about tooth bars? What creative limb and brush clean up techniques have you guys come up with?

    I just installed a 48" Piranha toothbar this weekend. First thing I tried it on was my waiting to burn brush pile to fluff it up and get the leaves out of it. It IS NOT a grapple, but it really does a good job of keeping brush in front of the bucket and lifting it to stack. It stays in front far better when turning also.

    My first experience doing brush like this was with a Johnny Bucket Jr./toothbar on my GX335. That little toothbar made a world of difference cleaning up after an ice storm!

    I was wondering about forks Gizmo. Seems that could be a fairly economical possibility and might work pretty good on a brush pile.

    If I were to do it over, I'd get the 53" bucket.

    As for forks, I haven't had much luck with them and brush.

    I use forks for the main brush. I hope to buy a landscape rake with wheels for the smaller stuff. But the forks work great and then my pallet box is great for the smaller stuff.

    Good point psrumors, what Carvel Loafer shows in his picture is what I was thinking also.
    For a lot of little stuff I've used our landscape rake along with the FEL but I have been known to hang a set of old tire chains across the fork tines which helps to stop the medium size stuff from falling through the forks and the chains act like a basket to some extent.
    The stuff I can mow over and chop up is left for the mower.

    So you guys see that much difference in bucket width? Can you give some examples of what you mean? I was thinking the extra width could possibly be a disadvantage in close quarters. How much more does the 53" weigh?
