I still dont have my tractor - so this is more ocd theorizing than anything... I figured I could build a light duty 360 rotating grapple for the 260B for <2k (A lot of that tied up in a rotary union). Any thoughts if there is value in thinking more on this & breaking out the sketch pad, or is the mechanical thumb good enough. I'm very much a novice at rockeries, so it seemed the additional degree of freedom could be a substantial time saver, and a fun project to build.
