    I Think i Want A STUMP Grapple, Instead Of A Regular Grapple??

    When I think of uses for another attachment for my loader, moving brush is third or fourth down the list of frequent jobs that need done.

    Other than the moving material, and minor digging that my bucket can do,, I think the next attachment needs to be more powerful than my loader bucket.

    A stump bucket sure would be a powerful digging tool, adding a grapple to a stump bucket might be just the answer all of my needs,,,



    This looks like a powerful tool. able to dig pretty deep, and able to move rocks that I constantly struggle with,,,

    I try to look at most grapple threads, but, I do not think I have seen this type grapple discussed,,

    There seems to be several people that offer virtually identical grapples,, even though the specs seem identical, the weight specified varies by 200 pounds,,,

    So, has anyone used one of these?

    I haven't used one but have looked at lots of pictures as ongoing research before heading to the welding bench to build one. I think this is my next loader accessory build. They look pretty useful.

    That looks like it would be nice for firewood chunking up logs with a chainsaw as well.
    Any links to that for curiosity sake?
    *guessing it's a skid steer grapple judging by step traction strip.

    My tractor is "skid steer attachment" ready,,,

    Extreme Duty Stump Bucket Grapple - Skid Steer Attachment Depot

    There are a couple on eBay that are John Deere Attachment ready,, I just glanced at those,,,

    The attachment is offered by several people,, I do not know if they are made in one place, or copies of each other,,

    Even though the specs are the same (length, width, material thickness,, etc,,) the specified weight runs from 500 to 700 pounds,,,

    I just have to make the observation that it looks like a prop for the next Alien movie. If I was clearing allot of land I would want one.

    That would be a nice addition to the tool shed for sure.

    I am not sure if I have enough tractor/loader to make that sucker really work.

    CAD - your IH would really like playing with that.

    BTW, well need pictures!
