    Grapple build

    After thinking about it for the last couple of years I am finally building a grapple. I have the time now since I retired a couple of months ago. I've googled and searched through GTT and TBN to try to steal, er I mean learn how others have done it. The grapple frame is the 3" angle iron quick attach frame I built for forks. I'll still be able to use forks with the frame by unbolting the bottom bracket to put the forks back on. Most of the steel is 1/4".

    Using the below material. Waiting on the hoses and fittings to be delivered.

    hyd. cylinder: Prince Manufacturing W200060-S Wolverine Tie Rod Cylinder, 2" Bore x 6" Stroke, 1 1/8" Diameter, 2500 psi, Chrome Plated $75

    diverter valve: Chief Stackable Solenoid & Manual Operated Circuit Selector Valves: 14 @ 3045 PSI GPM, SAE 8 Port Size, 5000 PSI, 220934 $145

    hoses: Northern Tools (4) 4' 3/8" in addition to using the current curl hoses

    hyd fittings: Discount hydraulics

    Grapple handle: Replace stock hydraulic control handle with 1/2" bent tube with bolts (1/4" holes drilled for wires) welded into each end and use a JD knob with a momentary switch. Copied off of Dirtrod.

    This is what it looks like so far.

    I love threads like these. I'm planning on buying a new welder very soon but I need to win the lottery to buy all of the other fabricating equipment I want. Like a good band saw and a plasma cutter that would cut 1/4- 3/4" steel effortlessly and clean. Very interested on how this turns out and I don't care if you paint it or not.

    It is a 1025R. Right now I'm waiting on the hydraulic hoses and a momentary switch.

    I posted this in another thread but in case someone doesn't see it there. If anyone is interested in hydraulic valves, cylinders, fittings, hoses, etc. there is a Halloween sale going on at baileyhydraulics. 30% off plus free shipping if you use the code treat16 at checkout. If I had this when I bought my valve and cylinder a couple of weeks ago it would have saved me about $45.
