Hi all. I have a situation that I would like some advice on.
My yard has a lot of areas that could use some dirt fill and leveling, but my 59 year old back can't do the moving and spreading by shovel any more so I need some mechanical means to do that.
I currently have an '83 JD 420 with a plow and grapple. The plow does on for winter and the grapple goes on for summer. I also tow a DR Power Grader behind it to maintain my gravel driveway.
I also have an '16 JD x394 that has a plow but is really only used for mowing duties and towing around a 10P cart.
I'm thinking about a plow/shovel to move the dirt and using the Power Grader to level things out. But that means putting on and off the grapple that I use regularly for fire wood and other duties, which is a pain.
So, I'm wondering if there is a quick connect system that I could put on the 420 to be able to quickly and easily swap between the plow/shovel and the grapple? Or is there a better option (that is low cost)?
