I've been mistreating this grapple for 5 years now. It continues to hold up.

This tree is HUGE. Had to ask for help to get it cut up.

Watched your video earlier this morning with my first cup of coffee! Yes, quite impressive! A little scary too 👀. The loader frame twisted pretty well when you lowered the boom and hit the tree. I’d like to see a grapple shootout on the 2038r for selfish reasons please😁 ArtilIIan, EA, Frontier, Worksaver, etc. in this scenario. Which bottom is better? Long or short? Dual clamshells or single? Part of a system like Artillian or dedicated? I really like the Artillian solution though the more I see.

Thank you Tim and Christy!

As much as it costs, it better last five years.
Thanks for the videos.

I have a friend in Ohio with the same name (Koch) and he pronounces it "cook". Always interesting the different ways language can be interpreted.

Excellent video Tim!
I bought the same Stihl 200 model saw about 2 years ago and loved it still do.
I bought the 220 last fall thinking it would be even better.
I have the same exact results and feeling about the two saws as you guys .
The 200 is my favorite as well, also same thoughts the 220 needs more power, the 220 stalls or locks up a lot more then the 200.
I was starting to think there was something wrong with my 220. Now I see I am not alone, this video was a big help.

I have abused this thing with nearly every usage since I got it. Nearly all of them documented on video. I’m pretty certain that I cannot damage it with a 1025r or 2038r.

That was one hell of a tree Tim!
I was doing that exact same thing today, except without the use of a grapple. :(
