What is a good width for a grapple to be used on a 3032E? I’ve looked at several and watched several videos but haven’t found a good comparison between widths.

48" or 55" would be a good match, no heavier than about 250 pounds.

Are you guys recommending that size to K9 based on the frame size or the horsepower of the 3032?
I have a 60" on order with my 3046. Should I consider switching to the 53"?

The "E" machines have slight less lift capacity than the R's do, hence my recomandaion. I think 55" is good for your sized machine, but weight is a bigger consideration.

I would say that 55” is a perfect width for the grapple.

If the primary purpose is bush, you can go a bit wider which will be a bit heavier as well. When it comes to moving heavier stuff like logs, you'll just have to reduce the size of the load a bit.

If the primary use will be logs, the lower the weight of the grapple will increase your productivity.

Think of it like bucket capacity. If you move a lot of loose debris a larger bucket works. The few times you need to move gravel, you just have to take smaller loads.


Strong grapples that are lighter in weight require a bit move engineering and higher grades of steel so expect to see that reflected in the price.

I have a 50" CTA grapple and had it on my 1025 and now on my 2038> I would highly recommend it.
