IMG_0960.JPG ok here is one of mine. My dad bought this new in about 1980. The grapple is Bobcat added to a manure fork bucket. It did not take long to figure out the advantage this set up. This also where the ssqa comes from. It was known as Bobtach on this machine. I can use this grapple to pick up small items that you cant with a tractor. I also have an ea grapple on my 2032r as once you have it you cant live without it. The machines live 40 miles apart. Sorry no pics of the 2032r grapple tho.

This is what my first generation grapple looked like from 15 years ago and then the re-make of that for the 2320 that I built about 9 years ago. I actually use the grapple bucket more than the dirt bucket it seems.

Interesting grapples. Has anyone had any luck installing a grapple set up on a 955 Cut? The issue here in my mind would be the 5th/6th function hydraulics of the actual grabber..open/close. Anybody had experience there?

You need what is call a "3rd Function", your loader already has two so you need a third. WR Long has a kit for your machine, and maybe others depending on what loader you have...or you can always make your own setup. All it takes is money!

Search these for LOTS of general info, please start a new thread for your needs if you have more questions:
