I can squeak it through the bank account. BUT, if any of you breathe a word of this (cost) to my wife, I will hunt you down. LOLIf you have the $ a grapple is a great tool. I found a used grapple that came off a wrecked mini skid steer for not much money. It did take a lot of straightening and still isn't totally like it should be but works well.
I have pallet forks and the grapple. If I'm dealing with brush, limbs etc. I'll take the grapple every time. I just have a lot more control with the grapple plus it's easy to pick up stray brush, put it in the pile and grab it all in one bunch with the grapple. Seldom do I have to hand load anything with the grapple plus it will hold small stuff that might fall through the forks.
The Artillian diverter valve works well and Kenny is a first class person to deal with. It's not inexpensive but mine has worked well.
If the bank account doesn't allow for the grapple, use what you've got. Lots of members on here use pallet forks to move brush and logs. I'd use them as well if I didn't have the grapple.
