When I had a 3046r quoted had one dealer quote a Frontier AV20F and another quote a Frontier AV20H. What are you all using with your 3 series? Looking for recommendations on which route to go.

I have the 3046r and am using the CTA grapple. I have had this grapple for several years with no issues. Any grapple you get will be a great asset to the tractor.

I have the Artillian, and a friend has the CTA. If I was buying today, I’d look at he CTA or EA Wicked.

EA Wicked/single lid. Never had a problem with it.

I have a 55” EA wicked root grapple, very strong and light weight.....only wish would be on jaws of lower grapple part, wish they were a little longer forming more of a “ledge” for grabbing things

CTA 55" for 3046R and 2520. I like the heels on the grapple for back dragging and ability to insert 1/2" rebar in lower tines creating 2x4 inch sieve.

I run the AV20H on my 3046r. It's fantastic, 61" wide, it's perfect for the trails in my woods.

those mentioned are excellent grapples.

you may find something from a local shop that could possibly save a little money. If you try this route, just look for good quality steel, in a style you like. I looked for grease zerks at the pivot points, there are a few models out there that just pivot on a bolt with an open hinge, I would probably stay away from that design. I live in the Carolinas and got mine from CID, very beefy and checked all the boxes I was looking for.

I recommend ordering one with the correct hoses and couplings already installed for your tractor if you can. I think it would be disappointing to get your new grapple home and not be able to use it until you bought a few more parts...

Any specific reason you would not go with an Artillian again? I was looking at those partly because i have limited storage areas so being module I could find more places to store it in the winter.

Not really, I have no specific reason at all. I just really like the CTA design and the wider lid it has. The Artillian is certainly a nice unit too, and has served me well.

Thank you for all of your responses. I like the CTA design and setup, price is competitive as well so will probable go that route.

Good to know information, thanks for the heads up on this. Wonder why they don't come with them?
