    I got some pics of my skid steer with the used grapple i recently picked up. My son was running the Cat ,and moving logs around with me last weekend in my back yard.The grapple works great,and im impressed with the lift capacity of the 246.The machine has become very important to me,Ive only had it 6 months,dont know how i went so long with it.

    Look at how nicely my husqvarna powrbox fits the opening of the grapple.It actually fits in tightly,and doesnt move,like it was meant for it!
    With the attachment,I was able to log out a big pile of log length firewood for next yr in a matter of a few hours,I think I have enough for next yr.

    I have the same grapple and love it, I also have a conventional grapple that I use to rack for roots and haul logs. These are great attachments thanks for sharing the pics.

    I'm in the market for a root grapple for the t320.
    What brand do you have?

    If you maintain land, do clearing, or even demolition; the grapple is probably one of the best tools you can add to your attachment arsenal for your skidloader. I know several tree cutting guys who don't go on a tree drop job without their skidloader and grapple to clean up the limbs and shove them in the chipper. They all say the same thing; "I don't know why I worked so long without it." :)

    Next to my bucket, I think my grapple rake is my most versatile tool. I do a lot of work in the woods, it collects firewood like John shows, can uproot small trees and brush, scrape and collect sod, load scrap metal and lumber, and even pick up rocks. The list is endless.

    John, I can't tell from the picture, but make sure the pins to the two comb halves have the retaining bolts in place. Mine didn't and I didn't notice until one pin popped out. I had to monkey with the thing a while to get it back in.
