I could use a grapple,but at only 40hp,I feel it's not quite big enough.
I've kept my forestry equipment on the small side. I've got a forestry grapple on my NH TC33D. Fortunately, the grapple only weighs as much as the bucket it replaced (one of several reasons I went with the Forestry grapple, rather than some other designs). Having worked with the grapple, I feel the same way about it as I do about my logging winch: I don;t know how I ever got along without it.
Yes, I sometimes wish I had more lift capacity (even though the Woods 1012 loader I have on it will handle more than the stock NH loader they were selling at the time). I probably should have gone for the TC40 back when I was tractor shopping. Since I'm not doing this for a living, I get by just fine with my smaller tractor, it just takes a bit longer. On the upside, I can get into places that I couldn't with a larger tractor, and my neighbor has a ~50HP JD that he lets me use when I need something bigger.
If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.   - Abraham Maslow
