Thanks a lot Jamie. 

Well, the two rigidifying tubes lead me to hiab/loglift. But i haven't seen one exactly the same so far.

Not Huldtins or Gripen, and it looks like it has lived a very hard life.

Yep, one of the claws is broken, and the  ram joints need doing. But for 250, that will be fine for a skidding grapple.

Well, kept my eyes peeled on grapples. I haven't found the exact same so far. Loglift and another finish company use quite often the tubes to rigidify the grapple But here the 2 tubes are 4 or 5 inches inside diameter. This thing is a monster.

Juste to show you the size of the ram. This is a full size bic lighter.
