I would say it's worth it's value in scrap metal, the grapple is a bonus for having to cut it all apart.
I'm with Southside. aluminium parts might be cracked by the heat. Everything with an oil seal or an O ring is to be considered dead. Transport for it ain't gonna be easy or cheap. There is auctioneer fees too.

You can plumb your own with Co2 tank and some soft copper lines to some simple pipe manifolds.  Anywhere you know oil and leaves will be soaked underneath where you cant hit it direct with a fire extinguisher, just put a length of 1/4" sched 40 with holes drilled all over and a cap on the end, zip tied to whatever to stay put.  Itll flood the oxygen out of the space and prevent a runaway.

Now that's a neat idea mike and actually a potential small business.  Develop kits for skid steers to let people install runaway fire prevention.  Seems to me that's a business, make the kit parts, ship in a box with instructions.

I'll add it to the hundred other potentially big things ive invented in my life.    

The community college i went to had an issue with seating for the increasing number of morbidly obese students.  Federal law demanded they solve it at any cost.  Adaptive services lady came to a class looking for a solution, no one was interested.  I whipped up some graphing paper sketches and priced material.  Showed her, she says how much per unit.  I said $300 [2004ish] she says ill start with 100 units, when can you have them ready?    

I took a long look in the mirror and decided fat kid desks wasnt gonna be my identity.  Almost borrowed a lot of money over it.  I did make a product for 8 years that i sold to my distributor.  Still in production.



But its all fun and games until someone sues you for a burnt ponsse.  Id rather haul rock.

For several years I worked at an airport and was in the fire/police department. Earthmoving contractor was working on the backside of the runway. One operator rolled a big Cat hauler. It caught on fire. His exact words was " if I had had an extinguisher I could have got the fire out before it got big.

Anyway we rolled our crash/fire trucks. Extinguished the fire but hauler was toast. Company could have probably bought 40 fire extinguishers for what we billed them for foam to extinguish the fire. 
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Yup, catching it in the incipient stage is always good.  :) That's why I keep a can (PW) in my Mule all the time, plus a small dry chem. Is' amazing what you can do with a can in the early stages  ;D even if it is not the correct tool for the job. Always keep my extinguishers handy. Very cheap insurance.

I ain't the woodcutter, but I can cut wood 'til the woodcutter gets here.
