Bill M,
  What is the weight of the grapple? What is its max opening? How many hydraulic hookups does it need?

thanks

Any idea what shipping might be to CA.  Would you be willing to put it on a pallet for shipping?
Always try it twice, the first time could've been a fluke.

I would have to build a pallet that is strong enough. I have no clue as to what shipping might cost. Anyone here on the forum know about shipping rates?

Could this be fitted onto a full size backhoe?  I have a John Deere 410 with QA bucket on the hoe, and this would be a perfect addition for material handling.
Only thing is I don't have extra remotes going back there?

Yes, I think it could be attached to a backhoe. The Northeast Implement web site has pictures of a grapple on an excavator. I think they also have a quick attach mount for backhoes.

What kind of loader did this come off of?  This looks identical to the one on my Frankilin.

I bought it used from a dealer who sold Serco loaders ( has since gone out of business ) and had it on an Atlas knuckleboom.

I'd be all over this I think if it weren't for the shipping, mine needs the all cylinders rebuilt and some welding.  Thanks for the info.  One step closer to decoding my machine.

How many degrees rotation will it do? I might be able to use it on my excavator for loading my sawmill.

It will do continues rotation but the hoses will wind up around it.

That sounds like a recipe for disaster. It should either have full continuous rotation or a stop to prevent it. Sorry.
What make is this, maybe the right part would allow continuous?

I used it like this for years and never broke a hose, wound them up pretty good sometimes but never broke one. I was going to buy a rotator for it but ended up buying a complete new grapple.

It looks like the rotator motor is not shown. Do you have pics of that too? I'm trying to figure how I might use it.

May be interested if this still available.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

Is it still available?  If so would you be willing to put on a skid and bring it to a UPS terminal?
