I will also agree with what an animal those machines are backed into an amish customer with a load of larch for his mill about this time of year and as i was unloading the frost gave way and the truck sank to the axles yup all of them the steers were still up and he says i can pull you out with my skid steer kind of chuckled and called a buddy for help. He comes roarin up with his machine 12" axle extensions, tractor tires and chained up , he had picked up a pallet of fence posts for extra weight that thing just squatted and pulled me out like something ive never seen before amazing said it handles 2 ton all the time

2 ton is nothing for a 9 series. That machine is "rated" for 3700 which i believe is 50% of tip load, so 7400lbs tip which means someone good can probably toe walk 4 ton or so. They ride smooth on 2 wheels and dont tear the ground up either.

Belive it or not for such a heavy machine it's light on the ground.
Makes less of a foot print than the 873 I was borrowing.
And the yard is soft.

I have an older 1993 742 with a mitsubishi propane engine,and it has run 7 years for me. I had to do a head gasket and new radiator, but it just runs and runs. I wish it could lift more.

Must be a keeper if you already named it. Do you like the fork grapple? I am looking at grapple buckets now.

Tacks Y,
Yes I like the fork grapple around the mill yard.
It works good for what I do. 
I would also like a root grapple they work great for clean up jobs.
My friend has one.

Nice score Bruno.

The only issue so far is my other sae quick attach stuff won't fit the quick attach. 
I will have to find someone to make a blank plate then have a sae quick attach welded to it.
I can't find anything all ready built.

Great name. "Big Bob"
Can you post a pic of the fork grapple and the name of it. I really need one at my bush yard, it is very rough terrain.
