I test a new arm grapple on my cheap loader
« on: August 10, 2020, 05:09:58 AM »
I'm testing is *DanG cool arm grapple on my cheap wheel loader. 
Cheap wheel loader properly asks, yep, I paid about $15k brand new with 1 year warranty and 0 hours on the meter.

Great find.  Where is it manufactured? Ah I see now, Chinese made.  Very interesting.

 Back in 1999 I bought a 35" grapple without the rotor was around $750.


 
now their $1500. or around 3k for the rotor added. There's pict's of it in my gallery. Back then no one offered any thing like that you built your own. When I talked to a few sales people at the forestry expo it wasn't lone before they where on the market.

You seem to be happy with your loader and your grapple if you keep it. Good for you

Looks good! Price is really good I think with those attachments included. Forks like that will cost at least 3-4000 over here I think. 
And you can't find a 20 years old volvo 4200 or 4300 for that money... Do they have 2,5-3 tons loaders as well, and what will they cost approximately? I'm looking for a 4200-4400 or L50-70 volvo loader but most have >20 000 hours and are expensive. The old BM641's and 621's are much cheaper, maybe I can find something like that. Otherwise a chinese loader would be a good option.

Yes, you can bye Everun ER25 it's a 2,5 ton loader for around 25K new in Sweden. If you order direct from china it's about 13-15K. You can find Everun on alibaba.
