grapple bucket
« on: November 29, 2014, 09:34:50 PM »
                we have been on many  portable sawing jobs over the years  , ok only 3 yrs but seems like a lot of cutting in that time ,   and we have always  winched up our logs up the ramps of our lt-25 ,   well   today  was awesome  at our site we had a guy  loading the logs with a brand new  bobcat skidsteer with a grapple bucket  ,,,   it was great  ,  did i say that already ,,,  my partner is on vacation so i had to bring a friend to help who never helped before  ,   and i let him mill after a while , well  after ruining a couple of blades  he finally got it  , i hope ,,   we milled  about  1300 bd ft today of ash, elm and oak ,in 7 hrs ,  very productive with  the grapple bucket  ,the logs averaged about 10- 15 inch so lots of loading  and unloading ,  we get to go back and mill more next sat  ,   very good day,,,

Congrats on a very good day.  Hydraulics are good no matter what they are hooked to.   ;D

What mill are you running?

Yes grapple is nice.  My business partner was using forklift and a skid steer with forks.  I brought my grapple when I moved my stuff over.  It sat unused for a few weeks and I finally stuck it on the skid steer cause it was a real pain using forks.
Well they pretty much haven't been off the machine since.  :D

I have these one:
(Ebay ad deleted by Admin)

Have a few hundred hrs on it, has worked great other than blowing the hoses a few times.  Either from getting hung on something or one just blew apart a couple weeks ago.  I put 4000psi hoses and that seems to be the ticket.
