I'm selling all my hardwood to a guy that just bought a new Bells processor.  He seems happy with it but found out quickly that it wasn't built for small wood.  When I sell long length firewood the tree gets merchandized to a 3 inch top so he has had to set the small stuff aside to do manually.

Well that stinks for him.  Spend all that money on a processor and then have to do it manually!

Does anyone know, on the multi-tech processors, if the grapple that feeds the log lowers and raises?

Hi guys. I have a Multitek 2040. The grapple does not not move up or down. But you can do wood down two 2". Not very productive  but you can grab & hold it.  The grapple is the best part. You can do anything that you drag out of the woods with it crooked wood no problem

I wonder how the grapple would handle slabwood.  I have been trying to figure out an efficient way to turn slabwood into firewood.  I was thinking to try and run some slabwood through our blockbuster next time I'm running it, but I don't think it's going to work great.

You could do the heavy slabs with the grapple. The small stuff wouldn't be worth the effort
