Ive had the grapple sitting in the sun and it was impossible to connect the lines after the temperature built up some pressures in the system. I waited for it to cool off later and it went togther just fine. I could have burped the lines with a socket and a hammer but I just waited.

I started connecting my grapple hoses together after I unhook. I haven't had a problem since I started doing it. It lets the pressure equal out in the cylinder and keeps the couplers clean.

I ordered a “Waite Decompression Tool”. It’s a decompression tool, made to relieve the hydraulic pressure. It’s featured on a YouTube video, by “My Cluttered Garage”. I’ll report back on if it works. Tractor mechanic is $205 for the first hour. Tool is ~$80.
