How satisfying was it to use it as a demolition machine? 😄
I used the BX25D a few years ago with a Land Pride grapple to tear an old camper apart. I wanted the rolling chassis and it went very quickly and was lots of fun. :giggle:

Very! It was fun to do and it saved so much on my back.

Now in all fairness, any grapple would most likely meet the OPs need, I would just greatly encourage anyone to get a grapple. They are wonderful tools and as you noted, very fun to play with.

It is my favorite addition for sure! Haven't used it for demo, but still satisfying to plow into a thicket and rip out all the undergrowth!

another vote for the EA 55. It's pretty much my most used implement during the summer.

Apparently EA attachments has permanently closed so I won’t be paying $2600 after all.

Yes unfortunately
So you know for a fact that Everything Attachments has "permanently closed"? You're an hour away from them so maybe you know something that we don't.

After several phone calls going unanswered I suspected something was up. When google says permanently closed I thought that was strange. When a salesman doesn’t respond well that’s strike 3. Come to find out they have been sued by a contractor. Maybe they will file for bankruptcy and re open. I know for sure I couldn’t buy a wicked 55 today.

It has changed for me also. It was listed as permanently closed earlier today. If I get a return call or email Monday I’ll let you know. A bit early for April fools
I went down to their manufacture warehouse several months ago and they had a ton of inventory outside.

Google did the permanently closed thing to me twice. Google is looking for money and has little regard for those that don't line their pockets. I would look for another source of information before accepting the closed news as fact.

Doesn't say they are closed for me either. Maybe their quote
To ensure quality, we have NO CHINA MADE attachments on our entire website!
Made the G00gle overlords uncomfortable.

You might be on to something....

I use Duck-Duck Go, and the EA website appears "normal" to me.

I was able to add a grapple to my cart as of a few minutes ago.

There is many posts on the various Kubota related Facebook groups yesterday about EA being closed, including some from people who live in the community where the factory is.

The thing is that people on FakeBook may live anywhere on the planet, you just can't believe anything from that source. The truth will come out eventually and it might be better to wait.

outside the box option...
just use forks. I've carried a lot of small (BX23S sized) logs with the pallet forks. You curl back and log stays put. Have used carryall on the D-14 to haul 2500# walnut logs to the mill. I did strap them down as I was going on the road between two properties 1/2 mile away.
Get a thumb add on for the forks if you are handling bunches of logs

If you absolutely distrust anyone who post, specifically on FB, what makes you thing folks on this forum are any different/better?
