I ordered mine may 8, promised in mid june. Pushed back several times and in mid september it was pushed to march 2022. I pondered waiting but decided to try my luck searching elsewhere. Found one in Ohio near Dayton but they said shipping to new york would be $1500-2000. Plus they are about 8-9 hours away so pick up was not an option.

I checked Messicks site and see they had some coming soon so I contacted them. Sales person said they were back ordered to next year but, and it was a big but, they had some virnig coming in that were not spoken for. So in less than 2 weeks and $150 shipping I took possession of a Virnig V30 series URG60CT.
Looking at it it has teeth cut into the tines top and bottom that the land pride lacked. So maybe it isn't up to some other owners needs it will suit mine and I got it now. Give Virnig a look . I think it is a better unit for me.

Would you share what Messicks wanted for the grapple?

Did you take a look at one?
it was $2,425 plus shipping of $150.60 for me. They told me they don't do the tax for NY so that is my "responsibility" It was a couple hundred more than the LP but I figure it was a crap shoot if I would get the LP in march. I cut my own firewood and I wanted it before starting next april. Today I mounted a backup camera in my grill guard and it helps seeing what is going on. I need a little time on it but this lets me see it when it is raised and rolled forward before grabbing it.

Maybe tomorrow I can try. I have a struggle getting them from my phone to the computer and then get them on here.

I see someone else wrote about cutting teeth on the model land pride I had ordered so that factors in for a little more because I hadn't thought about that and being new to grapples.

Thanks. No but I am sorta in the market. Messicks is a 45 minute drive for me and I was curious.

Looks to be very similar and equivalent to the LP 0660. Strange times these days!!

FWIW Used mine this weekend. Still love it...

Teeth should give a better grip, can't complain about the LP SGC0660 it can grip more than the FEL can lift 1500# or so

I took delivery of my SGC0660 Tuesday this week after ordering when I bought my tractor at the very end of August.

After the ransomware news and other production delays I consider myself extremely fortunate to have gotten it so fast.

Only thing I’m missing now is the rotary cutter.
