So for anyone that comes later and reads this thread, I have ordered a Homestead 55" Root Grapple Pinnacle Series.
Can't wait to see pictures of it in use on the tractor

We'll be expecting price incl shipping, delivery time, and a full review, complete with pictures. :)

I don't know what brand Evan uses on his YouTube channel Country View Acres but it's a total piece of junk. It's so poorly/cheaply built and he was straightening a number of the tines on the episode tonight. I enjoy his channel though. but was really surprised at how cheaply made that grapple is. Just a bad design all around unless you use it for light duty work.

I seen the same thing. I went back to the video where he got the grapple to see what model. Although I missed the video where he bent them, so I don't know if it was bad design/material or operator error/abuse. I hate to say a product is bad without all the details.

Thanks for that. I don't think I've ever seen such a poorly designed and cheaply made grapple. The square tubing is ridiculously undersized.
