Nice. I would like a grapple, but still have not come to grips with paying and waiting. You have more patience and trust than I.

8 weeks isn’t bad even pre-RONA and - if something happens where it never materialized - you just call the card company and that’s that.
Somewhere else someone else also made the point that with the current inflation rates - you could look at it as an investment ;)

8-10 weeks and a 72" Pinnacle Grapple will be moving in at my place!
A you tube channel, OTW, Nathan Elliott, features this grapple in many videos. He has 2 New, + 1 almost new tractors, however they are not kubota . You may have visited his channel, if not, a good place to observe Homestead products @ work.

Congratulations. If you do anything with trees, and some of your other posts indicate you do, grapples are wonderful things.

I envy anyone with a grapple. I can't quite justify one for what I do around my property, but darn are they nice.
At this point in my life, I can’t see how anyone with enough land to turn a pickup truck around without backing up can possibly be expected to maintain it to any reasonable standard without 24/7/365 access to a giant hydraulic claw. YMMV…

So far communication with them has been off the hook awesome - email confirming my order and asking me to verify sizing and connector information. Then another email asking me to confirm shipping and a estimated shipping week (IN AUGUST!)
Thus far - super happy with this manufacturer as a choice.

And @NCL4701 - I've got 35 acres - I think I can justify it...

Not just for trees. Back savers as well. Grapple is the best thing I've purchased. Congrats you will love it.
