I ordered the grapple 1/19. As of today, 4/19, no grapple and no solid known date for delivery.

I sent an email to EA on 4/9 and they replied same day that most grapple orders have been going over 12 weeks with a guess of 'next week' for mine. That would've been last week.

Maybe this week...

Hmmmmmm. That's not good. I ordered my grapple first of March.

I picked up the grapple today (5/4). It's still sitting on a trailer but I'll hopefully get it unloaded tonight or tomorrow.

It was ordered 1/19 and received 5/4 if anyone is keeping score.

Everyone always wants to see pictures...

MX5400 | BH92 | EA 60" Wicked Root Rake Grapple + plus a slightly oversized 4 YO for size comparison. He's going to be tall like his daddy.

I think the smallest bucket Kubota makes for the BH92 is a 12" and no Ripper tooth is available through Kubota. There might be aftermarket buckets and Rippers out there but I never spent anytime looking for any.
Hi Ed. I recently picked up a BH92 for my MX. I wonder with your set up does a land pride quick hitch work when the back hoe is removed? I just got the BH today but my quick hitch is at other property 4 hrs away. When I docked and undocked the BH and tried to install/uninstall the lift arms it was close so it looks like maybe very little adjustment to 3 pt arms will be possible with the subframe on. Is this your experience? Thoughts? Thank you in advance for your consideration.

I no longer have the MX5800 but I did have a land pride QH15 that I used on it with the subframe and no issues

Thanks for the reply ED. I’ll find out if GH20 works with the subframe in a few weeks. I’ll be taking to the other place and swapping implements a bit. Have a safe day.
