 JD 790/419 FEL - Brush Fork (Grapple Fork)

Has anyone come up with there own design, or a quick attach, brush fork for the front end? I want to be able to pick up and move big piles of brush. A hydro set of upper arms to grab on to the pile would be great so i won't lose much while driving...

Heres a link to a picture of what i have in mind.. Thanks!!

There are lots of them avaiable out there. I believe I am going to build my own this year.

Have the hyd stuff. Just have to do some dumpster diving for some scrap. Several head pulleys from conveyos in there now those take care of shafts and pivot points just need to cut the arms and linkages.

Check out anbomanufacturing.com they will send you a CD showing their line of front end Grapple Rakes. I am waiting to see their product at our yearly Ag Show next week. Ron

I saw these at the Big Iron show in Fargo a few weeks ago, they don't require hydraulics.

There are many ways to do this. I have a comercially-built "industrial grapple bucket" which is essentially a very heavy-duty bucket with two individual grapples. I've picked up cars from the side with it with my bobcat loader.
A quick and easy way is buy/make two, three or four bucket-mounted pallet forks, add tubular steel extensions on them and you won't need grapples. I built a sort of a grate for my backhoe loader that has 1" square bars spaced about 4 inches apart and about four feet long. The bars are all connected with a piece of 4" thick-wall angle cut down on one edge to fit snugly over the cutting edge. To secure it I use 3/4" bolts throught the bottom of the bucket and into the grate rear. I've picked up 5 yds of yard waste in one scoop. It's great for picking up or even raking debris. Works great picking up firewood. Had about $200 in it.
