 Bodozer Grapple Questions

Just rec'd my Bodozer Grapple for my 4400.

I installed the JD auxiliary hydraulics lines down the loader arms. Here's the question...

How have you guys run the lines to the grapple? The Aux Hyd lines run along and terminate on the inside of the loader arms. The Bodozer has fittings that are on the outside. I'm concerned about the path, length, etc. of the lines. Hoping that someone else has gone through the learning curve on this one for me!

Thanks for the input.

 Bodozer Grapple Questions

I have high pressure flex hoses on the grapple that connect to the aux line fittings on the loader. There is no real path, they're long enough to make the connection and provide enough slack to allow the grapple to roll through it's range of travel. I do have to be careful to route the hoses out of the way when driving up to it during hookup to keep from pinching them. I'll post a picture but it will be Monday before I can do that since I can't read my digital camera from this computer.

Thanks Kwshumm,

That would be a huge help. I can't wait to start using it. Do you know what approximate length your lines are?

They look to be right at 36 inches.

 Bodozer Grapple Questions

Can't thank you enough for the help. Your pictures are worth a thousand words!

Now I've just got to see if I can get the hoses on this week. My wife is 9 months+ pregnant, so this week my tractor project may be stalled for a couple of days.

Thanks again, Chris
