 implement for picking up brush

i'm trying to devise a implement for lifting up brush to move it to a pile for burning.. has anyone ever seen something that can be used on the front of a tractor in place of the bucket besides forks.. i bought an old dung bucket and plan on making a contraption that will pick up brush that was cut with a brush saw..it needs to grab it not just lift it.. i'd like to see something like this before i start...

 implement for picking up brush

There are 2 items that I have seen to move brush. On is a set of forks with a hydraulic operated arms over the top that close on the brush. The other is a 4 in 1 loader bucket. There are pictures of both in the URL I finally found.

 implement for picking up brush

Check the john Deere website, I bought a grapple attachment for picking up brush that fits a 5000 series loader and easily adapted it to my model 725 Deere loader. It could probably be adapted to your loader too. I moved lots of brush with it this fall, and it worked great. You do however need a third hydraulic outlet on the tractor to operate the grapple cylinders.

A consideration is whether the grapples raise high enough so the loader bucket can be used normally to scoop stuff up. I'm not sure that any of these type grapples can do that. However, I believe that grapples can be easily removed on the unit sold by Carver. It would be good to build that sort of feature into a homegrown one.

Tom I mounted the grapple so that two pins and two hyd couplers will take it off. You can do regular loader work with it on, but it's a little clumbsy

 implement for picking up brush

i'm thinking just a bucket type will work fine for what i have in mind i don't need to spin the load around like a logging grapple might do.. if you ever tried to move brush around with the bucket even after you piled it you know what i'm talking about.. my brother has a fork setup on his valmet and it works great for lifting logs but brush is mostly small diameter .. i'm clearing a field of alders and small pine that my bushog can't handle.. this is a neat website and have gotton alot of info off it..thanks

 implement for picking up brush

We have orchards all around us and pushing brush is a big deal. There are several manufacturers in our area that make front mounted brush rakes. We recently built one ourselves that quick attaches to a Branson. I can send you a picture to your email if you would like. They are made for pushing and lifting already cut brush and prunings and work real well.

Email me if you want a picture of our design.
