Picture 11: Grapple schematic
The lower arm is bolted to where the stabilizer legs you fold out on FEL removal are usually pinned to. The rear bolt with lock simply takes the slop out of the lower arm by pushing the rear down and the arm front up against the loader arm.

What I do for a living.
Picture 13: Home sweet home
This is the second house I have built. I just kept drawing different designs until I had one my wife and I liked. I did everything but the foundation, brickwork, plumbing and heating.
Picture 14: Back side
The garage is my present shop and is filled with my projects (dubbed junk by the wife). Three out of four sliding glass window panels are visible. They let in tons of light for working.

90 acres, 1/2 wooded with trout ponds. I was born in the house on this farm (1954) so this land is really part of me. The ponds were commercial until 1985 and since then the beavers have dammed the outlet causing high water levels and stagnation. I hope to use the backhoe to remove the dam whenever the beavers rebuild so that I can get the water back to the condition needed for trout.
