 Need a grapple rake for my FEL

I have a lot of brush piles and small logs to move. I am interested in getting a grapple rake type of attachment for my JD 4310 w/20 FEL. I have seen the Bodozer grapple that kwschumm has. Here are my questions: 1. What other options are out there? 2. How much will I have to spend? 3. How do I hook up the hydraulics? 4. How do I control the opening and closing of the jaws? Thanks for your input.

What Ken has is probably one of the best available although there are other brands. The extra line to operate it could be run to an extra remote on the rear of the tractor.

What controller operates it? Does it come with a joystick or lever that gets mounted somewhere?

It replaces the bucket, and the normal loader joystick raises and lowers it and tilts it. Then you need a third SCV to open and close the jaws. JD supplies those and it's controlled by a lever that mounts in the slot in the right panel next to the seat. I don't know about your 420 loader - does it have a quick attach bucket?

I just finished my kill 2 birds grapple/ fork combo. I don't know if you have welding capabilities, but having forks as well seemed like a good idea. I will use the forks more, no doubt. Pics 15-20

Denwood: Would the fork set up work on 4110. I have a lot of log work that now I cut up small and pick up with bucket, If I had folks and clamp set it would make my life better.

Thanks

Roger

I am sure it would work maybe a scaled down version since yours is a small frame machine, you don't want to use all the lift cap. on the grapple alone. If you built one like mine, I would build the grapple to match 36 inch or shorter forks, maybe even home made forks for the grapple and real forks at whatever length you choose for pallets etc. I used 42 inch forks and matched the grapple to them. With the sliding rail pallet fork frame, the possible add ons are nice too. The forks come off and I plan on adding a sliding reciever hitch, as well as a carriage with a caster wheel on the front to carry my little wonder leaf blower. I am tired of pushing it around the yard and drive, and a 3 point hitch PTO model is very expensive. What else could be added? A lift boom, a bale spear? The grapple/carraige is very versatile and really kills more than 2 birds. A manufacturing company has even asked me to bring it in for them to look at.

The 420 FEL does have a quick attach bucket. I have no welding equipment or experience, and really don't have the time to learn, so I will have to buy something. Several grand for one like yours, Ken? Ordinarily, I would just have to make do with the bucket and chain hooks, but I really have alot of work to do clearing brush and debris, and not much free time. Anybody think I would come out better paying a local welder to fabricate something? I'm not looking for bells and whistles or style points, just something that will do the job.

Ardician, perhaps you should consider a grapple add on for your bucket. Check out this site http://www.preseeder.com/attachments/grapple.cfm It may be more cost effective, strong and easy. I will probably add one to my bucket also.

Thanks for the link, Denwood. It looks interesting. I emailed their sales dept. about locating a local dealer.
