Im about to head back down to the new orleans area (home for me) to start debris/tree cleanup. Found a grapple bucket forsale by my brothers house. Its a 66" Versatech semolition grapple. Double cylinder. Great shape just needs new hydro hoses from the bucket to machine. Guy was asking $2k i got him to bottom dollar at $1500. Anyone have expierence with rhis brand? I alteady priced a set of hoses so tht part is taken care of.

For 1500 bucks I don't think you can go wrong, I really like the bobcat brand attachments in my experience.

I've had one for a few years now. Good bucket, had to add some bracing but will work great. I use mine for moving down trees and such. The lines need replacing every 2 years or so depending on how often you use it. It is just a high rub area and stuff is always catching on them. Best of luck down there

I have had a versatech grapple for a few years. good product. mine is a full grapple not bucket style. Did manage to break a tine but rewelded it and braced it. much better now. Good Luck,

This hurricane has really got the gears in my head spinning thinking of using the stormwater/erosion business as a step towards a full blown flooding/storm disaster reaponse company.

probably with that is would there be enough business to do it all the time? unless you got into fire cleanups ect too

How do you bill out for that type of clean up? You work for fema, general contractors, or property owners?
