I'm no expert, but I'm thinking that a 1500 lb. actuator is not nearly strong enough to run a bucket grapple. Even a little 2" hydraulic cylinder running at 1000 psi (which is low) will have more than twice the force. If you don't want to add another hydraulic circuit, the pinnable (mechanical) grapple may be your best option. I can't see an electrical actuator working very well at all, but I've certainly been wrong before.
