Versatech grapple??

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
