thats a good tool to have I use my grapple all the time although I wish it was the kind w/ the shovel bucket instead of the tines , for doing the clean ups on new construction sites cause all the lil stuff ends up falling thru the tines but its the bomb for doing tree work.picked up a tree job today gonnna do this week , well I hope I got it they gonna let me know in a day or two ... been dead right now with all the rain , and I am 100% self employed now ....

I'm with ya, David; I've used a root grapple before and much prefer the "shovel" like regular grapple bucket. However, $1500 is a hellova deal, Jacob!

hey jacob I was working out their in belle chase today and passed right by chauvin bros on lapalco , those mustangs look like their in good shape , I like that big mtl25 w/ the dozer blade , they had 2 fighter jets flying over real low where I was working today , I must have been real close to the naval station , cause their was all kinds of activity , choppers , jets etc... Glad to hear your staying busy with your new machine , you'll have it paid for in no time now ...

We've been staying busy enough, I guess... This time of the year we should be rockin' and rollin', but instead we're scrapping by week by week. I think the economy (or the media's portrayal of the economy) has finally began to influence us... Hopefully it'll get better in the near future

Glad to hear that all you boys are doing well, though!
