EA 55" Wicked Root Rake Grapple

55 Inch Wicked Root Rake Grapple

Alternative Views:

EA’s Newest Grapple Rake is a Breakthrough at just over 200 pounds. This is BY FAR the BEST strength to weight ratio in the industry. Incredibly strong construction with solid welds and added support in all the right areas gave us the confidence to test it on our 60HP Kubota L6060. We combine the best materials money can buy; a combo unlike anything else on the market. Large bore cylinders create an impressive clamping force so you can efficiently hold rocks, logs, stumps and other debris for transport. The serrated upper and lower, laser cut AR450 steel tines are serrated for incredible gripping and ripping ability. Available with Universal Quick Attach(SSQA), John Deere Quick Attach and some other pin on loader mounts. Rated for compact tractors under 40 horsepower.
If you want to push or pry trees/stumps/roots/boulders and other solid and/or embedded objects, do it with the lower tines.
Root rake top lid is designed for raking loose material backwards. With the new wickeder design, you can even pull or rake harder than before, but it is not meant to be pushed on as in pushing on trees with the lid. The new design allows it to have 20% more pulling and raking force, but if pushed on it is possible to tweak the lid. We have had a few out of 1,000 that have been tweaked, and after receiving pictures of the tweaked lids, it is clear they are using the lid to push trees which is unintended use. The warranty remains in 100% effect for pulling and clamping, but not pushing on trees or boulders. Here are a few pictures showing lids that we have replaced from pushing on trees.

*Notice* 8/6/2018 Instead of bolted lower runners, we will begin upgrading the lower tines with thick wall DOM tubing, which will serve as a depth gauge and add strength to lower tines. This will be more rigid and durable for rough applications.

*Primo Materials 101*

DOM, or Drawn Over Mandrel, tubing is made from a cold-drawn electrical resistance welded tube that is drawn through a die and over a mandrel to create dimensional accuracy, dependable weld integrity and an excellent surface finish(which we manually scuff so the paint will hang on). DOM has high tensile and yield strength, so It is generally chosen over welded tube where high pressure or large workloads are needed such as the manufacturing of race cars and motorcycle frames.

*NEW Enhanced, Laminated Lower Tine Design*
**Strongest in the Industry, by a LONG Shot**

4 of 5 Nice Grapple September 28, 2022
Reviewer: D Schoch from Leslie, MI United States  
I purchased this grapple in February, 2022. Received in July, 2022 about a month earlier than quoted. I wanted to use this grapple for a few months before I officially reviewed it.

Pros: Couldn't have asked for a more capable grapple and would purchase again without question. This thing is a beast and could take a whole lot more than my B2601 can throw at it.

Cons: All the hydraulic couplers/fittings leaked on the grapple. Fixed those by using thread tape. Currently have a leaking hydraulic cylinder (Will be calling in a warranty claim for this). The lid squeaked on every closure until about 10 hours of use and a tube of grease.

Note: I would've given 5 stars easily if the hydraulic couplers/fittings would have had a bit more attention during the installation process.
EA RESPONSE:  What we're seeing is far from typical.  Because we use NPT fittings, they're all supposed to be sealed with pipe dope, and it generally holds verrry good, but things can happen.   Concerning the cylinder, we'll be glad to send a new one, easy.   Hope you enjoy the Wickedness.  Thanks for the business and feedback.

5 of 5 EA 55” Wicked Grapple September 23, 2022
Reviewer: KARL PLOG from SUAMICO, WI United States  
Unit arrived on schedule and great condition. Installed the 3rd function hydraulics and put the grapple to work. It performed well and held up to some pretty heavy material grabs that I made. Completely satisfied!!!

5 of 5 Wow !!! September 19, 2022
Reviewer: Brian Parker from Chicora, PA United States  
First weekend with my new grapple and I love it!!  Cut some trees down and typically would have cut into about 4' sections and fought with the branches and brush for days.  Drop a tree, cut into 20 foot sections, grab and go.  So simple.  I even picked up individual sticks, cement blocks and railroad ties.  With a little practice you can pick something up and not do any damage to anything.  This is so much more useable than just owning a loader bucket.
