Hi, I'm Ted from Everything Attachments, and we're today with a new Wicked Grapple. This is the largest one that we built so far to go in the larger tractors from about 60 horsepower in the heavy utility tractors, all the way to about 125 horsepower 2 or 4-wheel drive. And this has been really made for a tractor, not a skid steer. There're some things that could come into play on a skid steer that we don't wanna guarantee that it'll work because my brother specializes in skid steer attachments and construction attachments, and one of the things I know that on a Bobcat that I've used from him, he lacks just barely clearing his cylinder mouths and so forth with a cabbed unit.
So we know we've raised these, and so for a Bobcat and some other ones they may not fit, so we're making sure that we say that they're only for tractors, and if you wanna try 'em on a skid steer that's not on me. But we've added a lot of things to this grapple. We've added this to all of our grapples but this is the first one we've shown with the new grading in here behind it to keep large limbs and stuff from going into the grill of your tractor and messing with your hoses. We didn't wanna make it any finer than this because it's gonna clog up, it's gonna be harder to see through, so we figured that's a good medium for you to still be able to see through and give you some protection. It does have the full plates behind it here, this is a standard skid steer style, quick attach that is now normally on a tractor. A lot of the larger tractors are going to Euro hitches, so we do have the Euro Global and the John Deere Euro Global hitch that also would work on this grapple.
We've taken 2 half-inch pieces of grade 50 steel, laminated 'em together to 1 inch to give you a good, solid post here with gussets for your pushing power down on these grapples. Because with the...we've increased the stroke to 10 inches and got the geometry right, where you're really gonna have a lot of crimping power on this grapple. We've put our standard hose saver kit with the swivel fittings on it, so you don't have to use longer hoses than you need to. If your tractor has the lines up on the side of the grapple like some Kubotas do, then you're gonna need longer lines than [SP] to the center of the torque tube. So you need to let our salesmen know that if you're not at the center of the torque tube of your tractor. These are standard half-inch agricultural fit fittings, that's what it'll come with, unless you tell us something different. And I'm gonna hook these together just so when I get around to the other side I can lift the lids.
Just about everything on this grapple is grade 50 half-inch thick, except for these little tines on the back. As you can see, we've left a really wide opening here, the outer tine is solid, all of the other tines do have the holes in 'em. Even though it's going on a large tractor, tractors don't have a huge amount of lift in comparison to some things. Even on 125 tractor, some of the lifts are between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds, which if you put a 2,000 pound grapple on it, it's just not gonna leave a lot left. We've been able to make this grapple really heavy-duty but got the weight down to the 900 pound range. We've also got it where we have 40...over 42 inches of opening height to be able to get the really large stuff in. Since we cut with lasers instead of plasma at Everything Attachments, we've put these grippers here where you can pull on logs, limbs, things like that. We've also... And we'll show you a picture of this in the video, these plates that actually bolt down onto the center gussets are razor sharp and when wedged into saplings and small brush and stuff like that, it's gonna give you the ability to pull 'em out of the ground easier. Those plates are removable if you don't wanna use 'em or just want a wider opening.
With this 10 inch stroke and the geometry raised in the back, this is gonna give you a ton of gripping force and clamping force. And we've got these formed [SP] gussets on the lid here where the metal's really high. We've added extra metal to keep 'em from twisting. These formed gussets here just make these lids really, really strong. So at Everything Attachments, if you'll just give a call or an email, we'll be happy to make sure that you get the right grapple for your tractor and your application.
