I spoke to my son (12 years old) a month back and asked him what would make going on the scrounge less work and easier.. He says to me that he would like a grapple bucket for the trac machine. I keep an older bobcat at my house for doing small projects. I was thinking a set of forks and a 1yd bucket. I have a set of forks and large buckets at my shop, but I have to bring them home every time I do a project and sometimes in the Spur-of-the-moment projects I dont have what I need at home.. So my son got a 78" grapple bucket, I got a set of forks and a 1yd bucket. Delivered from the manufacturer and saved 1k from buying from someone local. That savings included the freight to my house. 20201004_162756.jpg 20201004_162813.jpg 20201004_162821.jpg

I assume you meant 21 and not 12. The new stuff should make your life much easier!

Gotta be careful with grapples like those, they sure bend easy.
