Very impressive
Thanks for watching and the comment +Michael Cooke III!  We have really enjoyed using the grapple and it by far and away is the most used attachment that we currently have.  We continue to find new uses for it.  Thanks again for watching!!!

Hi +sergio champion, thanks for watching! The rear hydraulics (and box) was installed by our John Deere dealership before we purchased the tractor. The dealership had this unit set up as a demo and intended to remove the rear hydraulics when they sold it but we knew that there would be many uses for it in the future.

Great videos. I have the same tractor and grapple set up and love it. With the ballast box on the rear we pick up 20 foot logs by the end and hang them over the trailer to saw into firewood size pieces, way more safe and easier than cutting on the ground. Have also used the CTA grapple to till up my garden. Our dog also helps with our tractor work. The 3038 is a great machine, I'm impressed with its power and performance every time we take it out.
Thanks for watching Iam Badger! We have truly enjoyed our 3038e and continue to find more uses for the grapple. I hope to use it this fall for cutting wood as well. I like the idea of putting the log right over the trailer and cutting it there. Enjoy!

Looks impressive! So far so good?
Thanks +Brett Harrison! So far so good with the grapple. I'm impressed with the quality of construction. We continue to find projects and needs for this piece of equipment.
