My current battery is an Interstate marine type. Its 4 years old and needs charging between dumps. I'm hearing I need a type of battery that has some type of "reserve capacity"????

Looking for a replacement battery for my 14' dump trailer. Who's running what and what are the recommendations? My trailer does not see daily use so I do not have a trickle charge to it from my truck. Thanks!

I bought mine from this place http://wildkatattachments.com/grapples.html
It works ok but looks like they cut all the metal with a torch and hand weld everything. When I bought mine, I called them and they gave me a much better price than what was shown on their site.

I am not sure how they compare to the Titan. I went with it instead of the Titan because it was made in USA and the Titan was made in China. I am guessing the Titan fit and finish may be better but I don't really care that much about looks on something like this.

The 72" #6 from your link is damn near identical to the 72" Titan. Costs about the same as well. Looks dont matter to me either altho I question the "made in the usa"on a lot of things. Very well maybe ASSEMBLED here in the U S of A but using "Chinese steel" as some call it. Who knows? Thanks for the link

I was going to revive the 2016 thread but thought better of it as things have changed and the cost of steel has went up.....or at least that's what it looks like by the price of the new grapples.

I have an old 60" Titan root grapple with the double thumbs. Solid grapple, a little bent up but no complaints. It has the greasable pivot points and cost me a little under $900 shipped back about 8 years ago. The same grapple now is $1579 shipped.

So my question is who is running what and what did you pay including freight? Im looking for a 72" or bigger with double thumbs and greasable pivot points. Reason being I have a bigger machine now.Titan has this one:


I'd like to stay under $2k     

Regulations / The Letter.......
« on: March 24, 2018, 06:37:07 PM »
At least someone is trying.

He says he sent this to President Trump this past week and "If you desire, please feel free to copy any part of our letter and contact your congressman, senators, and also President Trump yourself.  The more they hear from us, the more likely we are to restore our freedoms!"
Dear President Trump:

It seems that for the EPA, “even wood isn’t green or renewable enough anymore”.

According to Forbes, “The EPA has recently banned the production and sale of 80 percent of America’s current wood-burning stoves, the oldest heating method known to mankind and mainstay of rural homes and many of our nation’s poorest residents. The agency’s stringent one-size-fits-all rules apply equally to heavily air-polluted cities and far cleaner plus typically colder off-grid wilderness areas such as large regions of Alaska and the American West.”

President Trump, I am one of your strongest supporters. I now represent a large group of the wood burning industry, and I would like to request that you reverse these EPA regulations on our industry, which went into effect January 2016. These regulations are described in detail here:  https://www.epa.gov/residential-wood-heaters/final-new-source-performance-standards-residential-wood-heaters

It is much wiser to institute these regulations on a local level, such as in urban areas. The EPA under President Obama greatly overreached by instituting these regulations on a national level. At one hearing I attended, participants from rural Michigan demonstrated (rather embarrassingly for the EPA) how people who burn wood live in rural areas where they do not have access to cheap natural gas, and they live in areas that are not densely populated; therefore, emissions from burning this renewable fuel are harmless. Note that wood burning is “carbon neutral”, since the carbon dioxide emitted from wood burning equals the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the tree when it was growing.

This wood burning industry consists of 2.4 million homes (12 percent of all homes) that burn wood as their primary heating fuel. The industry also consists of over 50 manufacturers, although due to this recent EPA regulations, some of these manufacturers have exited the industry, many through bankruptcy.

I see that your administration is removing EPA regulations that are harmful to the American economy. This article lists 67 rules your administration is removing: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/10/05/climate/trump-environment-rules-reversed.html

I would like to request that you add these wood burning regulations to your list of EPA regulations that you will reverse.

Please let me know – I have over 60,000 customers who follow my new company and I would like to inform them via our newsletters and announcements of your willingness to reverse these regulations.

Thank you,
Warren Walborn
President & CEO


Here's my shed I built to house the boiler.  16' x 24'  salt box style shed.

Open on 1 side, and closed the other 3.  I used 5/4 deck boards around the wood to create a corn crib effect, allowing air to circulate all the way around.  The 3rd bay is general outdoor storage.
Nice shed but around here with one open side it be blown full of snow and you would have to shovel it first  not to mention your wood be covered with snow

Where is "here"?
