Add-A-Grapple Long Term Review And Working in the Woodyard

Foreign [Laughter] [Music] [Laughter] [Music] Hmm [Music] Hey it's Brock here from Rock Hill Farms And behind me is a mess And Over there's another mess Over there is another mess And up on top the hill is the King Kong Of big messes and what I'm referring to Is piles of brush and firewood that are Left over from trees I've cut down or Different projects I've worked on And it's kind of a natural consequence Of processing trees you're going to have Those big gnarly chunks of wood that are Hard to deal with And what I want to avoid is just leaving These messes piled all over so today We're going to get it sorted into usable Chunks I've got a bunch of wood that's Laying around here that isn't usable for Anything and just needs burned so we're Going to start going through it all First thing I want to look at here is Right by the splitter The last week I was out here splitting Firewood and this is all from the big Hackberry that I cut down right over Here

And I got about halfway through the pile and I started finding chunks of wood like This like this is almost weightless it's Like nothing and It's just soft it feels like Styrofoam Or something it's right on the edge of The where the center had rot rotted out And everything around it was bad so I've Got a whole bunch of that here that just Needs scooped up I'm going to take it up To the burn pile I've actually got a burn hole and it's Too windy to burn today but we're going To start filling that up and getting Ready for a bonfire If you just came here for a review of The Precision manufacturing out of Grapple that's about the last four Minutes of the video so you can skip Ahead if you want but also I've got one Humdinger of a firewood video here if You want to stick around I don't want to just throw everything Out because I found some bad ones in Here I want to go through and check it And some of it If I hit this right there it feels solid But this is all rotted right here That's Good about there A lot of junk though I was able to stab that in there across The grain

That's all junk That's a good piece of wood You can tell as soon as the ax hits it This one's bad Foreign [Applause] Okay [Applause] [Music] Thank you [Music] Foreign [Applause] [Music] Foreign You know sometimes I go to record a Video and I've got a new product or Something stuck in my crawl that I Really want to talk about and sometimes Like today so I'm just gonna go outside And work and if a video idea Pops in my Head that's what it'll be and today I Want to talk about that Adam grapple Has a sponsored product that was given To me but man I think for what it costs And what you can do with it pretty darn Good deal but I'll we'll talk about that At the end [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Applause] Foreign I'd love to get every bit of it with the

Grapple but some of this is dried up Against stuff and also as I was sorting The good and the bad I put some of the Good stuff up here so Sometimes you just got to get off the Machine and pick it up by hand I've been taking this Punky wood that's no good for firewood I just been throwing it up there in the Burn pit We've got a fire pit up here be good for That stuff will burn in a bonfire Anything else I find like that is going Down to the fire pit Foreign [Applause] [Music] I've had a lot of comments asking for Pond updates so here we go it's up maybe A foot from how low it got Foreign All of this was dry you could walk out Way out there previously Foreign [Music] [Applause] Foreign I was thinking maybe I would just sort Stuff today and get brush over here and Rounds over there but I think I'd feel a lot better if I Actually made some of this disappear so I'm going to grab chaps and a chainsaw Go ahead and buck this one up we'll fire

The splitter up and actually get some of This out of here instead of just moving The piles around They say that you don't know what you've Got until it's gone That's very true with my new hickey my Bopper here Accumark It's magnet that goes on the bar your Chainsaw shows you where to 16 inches Falls so you can make your cuts and I Broke it last time I used it I think I Stepped on it or something this is just A hollow tube here and cracked it and Then it went ahead and broke Luckily I had enough duct tape we're going to Get through this together Otherwise what was I going to do Estimate or Get a tape measure Some of you guys run those 16 inch bars You got your built-in measuring device It's usually three pulls and then it Starts [Music] Foreign [Music] [Music] Foreign [Music] [Laughter] Hmm [Music]

[Laughter] [Music] Ons Laughs [Music] First pull every time Thank you Foreign All right Foreign [Music] [Applause] [Applause] [Music] Foreign Once before actually showed it up close And ain't she a beaut you see on there Might have a shadow on it it says Rock Hill Farm right there Love it [Music] Okay [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] Foreign [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] Foreign Foreign [Music]

Foreign [Music] I've been using this out of grapple About long enough I think it's time to Tell you what I think of it because I Always say it's fine to give a review of Something the day you get it but makes a Lot more sense a year later so That being said I would still highly Recommend this product So compared to uh premium grapple it's Not quite as nice so if I actually did What I said I was going to do at the Start of the video and rearranged all The wood piles on the property and Sorted it all that would be more Efficient with the artillion grapple But that grapple's like four thousand Dollars And so it all depends When my friend Waldo we showed his Tractor And I kind of raved about I liked his Tires better I liked his third function Better the four in one bucket the Hydraulic thumb with the backhoe And he had a really nice setup but his Entire tractor package was like seventy Three thousand dollars And there's a lot of guys out there who Would Prefer to allocate their resources to uh You know fifteen thousand dollar used Kubota or uh 30 25 e John Deere or a

Little Mahindra Something that doesn't cost near that Much you know and save a few dollars And maybe not owe as much to John Deere Financial And I see a lot of sense in that so if You're looking to be that guy and be Smart with your money then buying this This has a retail of 995 dollars Now I don't know what it is after taxes And shipping it might be 12 1300 I don't Know but that's about a third of what Some of the premium grapples cost you Can go to that same company Precision Manufacturing and get a diverter valve For like five hundred dollars And you're up and going with a grapple At a fair price And I there's a lot of appeal And you want a product in every category You want the Ultra Premium Feature Rich option And a mid-grade And the economy option Because if you only put 50 hours a year On your tractor you might want to think About how much you really spend on it so That being said I've used this I've used It a lot I've used it for a lot of Different things stuff like you saw Today stuff that the average person Watching this is likely to do their Selves Not had any problems with it nothing's

Bent or pins falling out I don't ever think about it it just Works so I'd recommend it if you're Interested in getting one of these go to I'll put the link in the Description use code Rock Hill five no We changed the code I believe the code Now is just Rock Hill and that'll get You five percent off of this setup Which if you got this add a grapple With the diverter and shipping and Everything probably going to spend save Around 80 to 100 little if I can do Quick math in my head while I'm talking So anyway I appreciate you taking time To watch this video I'll put links on The screen to a couple more of our Videos and I'll see you next time
