Robert Spring –
I have owned a scorpion 1300 for about 9 years, and I have never had a moment of regret. I can’t imagine any more useful implement of any sort for tractor or skid steer. The unit works flawlessly for skidding, moving, sorting, stacking, etc. In the time I have had it, the grapple has had about 2000 hrs put on it (tractor hrs where main purpose was grappling). I use it on my logging jobs, mainly on the landing for processing trees, sorting and stacking,, but it spends plenty of time in the woods doing several actions to speed my logging. Such as: (1) moving tree ends around to better facilitate pulling a hitch out with very minimal impact to residual stand. (2) prebunching, and or just pulling smaller trees trailside for easier hitch hookup. Pulling is done with unit on either end – stronger pull when mounted on 3 pt hitch, lighter pull with front loader, but so much more finesse when mounted up front. Best setup is one on each end of tractor! (unfortunately, wouldn’t apply to skid steer)

I love it so much, I am considering purchasing another!, especially if Hudson were to bring one to Bangor show in May for a good price, and willing to make one small concession to me regarding the unit!
