Tine Grabs

    Hello  I am looking at a tractor loader tine grab for  a 4wd 140 hp tractor  which has a max lift of approx  1,5 tonnes. Having narrowed it down to a Nugent or Wylie  which have no back plate and I can see the fork tips as the tractor visibility is poor. I think that the tractor should be able to handle a six or six and  half foot one for cleaning out dung in sheds The Nugent is 100kilos lighter than the Wylie  which is an advantage if it is strong enough. Also I see the polish ones Sterko which look Heavy Duty but I have  no experience of Polish Machinery. Thanks for any feedback.

    A 140hp tractor will deal with any 6 1/2 ft grab. I wouldn't over think it really. I have seen the sonarol implements and they are also Polish as far as I know. They look like good solid implements. I think GrasstoMilk may have a sonarol bucket grab and will probably give you a run down on it.

    6 .5 ft time grab full is a fair weight for any tractor depending on how much feeding is going on
