“I live in Oklahoma and purchased an ANBO GR-M grapple and diverter valve. I am very happy with the quality of this product and the customer service from Anbo manufacturing. After searching many hours on the internet this was the only 6′ grapple I found under 500 pounds that was also made of AR400 steel, had greasable pins and 48″ opening. I did the first tree job today with the grapple and saved 2 hours of job time and used one less worker to save in labor cost. This unit is awesome thanks ANBO.”
Recent Customer testimonial 2015:
Just a quick consumer report on my grapple.
I’m the President of an RV park here in Bastrop county that sustained major tornado and flooding damage Memorial Day. Hundreds of trees down. I have used the grapple every day since, and everyone who sees it in action is dazzled! I have it on a 47-HP Kubota, and the weight and volume it can pick up is nothing short of amazing. I have safely removed trees from buildings and power lines. We would be overwhelmed without it. I continue to be very happy with my decision to buy my ANBO grapple. Thank you for an outstanding product!

10 Tough Jobs for Your Grapple
We asked our customers if they liked their ANBO Grapple. They gave us 10 reasons to love it.
- Clear Brush
I recently bought a large plot of land and needed a tool capable of clearing brush quickly and efficiently. My GRS has cleared nearly 15 acres in no time! With the ANBO Grapple, you get what you pay for.”
– Chris C., Elkon, NC.
- Dig Stumps
“I own a hazardous tree removal company. We did a job where we had to remove 32 trees from a property. The GRS made it quick and relatively easy.”
– Travis M., Sandpoint, ID.
- Clean Fence Lines
I bought my GRS for fence line cleanup and demolition. So far, so good…not a single complaint!”
– Roger M., Two Rivers, WI.
- Rake Debris
“I love what this product does! After windstorms come through I rake my land with it…incredibly easy. It does everything I want it to do.”
– Allen S., Waterloo, IL.
- Dispose of Dead Trees
“I just got it…and I’m already playing with it. I’ve gotten rid of some nasty dead trees and cleaned up the yard a bit.”
– Bill F., Tullahoma, TN.
- Move…almost anything!
“Whatever I can grab in those wide-mouthed jaws…I can move it. Honestly, it moves almost anything.”
– Mike N., Raymond, MI.
- Transport Hay
“I’ve been moving hay and brush piles with it. It has a great grasp and makes the job easy and efficient. I’m happy with it.”– Joe W., Emporia, KS.
- Stock Pile
“Once we get these attachments in our store, word of mouth will sell them no problem; they’re so durable and capable. A lot of our customers say they’re the premiere tool for stock piling.”
– Kevin B., owner of Blesch Brothers, Holland, IN.
- Lift Rocks
“I’ve tested my ANBO Grapple, that’s for sure. I’ve grabbed large rocks…the steel flexes, and goes right back into place. I’m very impressed with the steel.”
– George M., Sandpoint, ID.
- Pull Steel Posts on Fence Lines
“I really do everything I want to do with it. It’s the only tool I’ve found that can pull a steel post on a fence line.”
– Shane B., Tarkio, MO.
“I have two Anbo attachments: one for a Bobcat S185 and one for a Cat 252B. They’re especially great for cleaning out old fence lines. I would recommend these any time — they’re as useful as a pocket on a t-shirt!”
“I have had the GR-M attached to my Kubota L3540 for a couple of weeks now and very impressed. I figured I would have to baby the unit because it is lighter weight and I wanted to stay that way because I have 1400 lb loader at the end of bucket. Well let me say that it is one tough unit and very
impressed with the type of steel used and its ability to withstand banging around large logs. I had a potential customer call me and ask me how I liked it and told him I like it much better than expected.”
“Rec’d my Grapple rake today. It is very well built and I am impressed. Used it for about 4 hours today, and have lots more work ahead. Wore some paint off the times. The JD mount fits correctly on both tractors and the Pioneer couplings are what I needed for my JD 5085 M. This is a great product and I am glad I bought it………!! It will get a lot of use on our farm, doing a lot of clearing and cleanup of Hardwood slash and brush. Thanks again.”
Sincerely Jeff Zimmerman
” I can pick whatever I want with it (GR-L), from stumps as big as people to brush, without picking up dirt. It`s great for grubbing out stumps and roots, and can do the work of five men moving and stacking logs in our firewood business. ”
” Using the grapple rake, I was able to pull up the juniper by the roots so it would not grow back–right from its rocky outcroppings. My loader has a push force of about 6,000 lbs. and several times I stalled it pushing on big rocks, but the grapple rake was fine. It`s strong enough to handle whatever you throw at it. ”
B. Chapman, CO
” The grapple rake is strong enough to pick up anything your machine is capable of. Unlike bucket jaws that essentially pinch, the grapple rake wraps around a load. Its teeth and curvature are better for grabbing and grasping. It operates like a hand and gives much better control and holding power. ”
T. Hauptman, LA
” I ended up taking out 215 cubic yards of slash and debris, and loaded in onto trailers in about 100 hours. It`s great at back-racking, grabbing, stacking, piling, whatever you need. Not only did I save over $ 10,000 in labor, but also lowered my insurance from $23,000 to $4,000 annually. I don`t know how I`d have done the job any other way. ”

I am the proud owner of an 8′ STLB since Jan 2006. It has been the tool for pushing snow.I own one pair of box ends, but would like a quote for another pair. I can testify that the box ends are as advertised. They greatly improve pushing the snow efficiently. My problem is that they sometimes get a bend in the end hitting curbs and such. I want another pair to have in the reserve until the bent ones can be straightened. I also own a 6′ grapple since March, 2005. Your stuff is tough and built to last.
