When it comes to landscaping and outdoor maintenance, having the right tools can significantly ease your workload. One such tool is the Frontier AV20F Root Grapple, designed specifically for the John Deere 1, 2, and 3 Series tractors. In this post, we'll delve into what makes the AV20F a game-changer for John Deere Compact Utility Tractor owners.






Compatibility with John Deere Tractors


As stated above, the AV20F is designed to pair with John Deere 1, 2, and 3 Series tractors. However, it's essential to note there is a requirement for a third function for the grapple, as it operates with a cylinder that controls the grapple's opening and closing.



Grapple Construction and Size


Weighing just over 200 lbs, the AV20F's is constructed from welded steel and designed for durability. It features four tines on the top and seven on the bottom, with 8.5 inches between each tine, allowing for efficient sifting of debris and dirt while in use. This design is ideal for tasks such as moving large items such as rocks or logs, or even brush cleanup, where you want smaller materials to fall through while securing larger items.



With a 53-inch width and a 36-inch opening between the top and bottom tines, the AV20F can handle a wide range of materials. Whether you're cleaning up the yard, picking up blocks, or removing tumbleweeds, its capacity and size make it a versatile tool for various tasks.





The grapple features the standard hookup for John Deere 1, 2, and 3 Series tractors, ensuring a hassle-free attachment process. It also comes with hydraulic hookups at the front, facilitating easy operation of the grapple mechanism.




Practical Utility and Personal Opinion


From personal experience, the addition of the AV20F to a compact utility tractor like the John Deere 1025R transforms it into a multifunctional tool. Whether you're uprooting small trees, digging, or just general yard cleanup, the AV20F's design and capabilities significantly enhance productivity and ease of work.






The Frontier AV20F Root Grapple is more than just an attachment; it's an essential upgrade for any small compact utility tractor owner looking to maximize their machine's utility. Its construction, compatibility with John Deere tractors, and practical utility make it a valuable investment for a wide range of outdoor tasks
