In the world of compact utility tractors, the Frontier MG20F grapple stands out as a remarkably efficient attachment for John Deere's 1, 2, and 3 series utility tractors. Unlike traditional grapples, the MG20F doesn't use hydraulic functions for mechanical operation, leveraging the tractor's existing bucket cylinders. This unique approach not only simplifies operations but also significantly reduces overhead.

Mechanical Grapple Functionality

 

The MG20F's ingenuity is its use of the tractor's bucket cylinders to control the grapple's clamping mechanism. This design allows for seamless integration with the tractor's existing controls, providing a straightforward and intuitive operation for picking up and moving material.

 


 

Build and Specifications

 

Constructed from 218 pounds of durable steel, the MG20F features a robust design with six tines on both the top and bottom sections. This configuration, coupled with strategically placed notches, ensures efficient material handling and debris sifting. The grapple spans 54 inches in width and can open up to 36 inches, accommodating a wide range of tasks.

 

 

 

 

 

Attachment System

 

Designed for compatibility with John Deere's quick attach system, the MG20F offers hassle-free attachment to the loader. This ease of use extends to its protective features, which shield the loader boom from potential damage during operation.

 

 

 

 

 

Practical Utility and Versatility

 

From yard cleanup to managing fence posts or even small-scale land clearing, the MG20F proves its worth as a versatile tool. Its mechanical nature does not detract from its utility; instead, it provides a cost-effective solution for tractor owners who wish to avoid the additional expense of hydraulic modifications.

 

 

 

 

 

Cost Benefits

 

One of the most appealing aspects of the MG20F is its affordability. By eliminating the need for a third-function hydraulic system, the MG20F becomes accessible to a wider range of tractor owners, offering significant savings without sacrificing performance.
