Amongst my array of Rata attachments I have a 1.6m Rata Versatile Grapple.
This is now 5 years old and I wouldn’t be without it!
It is awesome on trees, logs, firewood, rocks and silage.
I also use it for blading, root raking, ditch cleaning and I can even dig a hole with it.
Wonder how I got by without it – Recommended to all!!

I purchased a 1.8m wide Rata Versatile Grapple in 2014 to fit to a 12 ton digger after having heard that they were good machines, from some other users. The main purpose I wanted a machine like this was for cleaning up logs and branches but have since found that I have used it for unloading pipes, moving rocks including two ton sandstone and root raking surface stones. Not only is the Versatile Grapple built strong, it’s also easy to use, so I would say its money well spent, its magic!

The Rata Versatile Grapple is the best attachment for any loader, I have it on my 105HP Johnny all the time!
Use it for carrying big bales when feeding out, then clean up leftover feed and take it home to the pumpkin patch.
Awesome for cleaning up rubbish, branches, boulders or holding logs when cutting firewood, then pick up the split wood and take it to the shed.
Endless uses - Every man and his dog that has a tractor should have one!

My VG160 is one of the best investments in farm machinery I've made. On a 85hp MF it has allowed me to clean up a multitude of those "I must do that...." jobs. Within an hour of getting it, those jobs were done and then started on the neighbour's cleanup too. Although easy to attach and detach on euro hitch, it's become the default implement on the FEL and is only taken off when I need the bucket or pallet forks. I use it for clearing storm debris, handling boulders in stream ford repair, lifting firewood logs off ground to chainsaw at waist level, building huge fire piles from tree prunings and lots more.
