I think they are very handy.

I'd like one for the mini.

I think I'd prefer my grapple or even a thumb. What's the chance that you will be using that size bucket when you come across a rock to move?

Not a fan of thumbs on the mini. 4in1 is much more flexible than any fixed thumb.

I'm not a fan of thumbs either, but a proper grapple is a great bit of kit. You can't pick up brash or bundles of logs with a 4 in 1, for example. I borrowed from the hydraulic thumb concept for my grapple and how the stay bar is a hydraulic ram. This makes a huge difference in productivity, always being able to grab at the right angle.

I think about the only thing a 4 in 1 would be good for on my mini would be grabbing the last bit of soil, but you can usually clean up against the blade.

A project on the back burner is a set of clam sides for my grapple.

I have a 4in1 and a Selector grab with bolt on sides if I want to use it as a clam shell and I've only used the 4in1 once as the grab is so much better. Wish I had never bought the 4in1.

If you get one with solid back rather than bars you can use it as as clam shell as well if you bolt on sides. Two for one, almost a bargain!

Has anyone got any experience of the Bucket Warehouse/Hardlife selector grab? I'm considering one for a 6 tonner but don't know of anyone who has used/abused one yet.
