Thanks , I thought it looked stronger than the grabs with bolt in tines . Will be used mainly on wood so will have a hard life .We have one.
Works hard and somehow we haven’t trashed too many of the curved prongs or bust the hydraulic fittings too often
As an arable farmer, you’ll be fine
Ive got one identical to the one pictured above.only bought it to handle trees and logs which were cut down the wrong side of fence on meadows and easy to reach over with telehandler.dont do a massive amount but it’s faultless and makes my life easierThanks , I thought it looked stronger than the grabs with bolt in tines .

Oh congratulations on your new appointment.
Need to correct you there, it isn't a strimech grab, its made for JCB by Eastern attachments in Norfolk, You can also buy it branded as a Cherry Xform grab.
The OP picture does have hardox tines its a decent compromise, for a proper log grab then Albutt make a good one but it wont pick up muckRemember they are designed for muck, not timber.
I have a heavier duty one than that with hardox top and bottom and have bent tines moving timber.
