“I have a Virnig (made in Minnesota) 72". Awesome grapple bucket, running on a 3000+ lb. machine and am confident I cannot break or bend it.” (Source)


“You will not buy any better attachments than Virnig Attachments. I have set of Virnig Pallet Forks, 2 Rock Buckets, Snow Bucket, Utility Bucket, Bale Spear, and just ordered a new Material Bucket. The pound rating for Virnig Pallet Forks Are 3930 lb or 6200 lbs. I order a new skid loader with out bucket never had a factory one last more than 4 to 6 months. Virnig bucket only needed to replace cutter edge.” (Source)


“Have a grapple on a 289C Cat around 85 horse I think. I'm not sure how to spell it, Virnig I believe, heavily built and two separate grapples. A lot easier than picking sticks and limbs by hand!” (Source)


“I would suggest Virnig without hesitation. I spent 25+ years in the skid loader attachment industry and at one time sold Virnig Attachments through my company. Excellent products at very fair prices. You might be able to find something less expensive but you won’t find better value than Virnig Attachments. (I no longer have any ties with the company so I have nothing to gain by recommending them).” (Source)
