I cut a slit in some pipe and welded that over the hard 90* cut edges on the frame, it protects the hoses better that spiral wrap and chafe sleeve alone. And boxing the backside of the small tine. Hoses are run the same way they came.Wow, the bmg mods are all coming out of the woodz, lol.
Doesn’t have to be a black grapple, any cylinder will do it. We leave our big grapple open an inch or so when disconnected, and it connects easier, but if it gets too warm in the sun, we sometimes have to crack a line loose to make it connect.I saw a video saying that a disconnected (black) grapple in the sun can build pressure, making it difficult to reconnect.
