I missed this whole thread for some reason. I had a 5203 and a 5065. Loved the 5065!!! It was my first cabbed tractor. It did everything but loader work. that was my 5203. My grapple was for cleaning cow pens, so it was built a little different. When I went up north and grain farmed, I eneded up using the grapple for the same thing you are... I could put the log in the grapple, cut it for firewood between the tines, then dumped it on the pile...
Those 5 series, in my opinion, are the perfect size!!!
