    Hauler (called "Hauler" in his one appearance) joined Ratchet and Cliffjumper in recovering Hound from the bottom of a ravine. He never spoke or transformed to robot mode. He was also yellow, which made him look like Grapple. Later, during a spiritual journey through the Matrix of Leadership, Rodimus Prime was shown a vision of eight Constructicons creating Megatron. The identities of the two extra Constructicons remains unknown, though quite possibly one might be Hauler.

    Do you think this is possible, do you think he was just in one episode and thats it, or do you have other thoughts on him?
    I would like to know, because, I have no idea.

    The common belief is that it's a misnamed Grapple.

    [FANON]I personally think that Hauler and Grapple were the same individual with no relation to the constructicons.[/FANON/]

    PS. For future reference, use tf.wiki instead of transformers.wikia.com, the latter has some seriously bad editors.

    I have eHooby Hauler, and he's neither a Con nor another Grapple. His Bio says he can be any color he wants to be. He just happens to be green.

    Hauler and Grapple are the same character. Much like Broadside and even Cyclonus who had some alternate animation models used in episodes, Hauler is in the same boat, it's just that he was far more ambiguous as to his real identity rather then the others clearly being different animation models.

    I buy the defected Constructicon angle, but ultimately it is Grapple before they made him Grapple.

    Alright, I guess that makes sense.

    Ya, it could of been possible but I guess everyone says Grapple and Hauler are the same.

    If that's Hauler/Grapple, then who's the green dude at the back?

    As the series was establishing itself, there were many many generic bots to be seen throughout, especially in the pilot.

    Who knows why Hauler was changed to Grapple? Someone must, but they ain't round here to tell us (at least officially).

    If he were colored green I'd believe him to be a defected constructicon. But, as it stands I say he is a mis-named Grapple.
