    Kubota B21TLB

    Default B21TLB FEL bucket quick coupler...?

    Does anyone have or seen a FEL bucket quick coupler for a B21TLB? I would like to purchase a pallet fork setup, and configure my FEL to be able to quickly interchange between the forks and the bucket. My local dealer said that he could not find one from kubota, but I have seen them on B2910's and they look pretty slick. I do not see why they would not offer it for a B21.

    I could make a quick coupler if needed, but if Kubota does not offer it, I suspect there must be a reason. Perhaps my dealer just forgot to flip the page over, but any thoughts or comments on the matter would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    -Brian

    our nh tc33d has a setup like your talking about.
    it is made by ati. i think kasko(sp?) also makes them.
    our setup allows us to use skid steer type attachments
    which is nice because you can usually find used attachments
    for them(buckets,forks,ect..)

    I have a <font color=orange>kubota</font color=orange> Quick Coupler. It works very well on my 2910. Check out the thread on this attachment.

    It depends on how you use your tractor. If you want to be able to use some of the attachments that skid loaders use, then look at the ATI. The one drawback is the ATI units weigh a lot more than the <font color=orange>Kubota</font color=orange> unit. This will limit the amount of weight you can pickup with your FEL.

    Brian,

    You have surprised me. I have always thought that the kubota quick connect system was available for the B21 and that it cost in the $250 range. It is not like the skid steer type of system and only works on Kubota attachments with out modifications.

    I would contact Carver Equipment and see what they say. It may be that your dealer is just not looking in the right place. Let us know if you find out anything.

    See the quick attach system at http://carverequipment.com/images/Quick_Attach.jpg

    You'll need bucket and forks and the pin quick coupler plate.
    The attachment will reduce your loaders payload capacity.

    Hi Steve,

    <font color=blue>The attachment will reduce your loaders payload capacity.</font color=blue>

    Exactly how much does it reduce the loader capacity?

    The extra weight of the quick connect system is weight that goes against your lift capacity. The Tach All system is heavier but more versatile than the kubota system.

    Steve, is the Kubota quick attach system available for the B21? Does Kubota offer a set of forks compatible to the system for the B series tractors? Thanks.

    I donít know if the Quick coupler will fit a B21. I do have a set of <font color=orange>kubota</font color=orange> forks that I use with my Quick Coupler. The tread in my original post has a picture of them.
    Iím believe that the Quick Coupler fits all tractors up to 3710?

    Kubota B21TLB

    Default Re: B21TLB FEL bucket quick coupler...?

    I have checked 3 kubota dealerships in my area so far, and all have told me the same thing. Kubota does not offer a quick coupler kit for the B21. They offer one for the B2710/2910 only because it has the 'agricultural' mount configuration (cylinders pin directly to the bucket) -- the B21 has a four bar linkage.

    I have not checked any aftermarket companies yet, but will. I have my reservations about the ATI quick-attach simply because it would reduce my loader capacity too much. The versatility would be incredible, but I think it would be too much of a trade-off on such a small tractor. I am leaning towards just making one, but if I can find one for $200-300 that fits my criteria, that would save me some time.

    Thanks for all the info and help! I will keep you posted on what I find out.

    The dealer I checked said they don't make a quick coupler for the B2400 and that has the same type of mounting linkage as the B27/2910. I plan to make one too. The $250-300 is pretty expensive for what you get.
