    Default FEL/SKID STEER CONVERSION

    i recently bought a case 485 with FEL. Its has a fixed bucket and I would like to buy the conversion to use skid steer attachments. Whats the best one out there? There seems to quite a few to choose from. I dont mind spending the money, just want to spend on the right one.
    Thanks

    Here's an adaptor for $189 if you want to cutoff your existing bucket ears and weld them to the new adaptor:

    Seems too inexpensive to be true.

    There good to start your "build" with, I used them for mine "but" you need to add quite a bit more bracketry to turn those latches into a complete mounting system.

    The tricky part is getting them lined up in the right place, so the curl cylinder rods don't get bent when fully extended.

    Then buy the plate to weld onto the bucket, where the ears were cut off.

    That project would have been an interesting TBN thread. Did you happen post it?
