    Default New Quick attach

    Heres some pics of a quick attach setup I'm building for my 7308 loader on my New Holland. Cut the bucket brackets off and replaced with a socket on the bucket for them to fit into, then held on the bottom with a pin similar to whats on my friends JD 970. Also pics of brush grapple I'm working on and the qa socket tacked onto it to check fit. Waiting on hose fitting for that, hopefully be able to give it a test drive on Thursday. What do you think? Go easy on me this is my first project

    I have not seen a limit as to the numbers of photo. There is also the PHOTO GALLERY at the top of the page.

    Looks good. Let us know how it works out as far as strength and anything you would have done differently or would do again.

    I would like to do something similar in the future so I really appreciate the post.

    Don't know if you're going to rig the hydraulics so the clamp teeth will go down below the rake tines like that, but you will like it if they do. Then you can pull stuff back out of a pile (brush, or logs more likely) and pick up just what you want. Nice looking.

    Good looking work Mroldstyle.!!!
    Looks like you and are thinking along the same lines on the brush grapple. I've been working on one that's very similar to your design. I'll try and post some pics soon!

    Yup thats what I'm planning. Thinking that way if I'm carrying one or two logs it will clamp down on them tighter. Also plan on making a removable stop on the end of the forks so I can just pinch one log and then pick it up to a comfortable height for blocking into firewood. Allready tried out the hydraulics, temporarily hooked up to my rear remotes and it works good, gotta be carefull to feather the valve or its pretty fast but otherwise works as planned. Now waiting for hose and fittings to reach up to the front. Hopefully there not stuck in a snowdrift between here an Pa. somewhere on the UPS truck!

    If it becomes a problem, install a needle valve that works in both directions... Surplus Center - N600S 3/8 NPT PARKER NEEDLE VALVE you can slow down the flow..

    The only thing I saw that might be a problem is in the 3rd picture in post #2 it looks like the top of the quick hitch welded to the bucket might hit the dump/curl piston. I hope not, because it looks light a cool setup!
