    Default Modify a QA blank to pickup JD loader attachments

    My neighbor has root grapple, for a JD standard loader, that we want to use on my tractor. My tractor has a SSQA loader. We have already pick it up with my tractor. The JD holding pins are wider and below the my QA plates. Thinking of making a blank plate that was tall and wide enough to use the JD pins? As anyone did this with any success? My concern is bending the plate were the pins come through.

    Thanks

    While I have not used a JDQA to SSQA adapter, I don't see why you could not do it. Most of the weight and pressure is on the top hooks anyway unless you are back-dragging. You basically want this but in reverse correct? Joanne's Pot Racks & Washburn's Industrial & Ag Attachments Skid steer adapter for John deere 300-400-500 series loader

    Yes something like that!
    I was thinking of using a solid plate though.
    Thanks I'll check them out.

    Yeah a solid plate may work a little better, I'm sure you look a little and can find others out there too. Be a good thing to have if a guy had access to some JD style attachments.
