    Default Adapter Skid Steer Quick Connects to Kubota Tractor

    Hoping somebody can point me in the right direction.

    I recently acquired a backhoe that was most recently used on a skid steer with a remote hydraulic connection using the standard skid steer flush face couplers. It has one male and one female flush face fitting which I need to attach to my kubota rear remote hydraulic loop.

    My Kubota loop has two female AG style quick coupler fitting. They appear to be perhaps 1/4" smaller then their skid steer counter parts, and of course use two different connection systems, and dont line up male/female.

    I'm not sure how to adapt these connections. I tried to take the flush face fittings off the end of the backhoe hoses, but i couldn't get them to budge.

    Is their a specific adapter available for this use case? Do I need some custom hoses made to either replace the backhoe hoses or create a transition hose? Can I just swap out the AG connectors on the Kubota rear aux plate for flush face connectors?

    Thanks,

    If it were me, i'd remove the flat faced connectors and buy a pair of pioneers to match the connectors on your trctor. If they wouldn't loosen, you need longer wrenches.

    If you can't get the hose ends off, try double wrenching them. You can probably find compatible ends at a hyd. shop. I would be more concerned about the tractors hyd. flow being enough to run the hoe.
