    Kubota B2320 & Bobcat 763

    Default Re: B2320 w/ LA504 Quick Attach And Kubota Forks

    Someone has a 2320 with a LA364 loader. I think he described this as if the dealer didn't have a LA304 loader but had a LA364 to offer. I believe hydraulics are the same(with the exception of the cylinders) & the frame is the same. You'll notice operating times are slower with the LA364 over the LA304. Why not fabricate "Bucket wings" to the 4 footer for snow removal?

    Bucket wings are an option.I am just waiting on a quote for the tractor,talked to the dealer this morning.I will see how much the 5 foot bucket is worth.

    So, the currently shipping "pin style" quick attach for the LA504 loader (and the others with the same pin spacing) - basically works like this:

    You remove the existing pinned on bucket from the tractor.

    In place of the bucket - you put the QA assembly on the front arms of the loader.

    The bucket gets a pin installed in the UPPER position only - on both sides.

    Then there is a pocket on the top of the QA on both sides that this pin on the bucket sits into. A pin gets installed on either side in the lower position - to hold the bucket in place.

    All in all - it's much better than having to wrestle out pins and then pound pins back in - if you had no QA at all on the FEL. But it's not as fast or convenient as a skid steer style QA setup.

    Which leads to this: if you look at the new Kubota B3350 tractor that is coming out - Kubota is now making available a "skid steer style QA" for the LA534 loader on this tractor. I have already confirmed that the pin spacing on the LA534 - is the same as the LA504 on my B3200 (and hence is the same as all the other loaders that match up to the pin spacing of the LA504). I confirmed this by looking at the part numbers for the pin-on style buckets (54" and 60") - for the LA534 and the LA504 - and they are the exact same part numbers in the Kubota online parts catalog.

    So...... it appears that very shortly there will be a skid steer style QA available for the older tractors too. By simply buying one of the new QA setups from Kubota. I call it "skid steer style" - because some of the dealers have piped in on other threads here on TBN - and said that the Kubota QA is not interchangeable with a "true" skid steer QA setup. Until I can actually get my hands on the new Kubota QA (they haven't shipped yet) - I can't tell you where the dimensional differences are.

    There are other options available out there for a skid steer type QA setup - are aftermarket solutions like ATI - and I think if you compare the Kubota solution to the ATI solution - you'll see that the Kubota setup is better - whereas the ATI setup is sort of cobbled together. It's too heavy - pushes the bucket out too far (reducing capacity) - etc.

    Here's the information for the new quick hitch for the LA534:

    Quick Hitch : PN#: B2366 (Hitch Quick LA534) - would also show up possibly as 7J056-36103

    Pallet Fork Frame for new Quick Hitch: PN#: B2376 (Frame Pallet Fork) - would also show up as 7J056-091260

    54" Bucket for Quick Hitch : PN# B2324 (SQQBKT 54) - would also show up as 7J056-51000

    There's a 60" bucket available also - I just don't have the part number in front of me.

    You'll probably pay in the range of $550 US (maybe a little more) - for a 60" pin on bucket

    Just a little over 500 dollars when I priced the tractor yesterday.

    Its me, the 304 was on backorder so my dealer installed the 364 on my 2320 and ate the cost difference. I also have the QA installed on the 364.

    Kubota B2320

    Default Re: B2320 w/ LA504 Quick Attach And Kubota Forks

    Does anyone know about what the B1658 weighs? I asked the dealer for pricing and of course he said it might not fit, blah, blah, blah, then tried to tell me it weighed like 100#, and with the forks etc. there would be very little capacity for my La 304. Then he said they have never sold one. (with the sales pitch he gave me I can see why.) I didn't bother to argue, but I can make a fork attachment adequate for the loader capacity that doesn't weigh anywhere near what the kubota unit does. I seem to recall seeing something somewhere that said the B1658 weighs about 60#, but can't find that thread now.

    The B1658 is the quick attach adapter that goes on the end of the loader arms right? Just asking because I can't remember the Kubota part number. The quick attach adapter itself doesn't weigh that much. I can get you an exact weight if you're willing to wait a little because I'm removing the QA on my B3200 with the LA504 loader - and going to the new skid steer style QA Kubota has just come out with on the B3350.

    If you're thinking of the Kubota fork frame - I can get you a weight in that too. The key to not sucking up all of the capacity on your loader when you add a fork frame to it - is to get the appropriate forks. You'll find forks on Ebay and Craigslist for cheap because the guys in warehouses drag them on the floor - wear them down eventually - and then they need to be replaced for safety reasons. I've got a pair of 36" forks that I bought off of Ebay - and they seriously heavy duty - and I use them for lifting and prying rocks and so forth - but even in their worn down condition they are serious overkill for the LA504 - and they're **** heavy.

    I also bought a pair of 24" forks from Artillian (fork frames and fork tines for Deere) - which are more in line with the actual lift capacity of the LA504 and a much lighter. Artillian also sells other fork tines that are not ridiculously heavy - and are more than adequate capacity wise for the LA504 (and your loader).

    I believe I remember reading in one thread about the B1658 pin quick attach was only about 32 lbs.

    Kubota B2320

    Default Re: B2320 w/ LA504 Quick Attach And Kubota Forks

    Yeah, It's the adapter weight I am interested in. I don't plan to use the kubota fork frame, it is overkill for my application, and expensive to boot. I saw a thread where someone made a special adapter to replace the bucket (brought the forks back closer to the arms) and then used clamp on forks. A pair of aluminum forks is very light,and the adapter should be much lighter than the fork frame. I'm thinking that I may actually be able lift more with the right setup than I can with the bucket, since the bucket will be heavier than the fork setup, although this is not my reason for wanting forks.

    32# would be great!
