    There was just a post on this very same topic. Do a search and I believe that you will find quite a few threads on this very subject. As a starter, you can read this thread:

    What you want is a skid steer compatible quick attach for your tractor. It's pretty much an industry standard so attachments are easy to find. Getting some unique setup like you posted ..... as fancy or neat as they may be ....will make it impossible to find attachments to fit. Your dealer should be able to order it for you.

    The problem is that no one makes a skid steer quick attach system for the kubota BX series of tractors. I agree that would be ideal, but unless you fabricate your own ssqa, you are SOL when finding a manufacturer. Right now, the link that Slice posted is the only option out there for purchase.

    I was looking at using something like this: Washburn Company & hayspear.com Quick attach Skid steer adapter hitch with blank back & heavy duty 2 cross bar frame and making the brackets to fit my loader arms. The only down fall is now your reducing your lift capacity by 100lbs.

    I wouldn't think you would lose anything. I have this arrangement myself. What would make you think you would lose any lift capacity?

    You are moving your load a few inches farther forward... you may loose a LITTLE but it will not be anything significant. KennyV

    If the quick attach setup weighs 100lbs, then your lift capacity is reduced by 100lbs.
