Skid Steer Quick Attach, makes swapping buckets a breeze.
Dumb question probably ... is the skid steer quick attach different than the normal quick attach?
well someone will correct me but my MF had two options, the SSQA and the "pin" attach. The pin attach has about 7 pins on the bucket that hold it on in various places, that have to be R&Red when you change attachments. The SSQA has two springloaded pivot arms that you swing into position, easy as pie. The SSQA also is a std that allows you to get many attachments from different vendors instead of perhaps being tied to ones only from your tractor brand.
there is a penalty i think in that the SSQA is heavier than other systems (big steel plate on front).
The SSQA does not use a plate. Will upload pics.
2 levers with SSQA, or 4 pins without - Go SSQA.
With the lift capacity of the DL loaders, and the axle capicity of the 1600 series, you will not notice the minimal loss from the few extra pounds.
well cept for all the numbers i was right :laughing: sorry about that.
I also think you would be better off with the SSQA. i sure like mine, easy as snap beans to change the item on the front.
Here is a couple of pictures of a pin type quick attach. I really think the SSQA would be a lot stronger
I think that since you got the HD bucket, that only comes with the SSQA option. Since I like spending your money, you will definitely want a set of forks to go with it. I got a set of 42" SSQA forks for $525 delivered from palletforks.com. They aren't super heavy duty, but they are well built and will easily handle anything that the tractor will lift.
Thanks for all the help on the quick attach. I wondered if it was a foolish purchase, but apparently not.
So what does anyone think about snowthrower or push blade? Looks like it is gonna be a hard winter?
