    Default Skid Steer Adapter Adapter

    They told me, see, that there's a nearly inexhaustable supply of servicable small Bobcat attachments, and someone has a buddy who can pick them up for me for nearly nothing. So, in preparation, starting with a PT adapter plate and an ATI Quick-Tach, Bubenberg's prototype constructer Steve Fisher put together the adapter adapter. It's been done before on a 1445, which would be even better than my 1845 because of greater lift capacity. But now, I'm ready. And as soon as they find the scrap of paper with the number of the guy whose buddy can get the attachments for nearly nothing, I'll be right there to pick them up.

    As soon as they find the scrap of paper with the number of the guy whose buddy can get the attachments for nearly nothing and you pick them up we hope you will post pictures of everything you picked up for nearly nothing. Also, may I suggest a hydraulic cylinder for your adapter adapter's latch mechanism and maybe an electric diverter so that you can have a quick attach quick attach adapter adapter?

    The PT quick attach is easier, and I think a little more positive than the Bobcat type skid steer attachment. (You lurking Gatorboy? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) The Bobcat hitch has become the standard, however, and certainly beats any three-point type front or rear system. Other than that guy who has thebuddy with the contacts to get the cheap implements, the adapter will let me occasionally rent a skid steer implement, or try one out before welding a PT plate on it.

    Yeah, the Bobcat has become the standard and it is much, much better than a 3PT.

    I was wondering about the hydraulics? Are the fittings and pressure the same for skid-steer attachments as they are for the PT ones?

    Or... (drum-roll) do you need some inter-connecting connecting connectors to go with your quick attach quick attach adapter adapter? (cymbol-crash)

    The 1845, has the pto flow of the smaller skid steers. Probably need some coupler adapter adapter couplers, however.

    What shall we call the separate oil separator thingy that isolates the cruddy rental hydraulic fluid from PT's super clean fluid? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Good point. Since I will be changing to the Amsoil, I'll not want further contamination. If I ever rent anything, I'll have to cobble up a pump and some connectors to fill a rental implement with liquid money. Dang you, Sedgewood, now I can't claim it as an <font color="brown"> unanticipated </font> expense.
