When a natural disaster like a flood or a storm…
Having a quick tach adapter attached to your machine makes it easy to switch between functions, this ensures the best use of your equipment especially on sites where the machine will be required to perform numerous tasks at the one location. These adapters easily allow changing implements from one quick attach system to another and require no welding. Many new tractors are sold with quick tach front end loader buckets, some tractors are not sold with such a system, and instead have pin-on buckets. To change attachments requires driving four pins out and moving the tractor to the desired attachment. Then you line everything up perfectly and drive the pins back in, it’s about a 30 minute process, versus a two minute process with quick attach.
The skid loader compatible, Bobcat, SSL, or “universal” system is the most common. It’s what’s on the front of almost every skid loader. It has two male brackets that mount in corresponding female housings on the implement. That locks down with pins controlled by one, or usually two, spring-loaded levers. The John Deere system is similar, but not interchangeable, with the skid loader system, but it locks the bucket on with a pair of lynch pins. The “Euro” or “Global” system mostly seen on larger tractors uses a spring-loaded locking mechanism. It has more weight capacity that either the skid loader or Deere system, and has the advantage of locking itself in when the implement is tilted back, so you have to get off the tractor only once – to release the attachment that you want off. You don’t have to get off and lock the new attachment is place. This system is growing in popularity, but is much less common than the other two systems.
