Not sure what type of connection you have on your loader? Below you will find the most common connections and a link to view only the attachments that work for you.
SSQA, QA, and Quick Tach
On your arms, you will have two spring loaded levers at the top. When activated, each lever will engage a pin at the bottom. These pins should be approximately 32"-35" apart, center to center. This type of connection is commonly known as the SSQA, QA, and Quick Tach. The SSQA was originally found on skid steers. Due to the ease and speed at which you can change between implements, this connection is very popular and can be found on newer front end loaders.
John Deere Hook and Pin
To connect to an attachment, your loader arms will slide under the top hooks. The bottom pins on your attachment will slide into the bottom of the loader arm and will be secured using a cotter pin. This connection is found on most 200, 300, 400, and 500 series John Deere loaders. Although it is easier than the pin on style to change attachments, most user tend to still convert to the SSQA or Quick Tach connection which is easier and faster.
This connection is found on larger sub compact and utility tractors and can be easily distinguished by the spring loaded handle on one side of the loader arms. You will connect to an attachment by tilting your arms forward and sliding the top bar under the brackets of your implement. You will then tilt the arms back allowing the bottom pin slots to align. Lastly, you will pull the spring handle out and turn to engage the pins that run horizontally from side to side.
Pin On Style
Many older front end loaders will connect to attachments using multiple pins that connect the loader arm and hydraulic cylinder to the implement. This can be a pain staking task that also requires a lot of time to switch between your implements. These attachments tend to be higher priced as they have to be built for your specific loader. It is highly recommended to adapt this kind of connection to the Quick Tach style connection.
