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.
The following John Deere Loader Numbers are compatible: D120, D160, D170, H120, H130, H140, 120R, 200X, 200CX, 220R, 300X, 300CX, 300E, 300R, 305, 320R, 400X, 400CX, 410, 419, 420, 440, 440R, 460, 500, 510, 512, 520, 521, 540, 541, 542, 553
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.
The following John Deere Loader Numbers are compatible: H310, H340, H360, H380, H480, 520M, 540M, 540R, 620R, 640R, 660R, 680R
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.

You have a list of chores to do, and you have the equipment to help you do it. You just need the right attachments for the job, and you need them to fit your tractor or skid steer. What will fit your machine? How do you choose the right attachments? What are some common attachments that help save time and money? We can help.
You likely wonder how to choose implements for your machine. The first step when choosing implements is to consider the type of machine you have. Each of these will have different attachments available, so let's start there.
So, are attachments interchangeable? Yes! Interchangeable attachments are one of the features that make tractors and skid steers such great investments. With just one machine, you can do the job of four or more separate ones. This cuts cost investment but also time. It's possible to fit a skid steer, Quick Tach, or United Attachments to most other machines with mount plates, three-point quick hitches, and conversion adapters.
After first considering the type of machine you have, it's time to think about why size matters when choosing attachments for your machine. There are two size factors to look at for every attachment.
The size dimensions of the attachment are important for several reasons. Depending on the job you're doing, the implement could be too small. It may not fit the items you are moving. If the implement is too large, it may not fit where you need it to go.
The second size consideration is weight. The weight of the attachment will reduce the weight capacity available to you while working. If your machine is smaller with a lower weight capacity to start with, the weight of the attachment will be much more important. You can also go with a lighter-duty implement, if appropriate, to free up weight capacity.
Based on the type of machine you have, you'll find several common attachments that help save time & money as you get those jobs done more efficiently. Let’s look at some of the tractor attachments you might need:
