So I’ve been waiting weeks to use my brand new 1025R 260 backhoe until my BXpanded order arrived. The last parts of the order arrived today, the most awaited of which was the quick-attach bucket adapter. But so far it’s turned out to be a big disappointment.
I’m not sure what’s “quick” about it. With the stock setup, you have to hammer two large pins out/in to change the bucket. Once this adapter is installed onto the back hoe, it’s supposed to take “seconds” to swap out buckets. But it seems to me is all you’re saving is having to hammer out one less pin. Even with the adapter, the bottom/rear “quick” pin still has to be hammered out/in for each swap. Not exactly “seconds to change”
I greased the quick pin but it still has to be hammered in. Trying to line up the bolt hole in the pin with the matching holes in the bucket bushing is even harder because it’s also tight.
Anyone that uses one of these have suggestions?
