    Bush Hog 1947 FEL Quick attach conversion

    Hey everybody. Laid up with the flu. Thinking about how hard it would be to convert my 1947 loader to a quick attach system. I can fab anything, really just need plans. Any ideas, or is this fever deceiving me down a rabbit hole? Thanks.

    I'm thinking like a Bobcat Dingo, or Vermeer style, since my Bucket's a 48" it'll probably be easier to find attachments in a skid steer style. What's the best and most versatile?

    I don't know of any "plans" but there are some systems out there you could try to copy or convert yourself. The one here for the Massy's are about $575, but they have some "blank" (for the tractor side) ones also I think.

    Attachments Using Quick Attach System

    ATI also has a few different ones:

    Loader Attachments, Buckets, Grapples, Tach-All Quick Attach

    And so does Washburn/Haypear:

    Thanks Kennyd. Think this may be my model to work from, slightly different for my purpose. But that's close.

    I built a mini skid steer quick attach system. The Toro Dingo quick attach system was the inspiration but it is the same as a bunch of mini's spec. I bought a plate (Titan 1/4" from Ebay for $69 w/free shipping-Amazon is $75 free shipping) and then made a quick attach assembly to fit the plate. The notch on the loader side is for the snow thrower pto shaft. I need to order another plate and build a front hoe.
