The Faster multifaster is an option offered on the new 2 series (2032r/2038r). I was very interested until I saw the price. Wowza!

How much? I have a line on a Multifaster that was branded for Kubota. Same thing just has an orange bracket and I have JD green paint.:good2:

I was interested, but not available on the new 2025r. I could only imagine what the cost was for this, but looks to be very easy, quicker and cleaner than connecting/disconnecting and capping the 4 lines. I would guess it also reduces the chances of hydraulic line contamination over the current rubber plugs x4.

I installed a Faster single point on my 1025 several years ago, following along with PSRumors write up, I believe. I can't even remember if I posted any pictures at the moment.

I found one on eBay that was slightly different than the one that was installed by PSRumors for waaaaaayyyy cheaper than what deere wanted for one. I had to mod the bracket and the handle but no problem there.

I love it. Wouldn't want to be without it now. I can hook and unhook the loader without having to shut off the engine. And when I'm mowing and the hydraulic line pressure builds up from sitting in the sun, it takes a little more muscle to pull the handle but not all that bad.

I have them on both of my big tractors. If you take the loader off a lot, well worth the cost. Since mine are plumbed for a grapple, it's over 6 times faster :good2:

Well after looking into this further I found that this particular connector is for a larger tractor, a Kubota M series. It might be that someone more gifted than I could make it work on a 1025R but not me. In addition, after talking to a Kubota sales guy, he says they are standard equipment on all new BX2380s and they are a problem for Kubota. He said about half of all the ones they delivered have come back under warranty due to leaking. That's when I gave up on this idea. Sure would be nice to be able to disconnect the loader without having to get off the tractor.

If anyone is interested there are 2 of these units on Ebay for $199 each new in the box which is a hell of a deal. Here is the link

Well I went ahead and bought the single point connector. Hopefully I’ll make it work. The seller had dropped the price to $179 and I just couldn’t pass it up, it’s a new in box item.

I'm sure you will be able to make it work. That is smaller than the unit I have. Mine is a 4 port but has 6 positions.

You might have to fab your own mounting bracket but for that price, it's worth that amount of work.

I paid more than double that for mine, but mine are 6 way and larger. I did have to adapt the ORFS on mine to JIC to match my hoses, so I had to buy 12 adapters for each tractor :gizmo:

I also fabbed my own mounting brackets. I mounted mine so the handle pulls like a one armed bandit :lol:. I found it was easier to work than turned so the lever movement was parallel to the tractor.
