 Quick attatch loader impl.

I am sure this was asked before but could not find where.
My future dealer asked me if I wanted the quick attatch system for the fel, (like the skid steer attatchments have)
The cost was around $200. or so, Should I get this? It sounds like it is the cats meow but I wonder if it is worth the money. How often would I switch from the bucket to a set of forks (borrowed from a friend that has a skidloader) I was not planning on buying forks or any other front end attatchment other than the bucket?
Thank you

I use my JD quick attach all the time to swap between the bucket and grapple. The JD quick attach is real fast and easy to use but I wish it was of the universal skid steer type because those implements are cheaper. Anyway, I think if you had it you wouldn't regret it.

You know the more I think about it, the more I like the idea. I will not be 39 years old for ever and the older I get the less I will want to do more work rather than less work to change attatchments

For mowing the bucket is often in the way. Instead of removing the loader every time I mow I just remove the bucket. Flip 2 levers and drop the bucket off.

 Quick attatch loader impl.

I have quick attach on my NH. I have a heavy duty skid steer bucket that I use on it along with skid steer pallet forks. Quick attach is also useful, because a lot of rental yards will rent you a special purpose bucket that will go right on the FEL mount. I agree with the previous statement about having no bucket on the loader, sometimes too. No bucket reduces any danger of inadvertant contact while maneuvering in tight spaces. Lift capacity on your FEL will be reduced somewhat by the quick attach because of the extra mechanism, but the quick attach mechanism is actually lighter than a bucket, so the FEL capacity is higher if you lift right from the bare quick attach frame.
Seek help if you don't know how to do this safely.

So all in all what the board says is that it is worth the 300 dollars for the quick unit to be put on? I really do think though that I would rarely use any other attatchment than the bucket? Other than forks, what would I have a use for the front end for that I may be missing? Also how difficult is it to take the fel off if you have the NH pin system. Not trying to get to cheap here but every $300 is half of anouther attatchment
Thanks

If you're sure you won't need to remove the bucket there's no reason to pay for the quick attach. I would hope it could be added later if needed. No personal experience, but I understand it takes maybe half an hour to change front attachments without a quick attach.

You could add pallet forks a front blade or a stone bucket.

I switch back and forth between bucket and pallet forks all the time. I also lift metal structures that are at the peak weight capability of my FEL/Tractor and shedding 300# and getting the load closer to the pivot helps.

A rock bucket is one of the most common accessories that I don't need every day, but it is useful. I have a straight cutting edge on my bucket and a toothed bucket might also be useful in some circumstances.
