If you have a John Deere tractor with an 80 or 440 front end loader with a pin-on bucket and wish you could have the Deere “hook & pin” quick attach system so you could change attachments, this is the kit for you! It converts Deere 80 or 440 loaders with pin-on buckets to allow the use of Deere 300 & 400 series-compatible attachments. In other words, with this kit on the front of your tractor, any attachment that mounts to a Deere 300 or 400 series loader can now mount to your tractor. It opens up a whole new world of versatility! This kit does require changing the brackets on your loader bucket to quick attach, by cutting off the pin-style mounts and welding a new set of attachment plates (included in this kit) on the bucket, which any welding shop should be able to complete. Once installed you’ll be able to effortlessly switch between front loader attachments and remove them if they’re in the way.
CHANGING FROM PIN BUCKET TO DEERE QUICK ATTACH
ADDS MANEUVERABILITY The quick attach is not only helpful in what it can take on, but also in what it can take off. The loader bucket can be quickly removed to reduce the space needed to maneuver the tractor. When you need your bucket again it can be re-installed quickly.
SIMPLE INSTALLATION Installation is simple. The quick attach mounts directly to loader arms and cylinders, replacing the original bucket. It is available for most compact tractor loaders. No special pins or modifications to the loader are necessary. Weld-on, attachment plates convert the original bucket to accommodate the quick attach.
QUALITY CONSTRUCTION Both the framework and loader mounts are constructed of heavy gauge steel to ensure that the quick attach will last the life of your loader.
