I do understand the cost issue.Yes it is possible. The QA coupler from Kubota is nearly $1000 tho. And my other bucket would need replace also to use the QA. Would rather just buy one bucket instead of multiple buckets and a QA.
Thanks I will look for the ears on eBayI do understand the cost issue.
My Q/C came to me with the 2006 251 hour L48 TLB that I bought used.
I currently have a 24" bucket, a 16" bucket, and a 28" deep root ripper.
I love 'em all, but what a pain they would be without the Q/C.
I just helped a friend find buy a 2021 M62 TLB (amazing machine), and I insisted that we find him one with the Q/C bucket.
I found the perfect 295 hour machine (private sale) for him.......and..... HE paid the (OUCH) $63,500 bill.
If you have a standard bucket, you can easily have a welder convert it to the Q/C system.
The Q/C "ears", can be welded on your bucket, and are sold on E-Bay.
Thanks for sharing all that compatibility information. After searching the net there is just not a lot of information for cross compatibilityThe excavator quick change adapter for the bh92/l47 BT is k7770 for anyone who wants to know. Should be 1.5" and 1.25" pins. My signature pic is of a bh92 with kubota thumb. I use the K78XX buckets. The excavator buckets are slightly taller than the orange kubota ones. The non excavator thumb(orange) still works fine.
Keep in mind there are several styles/Size class of kubota buckets:
Size classes for all are usually notated by the first two digits following the series part number. Large issue between the excavator pin on series, is they are paired metric bores. The BH/BT generally use two standard size bores.
- Excavator pin on(orange)
- Excavator quick att.(dk gray)
- BH/BT pin on (orange)
- BH/BT K exclusive quick change (orange)
- BT excavator quick change(dk gray same as excavator)
Thumbs are the same orange is paired with orange buckets. Dark gray for the excavator series. They are relatively close so will more than likely work with either.
Kubota wont knowingly sell you a excavator quick change dk gray for the BH series. You have to "mod" by using the previous part number from the BT series.
