My grapple came with flat face couplers.Trying to hook up a grapple to my B2601. I’m unable to hook up the Safe Flat Face Coupler. There must be a trick, and I’m doing it wrong. Please help. Thank you
Dang, we both have the same tractor, we are both in MA (actually I am in CT right on the border of MA 1/2 miles away) and we both have the same first name. Could it be that we are brothers by different parents? LOL.Credit Dusty Rusty from the last time this was discussed (there is another recent thread as well):
I experienced the same problem today, and I moved the loader stick in all 4 directions with the engine off, and the ignition on. Then I activated both buttons on the 3rd function valve, again with the engine off. This released all pressures in the system, and the flat-faced couplers went together without any issues.
If the pressure truly is relieved on both ends of the connector then you have an operator problem and need toI have tried everything mentioned here. I hear it clicking and the hose feels like the pressure is off of it. But, I’m not able to get the couplers to connect. Is there anything I should be doing with the little ball that lines up with the pin on the sleeve?
I do appreciate your help. Thank you
Yup, this will work ....with pioneer type couplers.I use this with the flat face couplers for my grapple. Sometimes I can get the couplers to attach by hand, but most of the time use the clamp to make life easier: https://www.skidsteersolutions.com/qc-mate-quick-coupler-hand-clamp-xboom/
It should work with any type of coupler, TBH. But definitely works with my flat-face.Yup, this will work ....with pioneer type couplers.
