Ok, I have an L3540 with the smallish Kubota (metric probably) quick disconnects for a end of loader mounted implement (had a WR Long 4 in 1 bucket up there) , anyway, I just traded it for a 4' root grapple that have the American 1/2 inch I believe disconnects on it.

So is it better/easier to change the connections on the loader (my thought) or on the grapple? And am I going to run into a metric to SAE adapter nightmare or will the ones at tractor supply work and how do I tell??

Thanks, I want to get this grapple into service....

I would compare the cost of just changing the couplers on the grapple and then the cost of changing the tractor side couplers. If the 4 n 1 bucket worked I don't see any reason why the grapple wouldn't work either. Which ever way was cheaper to change that is what I would do. $.02
