Anyone know where I could get a Kubota QA for my L3000 with LA452 FEL?
I want the type that uses the top pins and slide the lower pins in. Not SSQA.
I can find pictures on the net but can't find them to buy. I assume everyone has gone to ssqa.
I just personally don't want that style. May have to build them myself.
Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you’re trying to convert a pin on to what’s called Euro/Global. You might try https://www.worksaver.com/euro-global-standard-attaching-system

#835045 appears to be the pin on to Euro/Global if you add the listed brackets. Saw a couple of online dealers that listed 835045. Both were “request quote”. No clue on cost.

Don't think that;s what he is looking for. I have a B1658 loader quick attach on my B2320 w/LA304 loader. It uses the original pin-on bucket with no modification. Don't know if they are still available from Kubota, or if they ever made one for his loader. I would try Messicks.

If the OP can provide the QA model number it would help.

RBA50 is right. That's not the one I'm looking for. I think it was the first QA kubota had, but don't think they make them anymore. I found an old post on here where a guy builds them and was able to get in touch with him. He is willing to build me a set, I need to get some measurements to him and then he will give me a price + shipping. Will see how this turns out, may have to try and build my own. I will find the post and put it up so you can see what I am talking about.

If you search mounting loader bucket by jsmootz on here, go to post #5 and there is a picture of a set.
There is also a link to a youtube video of a guy changing implements using these.
Got in touch with Dan, he builds these, waiting for a price.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I think these used to be a Kubota item but they don't offer them anymore?

Thanks, I did try Messicks and couldn't find anything there either.
I don't know a model number, that would help me too.

RBA50, would you happen to know what all buckets the B1658 QA fits?
Thats what I'm looking for but don't know dimensions of the B1658 to know if it would fit.
My FEL is a LA452.

Couldn’t find that thread. Found this, which I take to be the implement side of the hitch your talking about. Interesting hitch. Looks like a good system. Never seen anything quite like it.

I’m aware your not looking for the above adapter. It’s just an example. Glad you found what you were looking for.

Old case skid loaders used that style before the ssqa became standard. Not being a jerk, but you'll have a heck of a lot more options (and cheaper) if you convert to the ssqa. There's really no benefit of one system over the other other then the ssqa is vastly more available.

There is a big difference, it's called weight. This machine will only pick up about 800-900 lbs.
I'm not looking for a lot of options, just bucket and forks.
Don't know how you can say ssqa is cheaper when I would have to convert tractor and bucket.

The attachments are. Cheaper and readily available. The conversion I did the my B loader added all of 45lbs. I have a 600 something lbs weight limit. I picked up a 54" bucket for $200.00 and the adapter plates for the bucket were universal mounts for $100.00. Few hours of fab work I had quick attach and opened the world of attachments.

My FEL is a LA452.
I have an LA304. It also fits the LA364 and LA504 loaders, but I don't know what buckets specifically it fits. I guess any that will fit those loaders should work.
