I tried to find a kit to buy, I even went to Kubota but I couldn't find a kit to have a Hydraulic powered skid steer quick attach for my L2501 so I'm building one.

It works, still need to lube and make some adjustments.

Heck yeah! That's awesome. Very cool modification.
Thanks!

It needs some fine tuning and it's time to get the second front hydraulics system on it.

I plan to cut new arms that are up when open and level when down with a protective cover.

I have the Kubota front hydraulics kit but I'm replacing the control valve with one from from Summit Hydraulics that has 2 front hydraulic feeds/solenoids.

You also need a buffer / flow restrictor on that small of a cylinder.
It will react better for you.

I agree, this is the prototype so I expected to have to tweak things.

I'm running it off the feed for my grapple and hydraulic auger but I plan to run a restrictor in the cylinder once I get the dedicated hydraulic system on and I plan to get a ram that has less travel

This is exactly what I have been looking to do. This valve has a plug in the T port so do you remove this plug and connect here for power beyond. Thanks in advance for any help.

How do you plan on restricting flow to the cylinder?

I have the Kubota third function kit but I bought parts to have 2 front hydraulic systems.

I can post pictures of what I have once I get it put on.

I really like what you have come up with and want to do it to my B-3350 . Can you advise what the dimensions are on the cylinder and where you got it and the orifice's ?

Sounds cool. I don’t switch many times in a day, so it would be basically almost unused for me.

That’s awesome!! I wonder if it would be easy enough to just use a diverter for that function? Since you wouldn’t have to worry about using curl at the same time.

I don't see why not and it would save a lot of money, if you do it be sure to post it!
