As sometimes happens with first-time tractor buyers, you might have a tractor and loader package you’re just not satisfied with. Your current loader uses a skid steer carrier design, so you’re already the proud owner of a collection of skid steer loader attachments. And those implements aren’t compatible with the tractor and loader carrier you want. That’s why you should know about a skid steer adapter for the new loader.
For example, this video shows how two different materials buckets that aren’t compatible with the same loader carrier can be made to work with the same loader carrier by using a skid steer adapter.
This Frontier SA20F Skid Steer Carrier Adapter (US CA) is compatible with John Deere 100 Series, 200 Series, or 300E Loaders (US CA). If you choose a compatible John Deere Compact Utility Tractor (US CA), you can add this adapter to your package and still use all those skid steer loader attachments you already own.
And it’s so easy to attach. Just pick it up with the loader carrier, insert and close two locking pins, and you’re all set. Then, just pick up the skid steer compatible implement, engage the two locking levers on the adapter, and you’re ready to work.
