Lets see, on the Dingo K9-4 I have a 4in1 bucket, earth drill with 4 drills, leveling bar (homemade) and now a cement mixer (partly homemade).
The Kub KX41-3V has 4 buckets, a rockhammer, ability to mount the dingo attachments (although I have not tried the leveling bar or mixer on it) and I made a mechanical thumb for it as well.
The baby of the family Kobelco SK005 only has 3 buckets and a thumb.

Hi
i'm new to this forum so forgive me hijacking this thread to ask a question.

Is there a difference in operating outcomes between the Harley Power Rake and the Caterpillar Power Box Rake? (for skid steer & track loaders) I have looked at the specs for each and they seem to be almost the same product, from what I could gather anyway. Can anyone give me a comparison between the basics of the two products? Many thanks in advance.

The outcome is very much the same. I am not sure who builds CATS power rake but it might even be built by Harley.

Thanks for the reply, my local Cat dealer says they supply some Cat rake parts to Harley owners so maybe you are right!

Making skid steer attachments
Universal Attachment

One thing I must add. Universal Attachment. If your going to buy please go ahead and purchase the universal attachment plate with it. We have calls daily for many wanting our items but they cannot attach them. I cannot tell you the times we have beat a price or offer something at an incredible deal but the customer cannot attach it due to the hook up. We offer the John Deere hooks for a small charge but bite the bullet and get you a universal attachment plate. You will be glad you did!

Universal attachment plate
Change out your buckets current mounting system to a more universal style, with the universal attachment plate. ( bucket conversion )



The universal style attachment plate comes already spaced and squared. To do the conversion remove the old hook-up from your bucket and weld the new universal plate in it’s place on the bucket.

The universal attachment plate which welds in to place, has oval shaped openings that allows greater weld coverage, for a stronger weld spread between the universal atachment plate and your bucket.

Made in the U.S.A.

What is this, a who's got the most stuff thread? At this point, we mostly work on the farm. I get by with:

2001 Bobcat 773G Turbo 56 hp standard flow (open cab)
very important: $ 10 Walmart 12 v cigarette-lighter-powered "air conditioner" (clip on fan, aimed at my head. . .)

66" low profile tooth bucket
66" Bobcat brand 4-in-1 combination bucket
66" Bobcat brand industrial (pan bottom) grapple bucket
36" x 6" Bobcat trencher
Bobcat 15C auger w/ 12" bit (If I need others, I rent them--that's happened once)
pallet forks: Not used often, but essential for unloading, for example, pallets of steel t-posts, etc.
DrJim brand hay spear for round bales
Loegering Eliminator rake (not used often, but really, really handy when needed for ripping, de-rooting, raking out clods and rocks; it is also great for grubbing out privet and briar bushes along the edges of fields, etc) (too light to work going up-hill)

In 07 & 08, we acquired approximately 700 tri-axle loads of fill material, and pushed the majority of it with the skid-steer. Much of the fill was mixed, with big slabs of concrete from utility repair work (spoil), asphalt, and rocks. Though we had a big Cat high-lift around part of the time, the Bobcat 773 with the combo bucket was ideal for sorting the fill material. You can pick up individual rocks, or a bunch of rocks; hold the articulated part of the bucket open a few inches and shake--the dirt falls out. Move the rocks to the bottom of the hole you're filling, and then cover with the clean dirt. The big Cat couldn't do that--the rocks and slabs seemed to want to "float" to the surface. The JD 5425 ag tractor has more raw pushing power, but the skid steer turned circles around it for most of the dirt pushing work.

The grapple bucket can gather and then grab an unbelievable pile of brush in a single bite, turning the small skidsteer into a mighty tool. We skid whole trees with the grapple--grab with one prong of the grapple and then back up. The high lift couldn't do that--it could push them cross ways but a 60' tree is then "wider" than a 10' farm road.

The trencher works great in our soil. With some practice, you can rout out square holes for valve boxes, etc. We did hire some backhoe work, but judged it cheaper than fetching a rental mini-ex and then trying to operate efficiently--the backhoe w/ operator was a good bargain for the things we couldn't do with the skid-steer.

Summary: For years I borrowed or rented skid steers that had only a plain tooth bucket. I wouldn't have believed what we were missing--sort of like how I felt after stripping wire for 10 years with a pocket knifel, the way Dad tought me, only to find out that $10 wire stripping pliers existed the entire time. The grapple and 4-in-1 are essential, huge time savers, worth every dime, even if you have to pay your dealer retail (no, we didn't. . .). Steve, you asked. . . .

I see you have a Stanley Jackhammer (via search for same). I do as well and the hydraulic seals are leaking. Have you had to replace these and if so what did you do to charge the nitrogen accumulator? Stanley sells a recharge kit for a whopping $600 and I refuse to spend that much for such a small item. Do you know of an alternative? I see lots of kits on Ebay but don't know if their threads will fit the Stanley hammer.

When I bought my Stanley hammer it had a very small leak. I took it to the local Stanley Authorized Repair Center which is about 1/2 hour from me and had them replace the seals. They also found that the accumulator was bad, so they also replaced the accumulator diaphragm and seals it and did a recharge. Total Parts was $92 and labor to repair it was $206.

I don't know what fitting is required to connect to the accumulator. The guy at the repair center told me that most hydraulic repair shops in my area would have the necessary equipment to recharge the accumulator. I took that to mean that the accumulator fitting was a common type.

Can't speak for the Stanley, but my Okada has a regular Schrader fill valve. Just like a tire.
