I have an old JD 420 with model 44 loader. Put a dingo quick attach on it to use bucket and forks. Love it!

My Lift capacity is like 1000lbs the skid steer quick attach is bigger and heavier. So are the attachments that fit on them. Also the mini skid attachments are less money and weigh less and can still do the work my tractor can handle. That and dingo attachments are everywhere.

South 79 do you have pictures of what your set up looks like?

I have a Kubota 2660 that we use a lot that would be handy, never thought of doing that but I bet it would work great using the mini skid set up. Thought about getting rid of it and going bigger, but its too handy to not have that small tractor and loader, but always looking for more versatility with it.

I'd go the route of the universal mount. Perhaps plumb an extra hydraulic line to get some more use. It woudn't be hard to do. With a universal mount you could have your loader bucket and whatever else, renting if needed.
