www.machinerytrader.com and look under attachments. Pretty sure a 328 would have 330 size pins and a 321 would have 320 sized pins so the couplers would work on more then one size machine. JRB makes a good coupler , or cat couplers as well.

I'm pretty sure the 328 uses a 325/9 boom to keep it from being tippy.

The couplers themselves can be $4-5K, then you have all the plumbing and labor to get it running which would probably be pushing $8-10K.

Very good possibility that they do, but are the pin sizes for the bucket not the same?

The bucket pins on a 328 are the same as a 325/329 bucket pin. That being said, it weights almost as much as a 330/336. So, go figure, lol.


On the original question, I know just to pipe a 345 for aux. (hammer) lines is in the neighborhood of $14K. While a 321/328 is smaller and the quick coupler lines are smaller as well, you still have to tie into the pump, the cab (switch) and all those safety check valves too. I think $10k is probably a safe estimate. Might be easier/cheaper to buy a machine with one already fitted.
