    Quickattach offers good implements as well as others. What I would reccommend (from personal experience) is NOT to jump over a dollar to save a dime. I bought a bucket and save $1,000 or so from an "off" supplier. Yea, it fits, but it does not fit tight on the skid and wiggles up and down. The quality is not there. Spend the money right the first time and buy quality even if it means spending a little more or you may end up buying twice.

    the quick attach, has been a great attachment. no fitments issues, and even after shipping it was cheaper than the "john deere" branded attachment. We had one problem where one of my employed unhooked the bucket and forgot to unhook the hoses.... I had new parts within 3 days. Cuostomer service was also great.

    I buy another attachment in a heartbeat ....

    I have their heavy duty dirt digging bucket on my machine and it works great. Very tough and seams indestructible compared to other bucket manufactures.

    I have a Quick Attach grapple bucket "Saber Tooth". Very nice bucket,


    This Winter I bought a Virnig Grapple bucket. Looks very well built. I have not used it yet.

    I like the Bradco because the teeth are straight instead of curled up.
    With the other grapples you end up tilting them down and they disapear behind the bar that you step on getting in the machine.
    Takeuchi also requires longer hoses.Make sure you order it for a Takeuchi.
