    I use CAT attachments on my Bobcats.

    I know that the old ASV's had a different angle for their attachments but I believe that predated the RC series.

    I found a good deal on a bobcat 709 backhoe attachment, what would I need to modify to make it work on my NH?

    They are all the same, just a different look, but the oils they use will be different, Cat told me to avoid Bobcat's attachments because their (Bobcat's) oil will screw up the SOS at the 250 intervals.
