    I have a chance to buy a bucket that was on a KX121 excavator. I want to put it on my 161. Do you guys know whether it will fit. I think it will but not sure. Thanks

    If the bucket is in good shape you have the lugging cut off and made wider I don't know what you have on the machine are they pin on buckets ?

    If I remember correctly they will not fit. Where I used to work we had 121-3's and 161-3's and even though a 2ft bucket is made for both models, the 2ft for the 161 is significantly larger/wider. I don't think the ears for a 121 will fit for a 161. Now ours all had the Kubota's QC addition but regardless I don't think it'll work.
