    Unless you have an older machine, most attachments are pretty universal, except, as you said, adaptors.

    Some hydraulic attachments may require different flows and pressures to work properly.

    the actual mounting plates seem to be universal now. i think Case was the last holdout, had an oddball one in the late 80's. i can tell you we switched from 100% bobcat to 100% caterpillar, and all the grapple buckets, hydraulic hammers, and augers all interchanged no prob. may have an issue with a real small bobcat going to a large machine, but then you wouldnt use the same size tools anyway.

    Gehl had it's own connections until the mid 90's, and after that everyone pretty much standardized the hydro hook ups.
