The skid-steer loader is a great tool, but sometimes you want to do work in different ways. The idea of using skid-steer attachments has been around for some time, and Worksaver has led the charge. The company's latest tool is a new adapter that allows skid-steer type attachments to be used on tractors equipped with John Deere models 48/58 loaders with buckets retained by 1-1/4-inch pins.
The new adapter increases the productivity and versatility of the loader, and allows you to maximize your investment in skid-steer tools. Features of the adaptor include an all-welded design and plated handles, springs and lock pins. The company says it's easy to switch from skid-steer to loader.
