    Anyone done it? Thinking you could do Sanderson and JCB fairly easily or does everyone just build an adaptor and be done with it. Thanks

    I've got extra bits welded on a coupto take job q fit and Euro 8 loader pins but other than that I do have an adapter plate made up so they can be swapped

    Have JCB tool carrier(narrow for a 526) and MF 50HX on the same bucket no issues.
    Also same JCB and 3 point linkage on a transport box/man cage.
    Also Trima loader and 50HX.on a muck fork.

    Not a lot of brackets that wouldn't get in the way of the other I would guess though

    Always thought manitou being narrow would work with anything wider although the wider set would need sitting further back and might upset geometry's of some things
  5. stick to one type here

  6. Had a bucket that wore Euro brackets and Kramer brackets and you could still use both.

    Is it not easier to make one adaptor rather make alterations to all your attatchments

    We have one with euro and big BM, it's easily done feels more robust than using adaptors.

    My headstock will fit Euro 8, quicke & Trima.

    Edit. It is a Quicke headstock with an adapter for Euro or Trima so I can use all 3.

    Depends entirely on the combination of brackets .
    Some may be wider than others which allows fitmentt of one between the other but you must also be aware of the protrusion of them as the inners may protrude outwards towards the machine and foul on the face plate.
    Also do you have two dirrerent make of machines you wish to utilise both sets of attachments? If so is another set of brackets for every single attachment and the time to weld them on cheaper than two adapters, one for each machine.
    Will,you be likely to move from your current two brands of machine to a third in the future? . The adapters would be more practical, in this event, as it would not mean another revisit to every attachment to cut off and weld on a third style bracket merely a change of adaptor which, I am sure a shrewd customer could persuade a salesman to wangle into the deal and the old adapter will surely be a saleable item for someone in a similar situation somewhere.
    Only thing with adaptors is there is usually a manual locking system as the machines auto or hydraulic lock is used to fix the adapter but I am sure we are not beyond getting of the seat as often there are pipes to connect anyway.
