    Just wondering what everyone has for different attachments for their skid.

    Im looking at a back hoe attachment for my Bobcat S300. Really like the look of the Horst Welding Big Arm. Seems to be one of few that can be controlled from the cab, but have the ability to swing.

    Ive got buckets, 8ft snow plow, forks, and a spade (to dig out rocks, tree stumps ect)
    I have over the tire steel tracks also

    Got someone doing a bit of welding for me and Im making a quick hitch trailer reciever
    Ill post pics when I get it done.

    Post some pics guys, especially of anything you have made ect.

    IMO bobcats tilt tach is one of the most useful attachements going... for doing grading work

    I just looked that tilt tach up. never seen it before. basically its a quick tach after the quick tach that allows any attachment to be rotated. any idea on cost?

    I think I am going to make something like this.
    I think the boom would be great for unloading and moving the plows at the end of the season ect.

    I agree, also handy for building trails thru hills as you can cut into hill to level trail. As far as attachments go I have to many to list but basically everything you can buy except the real expensive ones those I borrow from others who borrow the ones from me that they dont have. We have also built many of our own attachments some very simple but effective and some are very innovative.

    For my s300 I have a 80 inch smooth bucket, 80inch toothed bucket, pallet forks, hay spear(for round bales) and a 8ft bobcat brand snow plow. In the next few weeks I will be ordering a small bale handler from Steffen systems(http://www.steffensystems.com/Handlers/Small_Bales/5510-1.htm).
    Before winter I will be getting a 9ft snowwolf plow with wings and a 100inch snow bucket :}

    I would be very curious how the bale handler works. Please either pm me or post on here thanks

    Well i don't have mine yet, but I had a old farm hand, and have ran friends. They KICK A$$. There is a bit of a learning curve and just like everything they have there weaknesses. Some guys use them to load out of the field ( they pull a accumulator behind the baler). I just use them to load trailers out of the stack and unload at customers barns. You can load by your self or it goes really fast with a helper on the stack(to re arrange your tie tears). You can load 350 bales in 20 minutes.

    Too many buckets to try to remember, but my favorite is the 2.5yd bucket!

    Broom/bucket sweeper attach
    2 forks
    harley rake
    home made log splitter
    Probably a couple i am forgetting, and my more recent favorite:

    Split-Fire log splitter- Sit in the AC and split firewood forward and backward!
    It splits on both cycles of the cylinder. Two sided wedge is great! Split in the heated cab in the winter, AC in the summer. Sure helps a bunch. Better than the 3pt splitter on the tractor.
