    I was reading a JD brochure today for the 200 series Skids and i read about the hydro quicktatch option,it claims you can hook up attatchments without getting out of the skid,excuse my ignorance as i have only run older Bobcats were i had to get out and hook up the hoses,anyways,how does this option work?

    Don't know about the JD's but the bobcat website says you will still have to exit the cab and shut off the machine to connect the hydro's. You dont have to leave the cab if your attachment is not hydraulic.

    It would only be an advantage in non hydro attachments, such as a GP bucket or pallet forks. You just throw a switch to release the dogs and make the change. Hoses still have to be connected manually.

    Many manufacturers offer this as an option.
