Ensure the attachment is compatible with your skid steer or loader model.

First, position the skid steer or loader on a flat, stable surface and turn off the engine. Engage the parking brake to prevent any movement during the setup process. Approach the attachment slowly, aligning the machine’s attachment plate with the attachment’s mounting points. Lower the boom and tilt the attachment plate forward to secure the connection.

Next, engage the hydraulic lock to secure the attachment in place. This involves activating the locking pins that hold the attachment securely to the machine. Double-check that the pins are fully engaged and that the attachment is firmly connected. This step is crucial for preventing accidents or detachment during operation.

After securing the attachment, connect any necessary hydraulic hoses. Ensure the hoses are clean and free of debris before attaching them to the machine’s hydraulic ports. Check for proper alignment and secure the connections to avoid leaks. Once connected, start the engine and test the attachment’s functionality by performing basic movements and checking for any issues.
