The W.R.Long adaptor plate converts your pin on loader to a universal quick
attach loader. This allows you to connect to many currently available
attachments. If you need to convert your existing attachment to the
universal quick attach plate we can help with that also. We have
drawings on over 750 pin on loaders so we should have exactly what you need.
Our model number is APUM and the average weight is approximately 130 pounds.
Most adaptor plates can ship by UPS, however UPS will not take some due to the
weight of the heavier adaptor plates. In general the larger the tractor
the heavier the brackets.
The Adaptor Plate has been designed to be as compact as
possible, therefore the dimension from the front of the adaptor plate to
the back of the adaptor plate is 2-1/8". This helps preserve the
lift capacity of the loader. The width of your loader arms determine
how wide the back side of the adaptor plate must be. If the center
line to center line distance of your loader arms are over 40" then the
back side of your
adaptor plate will be wider than the front side of the adaptor plate. If
the center line distance of your loader arms are over 40" and the end
plates of your attachment are over 2-1/8" then you may need to modify the
end plates on your attachment or order the APUM-Special. See sketch below
for additional information.
There are a number of
companies that manufacture front end loader attachments and with this
variety of manufacturers there is also a variety of designs. The
angle of the back plate varies from 30 degrees from vertical to 0 degrees
from vertical depending on the manufacturer and attachment. W. R.
Long has concluded that using a back plate angle of 10 degrees would be
the best angle suited for most loader/attachment combinations. We
have drawings on over 750 different loaders that have been collected over
25 years and the mounting bracket designs are based on the original bucket
setting level on the ground.
Based on the information above please check your
attachment and your loader to make sure your attachments will hook up
properly and have sufficient range of motion.
