NEW 2.8 HD Quick Attach, Kubota quick attach adapter by Ai2, description coming soon. Below is the description for our previous version which is no longer available for purchase. The new 2.8 has had a few updates, one of which is making it compatible with all BX model tractors. The price listed here is for all BX models within the Generation 3 category (80 Series). This Quick attach will come with an additional pin kit needed for the 80 series tractor.
The Ai2 products Kubota BX Attachments 2.7 HD Quick Attach was designed specifically for the Kubota BX tractor. Ai2 Products came out with the original Kubota BX Quick Attach back in 2007 and the Kubota BX Attachments 2.7 HD Quick Attach is now better than ever. It uses the same basic tried and true design the original quick attach had but takes it to the next level of form, function, and quality.
The Kubota BX Attachments 2.7 HD Quick Attach still shares the same main plate design but that’s where it ends. On the back side, we added two large 2” tubes to help with twist in the quick attach and help gusset the front to back flex we saw in the previous design. Moving the tube back as far as we could help strengthen the overall design of the hitch and gives it our signature round tube design we try to incorporate in all our products.
The front of the Kubota BX Attachments 2.7 HD Quick Attach we redesign the center hook and added the radius plate at the tip to help with aligning to the attachment and help guide it into the attachment. Then we changed the loader pivot capture points to make them light yet more durable than before. They are a tab and slot design and when welded creates an inverted dual I-beam to help with side to side forces. The lock pins have been redesign as well and are cut out of a single piece of .375” A36 plate with a 3/16” washer welded to the top of it. The main reason for this was to eliminate the extra bushings that were needed for the old round shaft design. This new design gives us over triple the surface contact area on the attachment pin distributing the load of the tractor out much better. Plus when you are using our Kubota BX Attachments 2.7 HD Quick Attach, the tractor is being used going forward 90% of the time pushing all the force into the capture plates and not the lock pin.
At the top of the BX Attachments Quick Attach we add a place to park the lock pin when you are moving from one attachment to the next. A simple slot directly above the lock pin has been cut into the main plate so you can just park the pin there without losing it. There is also a small hole cut into the main plate as well so you can park the safety lock snapper pin as well and not lose it or have to hold it while attaching or detaching from any attachment. Our design still uses the large bushings for all the pins to help distribute the load across a much large area of the pin preventing premature wear. The loader pivot points on the BX Attachments 2.7 HD Quick Attach also still integrate a rollback stop and a forward stop just like the factory Kubota BX bucket does to help prevent cylinder damage in either direction.
The entire Quick Attach is constructed of 3/16” A36 plate using the tab and slot design which interlocks all of the parts, creating a lightweight yet very durable design for years of use and abuse. All of our attachments are blasted and powder coated using a Kubota orange color.
This Kubota BX Attachments Quick Attach was the first product we ever designed and manufactured and the one that got us into the Kubota BX attachments world back in 2007. It’s one of the first must have BX attachments you’ll want for your Kubota BX tractor!!

The 2.8 HD Quick Attach functions so well that Tony should include a warning that purchasing it could cost you thousands in new loader attachments. Having reached an age where diminishing strength is the norm, I very much appreciate the ease of removing and attaching implements without having to muscle anything. I have four loader implements from different manufacturers and can effortlessly switch between any of them in a couple minutes, while still maintaining the functionality of the loader kickstand. The design, workmanship, and appearance of this robust apparatus are top notch. To me, it is as useful and as much appreciated as a 3-point quick hitch.

I received my quick hitch two days after ordering it, and it is the perfect addition to my tractor. I have several loader attachments, and can now easily switch between them without hurting my old self anymore. My father was a welding and sheet metal instructor for over 35 years, and he would have been pleased to see the workmanship of this quick hitch too. As others have said, it looks so good, you are almost afraid to use it, but it also means I can look at other attachments, since I don’t have to fight them like before. This is perfect for me, because I already have several attachments that are not skid steer quick attach, and I certainly did not want to replace everything I already have. The other benefit, on a small BX, is the low weight of this quick attach. Almost no loss of lift capacity, which is the best situation for a sub compact tractor. It was packed very well for shipping, the paint is perfect, the welding is beyond expectations, and it is AMERICAN made. Thank you , thank you thank you. I seriously appreciate finding your site, and your products.
