Here’s the last bit of Osage. Always seems pleasant temp wise when I start then the wind stops blowing right after I start & the pleasantness immediately disappears....
Nice work @heavy hammer , how's the weather out your way, wet or dry?
It looks like you will have a good water supply to keep them growing. The plant food you are using (quickcrete) should keep your new trees growing straight!
I am guessing that unit mounts on the loader? I have seen them for skid steers & 3 point mount. Our 3point mount we hang from a tree limb or can be hung from rafters/trusses in a shed. That unit I would probably just set on a pallet to keep it off the ground.The Danuser EP10 auger drive came in, but it has skid steer style flat face fittings.
Could I use this adapter set? - Amazon product
I'm not very savvy on the hydraulics.
Does anyone have advice on how to park it when not in use? I was expecting a manual of some sort, but no dice. I was thinking about building a parking stand out of wood, but I'm pretty sure I'll bust that up with the loader.
Edit: Connect under pressure flat face couplings aren't too bad and would probably be good for the long term for my tractor. Eventually I'd like to replace my remotes with flat face as well after reading about how much cleaner they are.
It's a FEL mounted drive, like for a skidsteer, but offset to the operators right. In the photo the side of the mounting plate that attaches to the loader is facing down.I am guessing that unit mounts on the loader? I have seen them for skid steers & 3 point mount.

Thanks, I looked at the fittings and they are 1/2" pioneer snap fittings. I'm going to swap out to the new flat face style and keep my old fittings just in case. From what I've read the flat face couplings do a better job of keeping dirt out and the fluid from leaking. I swap the grapple on and off frequently, sometimes multiple times in one day. Eventually I'll replace the remotes with flat face as well.I am guessing that hydraulic couplings for your loader unhook from the tractor with snap-couplers? There should be marking on them telling you what brand name & a serial/model number on them. You should be able to cross reference to see what will work. I am unaware what type they are for your particular tractor. Most of what we use are Pioneer ends, John Deere are different & so are Case IH. Pioneer are a pretty universal end, at least in my experience. I would just take off the ends that came with the unit & thread new snap ends on. When you start getting things all stretched out/extended with couplers/adaptors they are easy to break off especially on skid steers & loaders. They often leak from excess slop/wobble. Does that babbling make sense?
