Anybody have an idea or done it ?
I have been quoted about a thousand dollars for one called uni-tach.

Doesn't look like its worth a grand.

Are you talking about a three point hitch quick hitch or one for the loader that uses a hydro to attach other equipment? The three point one will work as long as you have the same catogory three point.

sounds like your dealer is similar to mine...and that's why I now own more than one color. The easiest thing to do is sit him down in front of a computer and go thru the build your own for a 300cx and it'll have the option for the carrier with pricing and bundle code.

I have two questions:

1) What tractor/FEL do you have?

2) Why? What does the JDQA not do for you? It's fast, lightweight and effective. There are only three things that work well on a small tractor-a bucket, small grapple, and forks and all three are readily available in the JDQA setup. If you have dreams of running implements made for skid-steers (SSQA) you will surly be dissapointed.

I'm guessing this is for your 3720? The part your dealer is talking about is an adaptor for the JDQA-SSQA, the one Shack is mentioning is a replacment for the JDQA I'm assuming, the later will require modifying the bucket or getting a new one. I'm also kinda curious why your looking to convert, I had to make a QA for my little Kubota because they didn't offer one from the factory but there seems to be a large selection of JDQA miplements available.

Is it to have some flexability borrowing stuff? Because as kennyd said, a lot of the skid steer attachments are a little on the heavy side for the CUTS.

I have a 3720lot with a 300x loader. A friend has a tree spade attachment for a bobcat i wanted to be able to use. I think having the 300x instead of the cx complicates things.

Oh ok, I think we all assumed you had the CX, the only other company I can think of that makes the adapter you need is called ATI (http://www.preseeder.com/PDF/TachAllQAFlyer03_05.pdf). They only sell through dealers but might be worth looking into. I think any SSQA adapter is going to cost a bit, only other option I can think of would be to make one if your fab skills are up to it.

I don't think a tree spade will work well on your FEL. You do not have the weight or lift capacity of a SSL.
