Your mini excavator works hard for you. Through long days in the scorching sun it moves earth, blazes trail and turns dreams into reality, all without the slightest complaint. It takes care of you and you should be returning the favor. Over time worn out bucket hangers will wear out your machine’s quick attach adapter and make for more expensive repairs

Our bucket ears are designed to replace the OEM Quick attach hangers on Kubota Excavators (U-17, KX41, and KX018). From our extensive experience operating machines in the field, we’ve developed bucket ears that are durable and easy to install, made right here in Grand Junction, CO.
