Hello everyone and welcome back to our excavator series, and in this video I’m going to show you how to change a bucket on one of these 3-ton Kubota KX 27- 4s.

To start with you’re going to need your operator key and you need to get yourself into the cabin follow me. Right as always when we get into our machine and we make sure we use three points of contact.

Now we’re safely in the machine just pop your seat belt on and then you can begin your pre-art sequence. Now that the machine is running we going to drop our left arm armrest and we’re going to pick up the bucket using our boom.

And then we’re going to come over to our quick hitch button what we’re going to do is crowd the bucket all the way around to the left-hand side. Go over to on our quick hitch and then engage the unlock button. You’ll see that the other buttons will light up. And we going to crowd the bucket all the way around to the left to release the pins.

Now that you can see that the pins are released you can lower your bucket to the floor. Now you can move to your new bucket or new attachment and couple up as normal. And then what you want to do is crowd it all the way around on itself as far as it will go. And now we need to hit the lock button on the quick hitch controls. Once we’ve hit that button, crowd the bucket around and you’ll see that the pins will engage properly.

And then complete a small shake test and put a bit of pressure through the bucket on the floor to ensure that it’s connected correctly.
