SG-BPH-14-10-9 - 14 Pin Female to Bobcat Grader | Skid Steer Genius
7 Pin Bypass Harness (6 Output) For Bobcat® 96" & 108" Grader Only
This is the harness that people have been asking for. We custom built these to work with our Super Controllers and allow our customers to operate the Holy Grail of attachments. The Bobcat Grader! Most people are unaware that this attachment will not just plug into their new Caterpillar, John Deere, JCB, Case and other skid steer brands. This attachment has an electronic Gateway Controller that is designed specifically so you cannot do this. We are putting an end to this on every product that every manufacturer builds where they try to lock you out. We provide the key in a simple and inexpensive manner.
We started as attachment manufacturers and felt that the 7 pin option was only designed to block users from running their attachments on anything but Bobcat® brands. There are so many hostile customers out there that we felt that we could help, so here is the deal. We built one of these to see if it would work. Our customer was more than happy to help out with feedback of how he used the harness. We posted this to our database so we could help the next guy. He posted the results to an online forum and then our phones starting ringing off the hook. So we now operate Skid Steer Genius as an example of how to actually help people and not hinder them.
This is item is pinned to operate on our Super Controller only. A toll and schematic is provided if you would like to re-pin it for your application.
How Does it Work?
Bobcat® branded attachments that have a 7 pin harness installed have a computer installed on the attachments. We run our harnesses directly to the solenoids on the attachments from your skid steer loader. Bobcat® installs a computer right in the middle of the action. In most cases it is total overkill and not needed. They have only a few attachments that have a lot of functions that need more than the usual 8 or 14 pin outputs on every other brand in the market. In our opinion, it has more to to with marketing. They are under the mistaken thought that you will only ever buy Bobcat branded attachments. Instead, it just costs you a lot of money changing them back to the way that every other manufacturer does it.
Our harness bypasses their computer and plugs directly into the solenoids and brings the attachment back to modern reality. The other end plugs into your 14 pin harness on your machine. The only issue we have seen is if your machine is not wired for enough outputs to run that particular attachment. Example. Kubota SVL75 & SVL90 loaders only have two outputs. This will work OK on items like brooms, but not much more. Not sure why they did not think ahead an allow for more outputs, but that is just the reality. As of June 2014 Kubota added an add on button controller to allow more controls. Check out the Genius Super Controllers for an easier installation at 1/3 of the cost.
Bobcat® Cold Planers: These attachments have 7 solenoids. 6 are for control and one diverts the flow from the drum to the controls. Most skid steer loaders have 6 switches for control so they do not have enough to operate the Cold Planer. The only machines that we know of are the Kubota SVL's with the enhanced controller. This controller has a 7th locking function that allows you to operate the cold planer properly. We are working on an alternative to allow all machines to run this attachment. We are also working on a harness to allow Kubota's to plug right in.
This harness allows for the control of 6 solenoids. On Bobcat® attachments, this does not necessarily mean 6 functions. They often use two solenoids for each function so we rely on you to check this out prior to ordering or check our published results to see if we have already done it. Check out our 4 output harness if you need to control less functions. Believe it or not, we actually sold one of these to a Bobcat® machine and attachment owner who was continually having his attachment shut down due to so many connections coming out of his 7 pin. By removing the 7 pin controller and all of the wiring attributed to it, the harness was able to cut his down time to zero. He was very happy.
Now the disclaimer. The "Bobcat®" trademark and logo are registered trademarks of Bobcat® Company.
This is not a Bobcat® product. We are not affiliated with Bobcat. We have not copied anything from Bobcat. We are not in any way trying to make you think you are buying a product from Bobcat® nor are we trying to make you think you buying a product endorsed by them. We expect them to tell you the same thing. After over 20 years of designing, manufacturing and selling some pretty incredible skid steer products, we know what we are doing. We stand behind this product 100% and guarantee it will not affect the operation of your machine or your attachment. It simply bypasses the common language CanBus computer on the attachment and plugs directly into the control solenoids. It does not interact with the machine in any way. We believe this to be a much more reliable way of operating an attachment. Fewer components always means less down time.
