SG-BPH-8-4-9DPDT - 8 Pin Female to Delphi 2 Pin Harness - Attachment Side - 4 Output | Skid Steer Genius
This is the harness that people have been blogging about all over the internet. We custom built these harnesses for a few people because we felt sorry for them as they have unknowingly bought Bobcat branded attachments that were 7 Pin compatible only. They were unaware that these attachments will not just plug into their new Cat 8 pin equipped, ASV and Terex machines. These attachments were designed specifically so you cannot do this.
As an attachment manufacturer, this makes no sense to us, but whatever. We never can understand how large corporations operate. 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. To keep the kit easily adaptable to the most attachments possible and all of the different machine types, we have made this available as a kit. The 2 pin connectors are installed as well as the 8 pin.
We have now shipped thousands of these and have added to the database daily. Keep checking back weekly as we will continue to update the results on this page so you can see exactly how to install this harness on your attachment.
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. 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 reality. The other end plugs into your 8 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.
This harness allows for control of 4 solenoids. On Bobcat attachments, this does not necessarily mean 4 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. If you have enough outputs, check out our 6 output harness if you need to control more 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.
Use on Cat or ASV or Terex machines using a 8 pin Deutsch output.

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.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hello Robert! I am proud owner of your harnesses! I am connecting a Bobcat Mulcher to a Cat 8 pin machine. I have ONE solenoid with two Delphi connectors on my Mulcher. I have ONE Deutsch plug connected to something on the block where all the hoses are attached to. The hoses are labeled „A“ and „B“ only on the hydraulic block, of which „A“ does have a male plug on the end (towards my machine) From what I understand...the green and orange pairs are used for the solenoid (Delphi connector) - but which one to where? Or does it even matter? Which I assume it doesn‘t. the white pair would go to the single connection with the Deutsch plug? And that should be it?!
The stack of two solenoids are for opening and closing the hood. If you don't have the hood you do not need to connect anything to them. The single solenoid is for the brake. You have to power it for the wheel to spin up usually. If this is the case you will be using the white wire to plug into it. On your dash you have a switch that will have to be turned on to power the solenoid and release the brake. When you are done you flip the switch the other way and the brake is applied. It is not always this way so the best way to tell is to plug the hoses in and run the hydraulics with no electrical and see if the drum will spin up. You have to verify direction. I have never seen a block that does not have a P and T stamped on it next to where the hoses connect. Clean it very carefully and look for these stamps. Your female connector should be connected to the hose on the P side and the male on the T side of the hydraulic control block. If I had to guess, the A is the pressure and since it is a Bobcat attachment it will come to you plumbed backwards. This is all done on purpose to make it difficult for people to swap attachments and machines around. All you do is swap the couplers on the end of the hoses. Nothing more. If you are spending more than 5 minutes on this, you are doing something wrong. It is important to swap these couplers because you can roll your controls to operate in reverse and they will work but most machines will not output High Flow so yes your attachment will operate but it will be slow and lack power and you will always wonder why.
