    Hello first time user here..
    Information I'm looking for pertains to compatibility of buckets between JD excavators . I have a 160CLC with 4 different buckets that are utilized for different tasks ,digging ,ditching ,raking etc. I'm considering adding or updating to a 200DLC .. will my 160 buckets fit on a 200?

    Short answer is No... However, I bought a 200 once that was owned by a guy that already owned a 160. He had a special jrb coupler on it that grabbed 160 buckets. 2 years ago I would have given you a heck of a deal on that coupler, but I sold it to a guy that was gonna modify if to fit his machines..

    Another option is to have new ears put on the buckets.
