    Hi Jeff , well the price is right but I doubt if it will fit as your 220 is a little larger . what you have to confirm is the size of the pins in your dipper/ bucket and the bushing size in the pin grabber . also the width of your dipper stick (at the bucket) compared to the with of the pin grabber . if you purchase it and it does not fit, you might end up spending atleast a grand to get it fit your machine . The bushings are not a big problem as you can either have them bored out or a filler bushing installed, but if your dipper is wider that the frame of the pin grabber , then it could get expensive .

    IF that is a coupler for a Deere, it will have 80mm pins, 11⅞" between the ears, and 18½" center to center of pins. I used couplers like that on 9030B Case for years. They are OK. Problems (if they could be called that) they only properly fit buckets that have the exact center to center distance and then if you are running a ripper or digging in rock they tend to work loose. Reason being there are two big eye bolts that pull the pin grab tight and they work loose. There is a safety so you can't lose the bucket. As far as the center to center, it is NOT recommended but in a pinch you can grab a bucket that has the pins slightly farther apart. Hope this helps.
