I've got a loader for sale in Northern NJ for $450. It's on a 881 and might fit an 8n since it has different holes on the back axle bracket for different tractors It's complete with front pump, works as it should with no leaks. Not trip bucket, has down pressure,
any questiopns or if you need measurement please let me know. send PM

That looks like a nice loader. I wonder how much it weighs. Almost seems like it would be large for an 8N.

Unless you do a lot of engineering and fabrication to come up with something for that loader you bought. I still think it's a lost cause.

One of those things that is theoretically possible but more trouble than it's worth. I know what you mean though about what's available. I live in an area that doesn't have a couple N's sitting and rusting in every other backyard. I was very lucky to find the one I've got and I jumped on it right away. The last one I saw for sale in my area a few years ago was sitting on the side of the highway going into town and a guy was sitting in a lawn chair beside a For Sale sign. When I came back by on my way home in about an hour and a half, it was gone.
I figure once that the subframe is mounted, then the loader wouldn't be bad it to get on and off. Would only have it on when I needed it.

I think you'd have to build some kind of frame that would hold it as you drove into it and out of it. Sorry but nothing about using that loader on an N sounds easy. As I said, a lot of engineering.

That loader only uses 2 pins to keep it mounted and it stands up by itself... As it is on the trailer in the picture. You do drive into it though to mount it.

Easiest loader to mount and dismount on the market. I'm pretty sure it will require a full subframe to make it work. I don't know much about an N frame and mounting points. If you can get it done it goes on and off in less than a minute.

Yeah but that is on a tractor it was built for. As I said, if that's what you want you have a lot of engineering and fabrication to do.

It's the same loader that Caryc has on his 8n only double pistons and a bigger bucket.
You will probably have a good amount of fabrication work ahead of you with the one you have. Let us know how it turns out. Don't forget you will need some kind of counter weight. Good luck.
Here is a shot of the davis loader it might help you with some ideas for your frame

I found this image if an NAA(???) with a Bobcat loader mounted to it (don't remember where I snagged it from). Man do they look good together.



It will probably be a while before I will have my 8N back home to even think about how to get it mounted - It's about 35-40 minutes away helping to clear out some trees for firewood on the weekends (14 cord and counting). I've only had my 8N at home for about 36 hours since I've had it.

Why are all of the old style loaders that are on the N's so far ahead of the tractor? My guess is for more reach... but if they didn't do well will loaders, then they should have kept the buckets up tight to the machine so it didn't aggravate the issue.

The back of the bucket on my Davis loader is 35" from the front of the tires. As I said, I use it plenty for repair of dirt road work and have no problems with it.

I'm wondering if you ever installed the loader, and how it went? I'm considering looking for one of this model, for my Ford 1620.

I never installed the loader. I was able to get a new Deere 3032e @ 0%. I sold the loader to a guy near Nunda, NY (to use on his 80's Ford tractor) and shortly thereafter the 8N was sold to a guy in Naples, NY (put to work running a sickle bar mower). If I hadn't purchased the 3032e, then I surely would have mounted the loader (or try really hard).
