Bolens trade for JD

I have a John Deere 18 with a 44 front loader, No mower deck or other implements. I have a gentleman that wants to trade me a Bolins with all kinds of implements and front and back hydraulics. My questions are can I find a front loader for the tractor and cost roughly.

Would you consider the Bolens to be a stronger tractor? This one has a larger motor on it. Thanks

This is an HT 23 with front hydraulics and 3 pt on back and attachments. will be looking for a front loader if I do the deal but would like to hear some perspectives from Bolen's owners if it's a good trade since all my JD has is front loader and no way of putting a 3 pt on it

Re: Bolens trade for JD

The Bolens is a heavier tractor than your 318, for sure. With the foot pedal hydro, it is a great set up for a loader. Finding one will be more difficult than finding a JD loader, and prices on large frame attachments are not cheap. Easier on the wallet than JD stuff, though.
