Re: let's see your front end loaders!

this is a loader and 350 lb backhoe (micro hoe) i built 20 years ago for a cub cadet 149 and 5 years after that swapped it over onto a Ford 1110 compact diesel.
the backhoe became an extend-a-hoe during the swap for some extra digging depth. works pretty good.
i have 600 pictures of these implements on other tractors here Gallery , there are some folks on this site that have built them over the years.
there are a lot of really talented folks out there good with steel fabrication and hydraulics, it's nice to see.

very interesting, someone put a "40" decal on it, wonder if they tried to sell it as a 40 at one time? I have both a Johnson 12 and a John Deere 40 and they are very dissimilar. But both are fun. Congrats, after you see how useful they are, you'll probably keep the extra just in case the other one is down for maintenance or loaned out to a very well trusted family member.....not saying I have any of those, but I might if I did

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

I sold the above loader. It bolted right to the guys x700 something tractor.

I am going to keep my kwickway to put on a 318. I found out it had been modified to fit an ht23. I am going to run it off the tractor hydro for now and see how it does.

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

I have the loader on my 318 running. I am running it off the tractor hydro ports but I have been pleased with the performance. It is not terribly fast but with 75 pound starter weights on the wheels and 270 pound operator it will lift the back end off the ground.

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

Progress... progress is good

Speed is not terribly important on a hobby GT loader as long as it gets the job done..... it's not like you're batting flies with it.

I have similar "operator ballast" and wheel weights for my Johnson 10 loader but also added 230lbs behind the back axle.
Keeping it shiny side up is most important.

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

Ok so I just found this thread. I made it through 50 pages before I can't see anything straight anymore. I would really love to get a FEL for my 140 or 300, but I want a self contained unit not one that runs off the tractor levers as my 140 is an H1 even though I have an H3 kit to put on it. I have looked at the Bufford buckets and no, not going to work for me.

So what am I looking for? A Johnson, JD 40 or 44.

This tractor was built off a really nice HT23 that I bought that was just a mower. Has the power steering, cruise control, and transmission cooler.

Everything is bolt-on factory equipment. It is very handy, and I have a lot of fun with it. My mom calls it my Tonka Toy, and as you can see, I plan with it in my big boy "sandbox".
That is some cool stuff right there!

It's kind of like the bucket scoop that you can buy from JD but with a few extra features. It will hold nearly 7 cu. ft. and can lift just over 300 lbs.
Looks like it works well for you. I need something independent from the tractor levers.

Speak for yourself, Larry. I clear 7 driveways when it snows, and it snows often in these parts. A slow motion loader is not an acceptable option.

The ones that you listed, or a Kwik Way or a Wright Way. There are a couple of others less well known but just as useful. You just need to make a subframe to mate any of them to any GT.

The length of the arms from post pin to bucket pin is of some importance. Some are shorter than others and the long arms (65.5") don't work the best on the smaller GTs. The bucket is too far out front. I originally had my loader on a MF12 which is similar in size and weight to the two that you have, and loader arms of 56", or thereabouts, would have been a better fit.

The self contained units have the fluid reservoir incorporated in one or both posts, a valve set that stays with the loader, and a separate pump that needs to be driven by the engine or PTO. The pump is sized according to the cylinder sizes. Too large a pump displacement can result in control issues at higher engine rpm and too small results in low speed even at WOT.

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

This thing is handy as a front shirt pocket! I need more rear ballast. Probably going to fill the rear tires with rim guard, add 50s to my starter weights, then put my 3 point hitch on the tractor, and put weights on my driveway leveler.

good info. So I am looking for 56" arms in the kwiqway/Wrightway, johnson/or Deere 40-44.

the giy I bought my beat up 332 from had a 455 with a 44 loader but he wanted WAY too much for it than I could afford.

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

Pic of my ‘86 Kubota B7200HST with my X485 with Buford Bucket. Have since sold the BB.

Kubota is much more capable but the X485/BB combo was ergonomically much better. Not a whole lot of difference size wise.

Hey Bob, how's things in the great white north?

You're right, 7 driveways far exceeds a hobby, it's a day's work for any GT. And all too often, they all need doing again the next day.

I have a PA/HF pump on my Johnson 10TC and only run the Kohler K at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle as the loader becomes too fast and jerky.

Mind you when it's 20 below and the wind is howling, nothing is fast enough.

I just picked up a hard top / soft cab for the blower tractor. Now I got to find time to install it before winter.

It will take me 2 hours to clear 16" of snow from my driveway alone. It's 165' long and varies in width from 11.5' to 34'. But my snow dump is another 80' past that by the time I go around behind the garage so I'm actually clearing about 250' of driveway.

I normally run about 2/3 throttle, but by the time I finish, I'm in the groove with the controls and might have bumped the throttle up to full bore and am wasting fuel. Best fuel economy is about 3/4 throttle.

The big snow is what slides off the house roof if the weather warms during the winter. I have 12 squares of vinyl coated steel roof that drops 11' into 40' of my driveway. This year, that was 11' of snow accumulation and made a pile in the driveway 42" deep and over 12" wide. It took 2 hours to make just one 4' wide pass from end to end. I wanted to take pics, but time was not my friend. The 2400 lb SCUT was delivering full bucket loads of snow and ice up more than a 20% grade to the top of a 7' pile of snow while wearing turfs without chains.

That snow is packed hard enough that my son hung our 6000 lb 3/4 ton on it one year. A blower won't touch it. I tried with a 400 lb 4' Pronovost without the shoes. It did about as well as the pickup. A loader is the only thing that will move that stuff . . . one overfilled bucket load at a time.

Guess why I have a SCUT TLB for a third of an acre of property?

Re: let's see your front end loaders!

Built some wood pallet forks, had to move some pallets of firewood and wanted to try if the loader was strong enough for the task. Real forks with a quick connection so I can get the load close is high on the list now. Amazing how strong wood is!
