For those who may be looking, a reputable dealer in Indiana has a 45 loader kit listed on eBay with shipping included! Not my listing. These are very hard to find. Check it out.

I bought a 45 loader last year with a X758 and some other assorted goodies attached to it. The owner wouldn't sell anything separate, so I bought everything. The tractor had very low hours (under 60). The loader appeared to have not been used. I sold the tractor within a couple weeks and kept the assorted goodies. I figure that I have about 2K into the loader. I'm happy.

Last fall I was still hunting for a 655. I was looking at one on a used-equipment lot in PA when I came across a 45 FEL sitting out back. It looked nearly brand new. I asked how much for it and they said $2750.

I drove home and thought about it some, and came to the realization it would be a lot easier to put together an X748/9 package with FEL than a 655 package. I called that place a few days later to buy the 45 FEL, but it was sold. One of you guys probably has it. 😂

In April, 2021 I got an x485 with 45 loader, mower, 3 pt hitch, weights for $5300. Kept the loader and 3 pt for my x495. Sold the x485 with my snow blade for $5400. You might call me a "free loader"
That’s definitely the way to get one. I got mine from Ruhl’s repair in PA and had it shipped down to me. The total cost for just the loader was over $4k.

You beat me to the punch on that one. I believe that I called Ruhl's minutes after you purchased it.
I barely got it too. Someone else had committed to buy it before me and Daryl called me back like 6 days later and said he couldn’t get financing.

I am curious about this part, too:

“Complete plus plates to mount on new X7 series”

So it has the standard subframe AND mounting brackets for X7 Signature series? If so, that is a bonus.
Yeah I couldn’t figure that out either. Why do people post so few pictures and details?
