I'm in the process of getting a 2640 with a factory loader. I understand that loaders can be hard on front axles, so what options did Deere offer for the front axles? Thanks

Welcome to MTF
Info obtained from viewing 2640 parts catalog reveal there are 3 types of frt axle options. Non adjustable width,heavy duty adjustable width & swept back adjustable width.

THe least desirable for loader application would be the swept back axle. Either one of the straight axles would be acceptable and should be reliable for loader work. If axle components are greased properly, they last a long time. If before 341,000 serial number, the bellcrank is especially vulnerable to damage due to lack of grease. After 341,000 does not have a bellcrank.
