If you feel it's too easy to turn now, just adding the loader will make steering difficult before even putting anything in the bucket. The To-35 I got last summer had a loader when I got it, steering was difficult at best. Without the loader on it's perfect.
For just moving material from point a to point b you might be ok but don't plan on maneuvering it to do exactly what you want with it. When I got my 202 (industrial 35 essentially) the power steering had been removed and it was an absolute bear to steer even though it has a heavy backhoe hanging off the back. After a while I started tearing up parts in the steering box which are quite pricey to repair/replace. It didn't take long to figure out that power steering is the only way when you want to use a front end loader. Once I fitted it with power steering, not only was it easier to steer, it was way easier to do the work I wanted to do with it. I could back blade with more accuracy and without fear of hitting buildings/objects when trying to get close to them. It became a completely different tractor, much more useful and pleasant to use.
IMO the smaller tractors just aren't built to be used with a front end loader unless they have power steering. I tried it, thought I could live with it, ended up costing me in the end.
