Tony, Hi!, I want to share a little trick I learned by accident about running loaders with out power steering. You have seen pic"s of my35 with a long reach wagner loader so I wont post one. I"ve been running it for a life time with no power steering. It always steered good , and I wasn"t sure why till I put new tie rod ends on it. To make a long story short , it"s the alignment.
The front was 5/8 in. wider than the rear of the tires. I changed the tie rod ends, Set it to 1/8 toed in(ferguson Spec"s) and it was almost impossible to steer. I put it back to 5/8 towed out and it steered great again. The difference is like night and day. You would think it would eat tires but it doesn"t,30 years- same tires.
I moved and spread 7 dump truck loads of dirt with it last week and I"m almost 60 with arther in both hands. Hope this helps you out-ed

Yes your idea does work well Ed, and mine has light truck tires, so no ribs to fight or tear up the place. I have learned how to deal with it, the wannabee buyers can't handle the idea of it not handling exactly like a $20k Kubota -for 2 grand?
You should have came to the FENA show, even without a tractor. I know what trailering can be like... we could have used a few more in work clothes,

Tony, Hi!, I was a traveling son of a gun in my younger days, Been in 28 of the states. Now I live and work on the same road and seldom get off of it, But thanks for the invite. I have a trailer for mine for doing local work, but I wouldn"t care to tow it that far with a 1/2 ton pickup(LOL).Cheers-ed

Hey that would have been a hit at the show! How do you keep the arms up for a trip? Don't worry about a 1/2 ton truck... you wouldn't believe what I haul with a Chrysler minivan... but the roads in both New York and PA aren't conducive to hauling heavy stuff too often...
this is the light loads in recent photo albums

Tony, Hi! All I can say about the mini van is wow. I rebuilt all the hydraulic on the loader and backhoe , They both will stay up for months without leaking down. I have to shut a valve off on the backhoe or it will leak back through the valve spool, It"s 59 years old. Looks like people were having a good time at the show.-ed
