I built a chickenhouse, but I need to raise the floor with dirt. I had thought to get a loader for my H to do that with. Question is, Will a loader on a 48 H raise high enough to get over a 6ft wall? I realize Ill need to chain the bucket so that it dosent beat out the wall when tripped, just dont know if the arms will raise the bucket that high, as the bottom of the bucket sets at least a foot lower than the arms.

If you want a loader, get one. If you have to rent a skid steer every time, there will be a lot of jobs that just won't get done, and if you have the tractor and loader ready to go, there will be a lot of jobs get done that you never even thought of doing, and quite a few of those jobs will be something that you never even thought of using a loader for, such as pulling fence posts, or moving that old wash tub that your wife has flowers planted in, or etc, etc.

I've got a McCormick #31 loader on an H Farmall. With that loader raised all the way up, I can easily walk underneath the bucket without ducking my head, and I stand 6 ft. tall. Those old #30 and #31 loaders can usually be purchased for $200 or less.

If you are going to get a loader, get a loader.

Really don't think ya want one of those old trip bucket types. On their best day they only had marginal functionality.

i've seen quite a few Farmhand loaders on H's and M's...you can stack big round bales 2 high on a semi trailer if you got enuff weight in the a$$ end.
they make good tree trimmin loaders too...i bet they go up 10-12'

I can't speak for other loaders but my Super Six would reach over a 6' wall.

In this picture the loader is not all the way up.

Sometimes, rather than encumber an otherwise nimble tractor with a loader, it is better to rent a good Bobcat for a few hours and get it done that way. Dunno how many tractors you own but I sure wouldn't burden my only tractor with a loader.

Dont understand you. Burden my tractor. Do u mean that its too big a load for the H to handle? Do u mean that ill leave it on if I have other tractors? Well, I do have other tractors. I will not leave it on. My dad didnt and I wont. Ive got a need for it, and if I get one and do that job, Then itall come off.

I thought I had made myself pretty clear. Maybe not.
If I had only one tractor I would not want a loader on it. Unless I used it for loader work most of the time.
If I DIDN'T use the loader MOST of the time I would not want it encumbered with all that iron on it.
For a little plowing, mowing, raking, hauling a wood trailer, etc a loader makes a behemoth out of an other wise nimble tractor. Especially an old one that does not have power steering.
I suppose the ideal would be a quicktach loader of some sort. But around here a quick tach will cost you more than an H would.

Well, since I dont have a loader, I guess the question isnt too important. I could save some money I guess, and not get a loader, and just whizzant in enough dirt with a schovel and wheelbarrow to raise the floor in the chickenhouse 16in or so 10 X 30ft
