I have a '46 Ford 2N, wondering about a front bucket/loader for it. Any advice, sources, etc. greatly appreciated! Also thinking about a lift bar for the back (cow lifter?) for picking up logs, rocks, etc.

If you're interested in a loader with limited lift height , there are older rear mounted loaders which work well. They are 3pth. mounted and avoid that wear and tear on the front end. I believe they were manufactured by Sedore. By the way , I happened to see one in the neighbour's yard last week and realized that I had completly forgotten about that style.

Paulson Loaders, Inc. maks a nice looking front loader for the 9/2/8N. Rated at 800lbs., 75" lift, $1400. They claim it's duty rated for the N-tractors, simple and lightweight. Goto www.paulsonloaders.com and look around (I'm not connected).

Jim's right about the other loaders, the N's aren't a great choice, but a whole lotsa 'em have had loaders installed. I use a rear scoop on mine, does plenty of work and hauls good. Ask yourself what you want to move.

Hi Paul. What brand of rear scoop do you have? I can't seem to find one except in the Northern catalog. Thanks

I just saw a rear scoop loader for a 3pt hitc @ Tractor Supply for $389. It was well made and looks like it would work well.

The N-series Ford doesn't make for the best loader tractor but thousands have put loaders on them and use them all the time. The drawbacks are the front end wears out quicker with the added load and without power steering the thing becomes a bear to drive. You'd better have good brakes because you'll be using them a lot to steer the tractor.

As for the rear, I have a set of pallet forks that are really handy. Cost about $125 new. I use them to move all kinds of things around. Especially handy for picking up the riding mower to clean out the underside of the deck. Others report lots of success moving stuff around using a boom pole. I don't have one (yet) so I can't compare usefulness of the two.
