Hi, I posted a message on here asking for information on what model loader would fit a JD 1020, I got some good advice, the Model 47, and also someone had put a 148 on theirs, I am finding it hard to locate a used 47, and I owned a 148 in the past for my 4620. I know the 148 is too much loader. I guess my real question is,, Where can I go to find all the different models of loaders that would fit a JD 1020,, I would like to stick with green.. without parting with tooo much Green.. JD loader wanted,, but others considered for right price.. Any info or suggestions on where to find all models that will fit a JD 1020.. PS.. thanks for all the other help and I"v become addicted to reading this page..

Hey the pic is my 1020 tractor with the 521.

I had a good deal from a dealer for the loader plus installation came to 5400. And I"m glad they did it. THe closed center hydraulics on the tractor allowed them to tap it in without me giving up my rear scv"s. It works great, and the only thing I have to change is my front wheel setup, as the original tires are too low. The roll bar was another 600 and offers piece of mind, plus its foldable...

I gave up looking for a used model, when I found one it was either trashed, or almost as expensive as a new one. Plus I had to transport it. So in my situation a dealer deal worked best.

The only thing is make sure you have the heavier duty hydraulic pump.

Hi Perry; I can vouch for the 48 loader as being an ideal match for the 1020 as one of these combinations is my "right arm" on our small operation. Ours was bought when it was traded in at hte dealership where I work. Although it had been bought new by a bridge contractor (they have a fleet of 10 or so) 30 some years of industrial type work had not hurt it too bad. I put new pin/bushings in the steering bellcrank and modified the loader for quick attatch of different buckets etc. One thing I would suggest is rear end ballast-- I use a barrel of gravel that also is quick attached on the three point hitch so its on and off quickly. This not only improves traction but makes for a better life for steering components. Have fun with your tractor,Bob

 JD1020 with a JD521 Loader in reply to PERRY MOORE, 02-12-2005 06:38:23  

It has a 521 Loader and ROPS. It can be found in the Galleries section on the left of this page by doing a search for "1020".

I haven't priced a JD 521 loader yet.

I have a model 46A on my 2510 and like it real well. It has 2 cylinders for the bucket, and has float for back dragging. 6 foot bucket. Only thing I don't know if it will fit your tractor. Russ

Ill try to help you more. I have allot of old John Deere brochures. Yes the 148 is to much for a 1020. Here are some other John Deere loaders that were made for the 1020. The 37, its not that good but is one of them. 145, 175, 520 and 521. Im sure a John Deere dealer can help you also and may know of more. I also have a brochure that has a picture of a 48 loader on what i think is a 1020.

I have #48 loader on my 1020. It works reasonable. It would help a lot if your front end is not curved. I did fill the rear tires with liguid and for heavy loads (1500LB) It does help adding more weight to the back of the tractor. take care, sam
