Re: TX Jim 46A loader specs

I do not want involved in any disputes but I agree that a 46A is more fitted to light work on a new generation(2510,2520,3010 or 3020) than a 148.Maybe I fixed to many broke off frame bolts in a 4010(they work loose and you do not know it because the loader mounting frame hides them).I like how the 46A pushes from the rear axle.But for heavy jobs the 148 is alot heavier loader and will take more abuse than a 46A.A 148 would be a better fit for a 4010,4020 or newer Deere.

Actually the 46A pushes from the very front of the tractor plus the rear axle mounts.

Yes I know and those front bolts carry a fair amount of weight as I broke them off with a bucket full of manure once,thankfully it was on the wide front 3020 and not the narrow front as that would of been alot bigger problem.When we used 46A's for all our loader work we would change the front bolts once a year.Handling hi-moisture round bales was more than likely the cause.

Have had two 46As (with the larger cylinders) for a long time; 1st one was bought new in '65 with the first of our 4020s; second was bought used sometime in the '80s. Used 'em to feed silage (from 'pit' silos) 'til we quit silage and went to big round bales in '85 or '86. Took the buckets off and have had (homemade) bale forks on ever since. They'll handle a 24 inch/14 foot red oak log, but you don't wanna be bouncing around with it on there. Ended the problems with the front bracket bolts a looooooong time ago:

Do you think that 24" diam/14' log exceeded JD's advertised lift capacity for the 46A loader?? :wink:

Don't know exactly what they'll weigh, but according to my calculations, it'll be somewhere in the neighhood of 2700-2800#. My dad bought the first one (I was still working for him) and I don't remember why he chose that one; probably a combination fit the tractor/it was heavy enough for what he wanted and was easy on and off. They can be mounted/dis-mounted in 5 minutes or less. I bought the tractor and loader from his estate after he died.

How about a JD 47 loader? Just bought a 2510 gas with one. Never seen them in any books. Iplan on just moving round bales with it. Neer seen any pics or stands for them

The 47 is Deere's first quick attach loader.They were nice to take on and off.Do you have the bracket that attaches to the engine head and goes to the rear of the loader mast?This makes the 47 a much more stable loader. Many 2510's are missing this bracket.The 47 with hard use can tear up the side frames if the mountng bolts work loose,when new Deere had a plate that went under the bolts behind the side frames.The 47 could also be used on the 1020 and 2020 tractors but you need different mounting brackets and the rear mast frame is different on the utilities.The 47 is a good match for a 2510 and makes a nice looking outfit.If you ever get a chance buy a broke up welded up 46A for parts as the cyclinders interchange.We have bought several loaders for the cyclinders and buckets then scrapped the rest.Also a 47 and 46A use the same buckets.

Check out this link... The 47 loader is covered in the same sales literature as the 46A
