One doesn't need a manual for that, it's just plain old common sense. Of course some people are just naturally a little light in the common sense department. The old steel butt bucket on my 8N reminds me of that fact every time I get on a hill with it. Get on a hill sideways with it and the old solid seat makes it seem like the whole tractor is leaning over, which of course it is. The hills I go over are only on my property and I've been up and down them for twelve years now on that 8N.

Every loader operators manual I've ever seen tells the operator to keep the bucket a low as possible because that loader changes the geometry of the tractor. Heck even that Michigan 5 yard loader I ran had caution labels telling to keep the bucket as low as possible. We had a local guy here, bought a JD 350 crawler loader. Fist day using it laid it over on it's side cause he was running it with the boom all the way up, empty bucket, turning on a side hill.
Guys don't make excuses for novice operators or those who confuse safety with luck. We, as a group, play with toys that can kill us. Lets keep our friends and neighbors safe, alive and in one piece!

I agree with you Bob if you have a bale spear and round bale hanging off the bucket. After tearing up my fence a couple times with that empty bucket down, I usually leave it up if it's empty. Particularly if I'm dragging the riding arena. Too easy to catch the fence with a long snout.

I got the biggest kick out of that Umbrella. I imagine after burning up the day before, on the way to the barn that morning he snagged that sucker right out off the patio table.

There was a guy that live in my area that had a tractor with an FEL and a back blade. I used to see him working on his property once in a while.
He had that bucket about three feet off the ground and he had a small German Shepard that would sit in the bucket. The trouble is that he couldn't see the dog from his seat. If that dog suddenly fell out of that bucket, he would probably run right over it. Every time I saw that, I wanted to smack that guy. :evil:

If you look closely, maybe he has his bucket at that height to get that cross piece on the frame in the correct place to attach his umbrella shaft to it.

My '52 8N has the identical Wagner loader. Jungle gym, yup. I have a replacement if I ever get my butt in gear to change it.
Bucket height? Depends on what you are doing. Years ago I was clearing snow off the driveway. I raised the bucket high to get up over the garage roof. Oops! I took down the telephone wire to my house. Years ago I was using my 6' Woods mower behind the 8N. Oops! I didn't have it high enough and wiped out about 8' of my deck railing.

I grew up in Georgia, and we always called it breakfast, lunch and dinner. Supper was a big meal on Sunday, usually. :P
My first four or five years haying, I used my 8N to cut (sickle bar), rake, bale (NH 68) and transport. That’s a lot of implement changes!

What's a hay skid, and what self respecting farmer calls dinner lunch? Around here it's breakfast, dinner, and supper. A little lunch is what you ate between supper and bedtime.

A lot of farmers kept their horses after they bought their first tractor, and kept putting up loose hay with their hayloader and wagons. If they wanted bales made they would put the hay up in stacks to be baled at a later date.

Dinner was the biggest meal of the day and at noon, supper was still as big meal but not quite as big as the noon meal. And breakfast was always morning. Noon became lunch when you started working away from the farm and noon became lunch as it was a small meal just big enough to hold you till evening when that became the big meal of the day so it then became dinner as that was the biggest meal of the day.

When I was a kid the buckets were removed when haying. A chain and old tire kept the arms from going too low.

"at this point Royse quits farm-en and goes and gets a job in town"

Close. I joined the Navy instead. Our only tractor at the time was

a John Deere two cylinder. No loader. Double duty for the pitch fork.

It's also common to tip a tractor over while doing this. I have a neighbor that drives a tractor down the road with the bucket all the way up. I've warned him about this a few times. He's been lucky so far, but anyone's luck can run out when they least expect it.

There was a time in this country that you had one tractor. You mowed the hay, took off the mower, hooked up the rake and windrowed. Unhook the rake hook up a hay skid. But you only take the rake off and hook up the skid once and thats the first time you ever raked hay because that is what makes the wind blow 30 to 40 mph all night. So you unhook the skid, hook up the rake and dont forget your pitch fork because with all the wind it blew your windrows into the fence and that means lots of hand labor and off and on the tractor many many times. ( at this point Royse quits farm-en and goes and gets a job in town) You spend most of your day in the hay field. Next you feed all your animals, but not your 14 milk cows they eat while you hand milk them and thats farmer multitasking.Two days later the one farmer who in 50sq miles has a bailer shows up and 2 or 3 of your neighbors show up with their ONE tractor ea. one has brought his hay skid and his 2 sons. Now you hook up a hay skid to your tractor and head to the hay field. One neighbor stays and positions a elevator to covey the bales to the loft of the barn. This fellow has a JD A or B he hooks a large canvas belt to his clutch drum and the device that runs the elevator. A hay skid follows the bailer and one or two guys ride the skid and hay hooks the bales and stack them on the skid. When they get a full load they head for the barn unload the bales onto the elevator into the barn where someone stacks the bales.The 2nd skid is now loading bales and cycle goes on till noon,,,, not a minute before or a minute after noon. Lunch and all you can eat roast, spuds green beans and homemade bread and butter pie for desert. After that back to the hay field same as morning. Everybody quits before dinner heads home and milks their cows and eats dinner. Next day same thing. When one farmers field is done they then will go to farms of the guys that helped you hay and you help them. This goes on all summer, between cuttings tractor is mounted with a culivator to do beans and corn. Oh------- the loader on this photo he will need it on because he scoops up all the free fertilizer from his farm animals and puts it in a pile so he can use it next spring. Now I dont really know why his loader is on but with one tractor you have to do things differant then like today most have three or four and it saves a lot of time.

I would have sold that loader or pitched it in the 2 foot pile.

Climbing on and off a tractor with a jungle gym loader is not going
to work for me. I need one I can get on and off without climbing.

We all use what we have though.

I have to agree with Bob on driving it around with the bucket all the way up.
It could be one foot off the ground with the same visibility and less problems.

I'm always amused when I see someone driving around with the loader bucket up in the air like that.

They must enjoy driving a top heavy piece of equipment that rocks and rolls with the terrain even more than it needs to!

Having gotten that off my chest, GOOD looking tractor, laneallen!
