Is the Davis loader the only one that will fit on the tractor? Thanks, Like to know also what size gas motor would be in it. He did not know but said it run and started good.

There a good number of brands of loader to fit the N series tractors. Ford at one time made them as did a number of other companys. Larry just drop by some time and drive this 8N I have you you will find you will not like it. Hard to steer if you have any thing in the bucket. Plus it doesn't have live 3 point or live PTO which for what you want a tractor for would not be any good for you. You need to find a 601 or 801 series ford model 661 or 861 which would have both live PTO and HYDS plus could also have power steering

AFAIK, you can still buy NEW a new loader that will fit an "N", perhaps WOODS or Allied/Farm King.

You might want to check with a local dealer that sells small tractors. They can almost certainly find you something that will fit, if they are willing to look/call their suppliers.

In my opinion, the 8N is not a good machine for a front end loader. The front end is not designed for the extra load and it will be VERY hard to steer. I have a Ferguson loader that I took off mine. I would look for a newer tractor if you have to have a loader.

If you only knew how much dirt and gravel I have moved with an 8N and Davis loader, you would re-think that statement.

As I posted before, the "trick" is to "use" and not "abuse the loader/tractor.

We have just purchased a Davis 101 A loader for our 9n Tractor. If anyone knows how to mount this to a 9N I would appreciate an email. My husband and I are not sure how it is to mount. Thank You in Advance. Melanie

I agree that loaders are nice to have. For my uses, the loader was more hindrance than help. I have never used a Davis loader, but my Ferguson was not practical for me. I had it on my tractor for about a year. I took it off and have not put it back on since.
