Must be where you live. The models I listed above all have hydraulic buckets and with the exception of the Ford Industrial Loaders (aka Dearborn 19-97 and 19-105) are readily available just about anywhere. The Ford industrial models are less common but still show up on a regular basis. Wagner Iron Works (Milwaukee) made lots of the WM3 and WM4 loaders specifcially for the 9N/2N/8N tractors and both are fully hydraulic. Their follow on step through design Power-Loader models were introduced for the NAA and are also compatible with the N-series.

A Want Ad posted on the Ford forums usually turns one of the jungle gym pipe loaders up in short order. The step through models are only a bit harder to find. Heck, you can even use something like a modern Bobcat loader if you are modestly handy with a torch and welder. The issue there will be finding an adequate source of hydraulic power for the loader and that I can supply ;-) Of course by the time you are done you could have bought a nice used 4WD Kubota or Thousand Series Ford with the money you have invested. That Bobcat loader does look right at home though.....

I've been to many auctions and enjoy looking through ads but very rarely have I seen what we are talking about. Around here it seems farmers did one of two things. They made do with the existing older outfit or when they considered upgrading the loader they up graded the tractor too. By the 1960's tractors offered features such as high volume hydraulics, power shift, direction reverser, etc. that enhanced loader operation. Some kept the old tractor/ loader combo but more often they were traded off then some residential type bought the old outfit. A few instances some of the older Farmalls received a modern loader because the newer IH 2001 loader readily adapted because the chassis layout was similar to the newer 504, 656, etc..

Just the first example I found - took about 30 seconds on eBay.

Davis Fully Hydraulic Step-Through 8N Loader

Another 30 seconds on Craigslist finds this (overpriced) WM3 about an hour from me. They are easily found if you want one.

You can find (nearly) anything if you want to travel far enough. The E Bay listing you mention would be a day's drive one way and have over 500 dollars worth of fuel spent to get it for me. Not worth it. I checked after church this morning and I see nothing within 125 miles of me. Did not look further away. Nobody is saying they were never made. I am addressing the OP's question in terms of availability in 2013. I do look at ads for things like that as I have an 860 I am thinking about selling and it might be more attractive if equipped with a loader. If the OP wants to search for and find a loader for his N series tractor then he should do as his heart desires. He has been made aware of the alternatives.

JMO here but I doubt you'd get your money back putting a loader on a tractor to sell it.
