All do respect, I think I'm more in center field when I say putting a loader on a tractor is hard on the tractor, the front end especially, no power stearing. The trip buckets are junk. Very slow hydraulics.
I saw where guys put a loader on a tractor backward, putting the lifting weight on the rear wheels, like a fork lift. Might be hard to drive, bet it can lift more and easier on the tractor.
I was going to buy just a loader. Glad I bought a backhoe. Didn't realize just how handy the back half is.
Not trying to upset anyone, just voicing my $.02.
