In Reply to: Front Loader for Super Major? posted by ZZZeke on March 31, 2014 at 23:14:38:

I think that loader will be a pain in the butt to put on a super major. I put a loader from a new series 5000 on a super once.

it was a whole load of fabrication even although they are similar sized tractors, the only thing they really had in common was blue paint in fitting that loader.

The only part of the brackets original to the loader was the uprights/ cylinder mounts. Every thing else I custom made for the mounting frame.

Looks like the muffler will hit the mounts, the front brackets taper in, the major is probably wider than those brackets/ that tractor it's on now. The rear and front mounts will probably be miles wrong for the major mounts. The steering linkage will probably hit the mounts also.

Basically I figure it"s not gonna work easy if it works at all.
keep what you got or find a loader that fits the major, then sell the whole package if you don't need the N. if you can"t find a loader, you need the tractor and a tape measure, to figure out if the loader and mounts are wide enough, that you are looking at.
That front pump probably will need work to fit the crank shaft drive as well.
I have done a few loaders on other tractors and it"s not always easy, or worth the materials/ time to convert them.
If you can"t do it your self properly $1500+ can soon disappear.
Not trying to put you off just warning you what this can turn into in a hurry.

Regards Robert
