It is a decent loader but I have no need of another tractor with loader.......as far as I know. I think I'll "undress" her for now and pretty her up a bit and see how she handles with rear implements in place. If the loader were to stay power steering would be a must. I almost pulled my shoulder out of joint trying to hold on to her on some trails I have with a few small stumps sticking up. I forgot what life was like before power steering. I remembered quickly though!
I may re-purpose some of the loader parts to make a brush grapple for the 202, that is something that would come in very handy for a lot of the cleanup I'm doing.
The battery 2x6 will be gone soon enough once I get a lower profile battery or convert to side terminals. You wouldn't happen to have a spare hood latch kicking around would ya Tony? I believe it should be a push button no? Perhaps that's a small detail I should worry about later.
I have next week off work so I will be doing some work to it and hopefully with it. Might try to get the loader off one evening this week.
With regard to power steering, I think it may get power steering eventually even if I do leave the loader off. The 202 still has it's power steering pump in place although it might be in rough shape. I probably wouldn't need something quite as robust as the system I put on the 202 but we'll see what parts might fall into my lap in the next little while.
