Has anyone had any experience with a 1070 diesel as a front-end loader tractor? I'm doing a little research on them and was wondering if anyone had any advice to offer on that subject. Any common problem areas to watch out for when buying one? What's good or bad about them?

I have been working on tractors for quite some time, its hard to beat the old 70 series case front axles, as a matter of fact we have been retrofitting them onto 3020 and 4020 jd tracors because they are so much stronger than the stock pieces, the 70 tractors are good units, the only things we have seen in the shop for major repairs are powershift problems related to the tourque plate that trasfers power from the engine to the power shift and internal planetary problems due to leaving the tracor idle in neutral with the powershift lever in reverse, this slings all the oil off the planetary and it runs dry. also if there has not been any engine work done and it has over 5000 hours, check the rod and main bearings, we have had alot of guys mess up the crank on a good engine because of spun bearings that were just worn out.

I have only used the tractor this season. I started farming on my own after working for another dairy farmer for eight years. We put up 1000-1200 wet round bales per year the last few years I worked there. We did replace the front wheel bearings in the loader tractor after one went out. After that we were more careful about tightening and packing the front wheel bearings every spring but that was an 85 Hp tractor of a different color. I dropped the front wheel of my tractor into a tile blow out the second time aroud the field mowing hay the first time this summer.The thing stoped right now spinning the back wheels and throwwing me into the steering wheel. I put the loader down on the ground and tilted tines until the front wheel was suspended over the hole and backed up.Moved on with no damage that I can tell so far.That is a good way to brake a front axel or knock the front end out of whack.

Good luck with your tractor choice. Jon Kaiser

Hi Jon:

Dropping into that washout sounds like it was quite a shock. You're lucky nothing snapped. I've had a couple of sudden stops like that over the years. It's funny how bady you get jolted around, especially when the speed of the tractor seems so slow.

Thanks for your help with the 1070 info

Thanks for that info. That's just what I was looking for. Have you had any problems with the front axle after so much heavy lifting? 2,000 pounds is a pretty heavy lift.

I have a 1070 with a Du-al 3100 quick att. loader. I like the power shift for going between 1st gear and reverse without reaching down between your legs to shift but I don't like the fact that you can't start out in a higher gear than 1st on the power shift. If you want to do loader work in number 2 mechanical and number 2 or 3 power shift. You have to shift the power shift through 1st and so on every time you clutch the tractor as it returns to 1st each time and it won't let you start out any higher. I find that while loading round bales out in the field that I want to travel faster than 1st power shift while I am driving to the wagon.So I do alot of power shifting 100-200 round bales a day.We move 2000 # wet round bales for silage with the thing though one on the loader and one on the 3pt.Hyd.seem to take it just fine.Did all that make any since?
