Does anyone know if a 1969 Ford 2000 can handle a front end loader?

I owned a Ford 2000 that had a Ford 730 industrial loader mounted on it for many years. It worked fine for my use, but if you get one I also recommend adding plenty of rear weight. They're correct you truly need power steering.

I have a 2000 with what i have been told is a ford 730 loader, power steering, water in tires. It workes extremely well. I havent yet been able to unload the rear tires. I think everyone is on the right track..... you need power steering.

I just sold a Ford 2000 with a small trip bucket fronter on it. It worked will, but with a full load in the bucket I needed a counter weight and strong arms to steer it. To answer your first question yes it can work with a loader as long as you keep it moving, stopped and try and turn the wheel is rough, that is why I have a Ford 3000 with power steering.

A slight change of subject, was the loader you had on the 2000 one of the one arm 711 series???

Hope you have either big arms, or power steering. I have a 3000D with a wagner trip bucket loader. It works well, but steers really hard.

Yessir.

Just don't forget to build a counterweight for the tractor or water the rear wheels down cause they're too light on the rear end if your doing heavy work.

Thanks for all the comments. I wasn't sure what I was up against. I don't have power steering on the tractor now but it sounds like with a loader it is a must. Just weighing out whether to keep the Ford 2000 or sell it and get something else with a loader.

Thanks again,

Mark
