The Freeman Loader on my 4000 was sold to me as being "for a 3 cylinder 4000", and I got it cheap enough that I didn't pay attention to the way the frame was setup until I got it home. I don't know what tractor it was actually designed for, but it bolted right up to the holes in the bolster and the frame rails were about 5 inches shy of reaching under the rear axle, but there was already an extender bolted to the holes at the end of each frame rail that gave me an extra set of holes 5 inches farther back. The extender was welded C channel with the open side facing down made of 1/8" steel plate with holes drilled into the top plate to bolt it to the loader frame rains and the rear axle. They were pretty worn, mainly the holes had been wallered out, I suspect from it being used with the nuts &bolts not being properly tightened. I replaced them with rectangular plates of 5/8" steel with the same holes drilled in them and put red locktite on the threads when I tightened the bolts down. That was 9 years ago or so, and it has held up well, although I don't do a lot of heavy loader work with it. I imagine you could do something similar to extend the ones on the 345D loader to make it reach the rear axle of the 5600, and maybe even weld the plates in place on the ends of the frame rails once you get everything lined up properly to make it stronger.
