Fitting Loader to my new Tractor

First obtain Tractor and Remove rear window and Roof




Lift Loader using chain block attached to Tractor




Insert Tractor Lift Arms into Loader and remove chain block




Lift loader using tractor lift arms to full height and then using Farm Jack lift front of loader to correct height. Block up loader using nice freshly cut Ash slabs.




Drive Tractor into loader and fit pins and Hydraulic pipes.  




Clear up aftermath




I was absolutely knackered lifting pulling and pushing, But it all works first time

If only you had a loader you could have had that on in a jiffy

Something, you might consider, is to get rid of those front tires and put the proper 3 ribs on, much better steering with those on.

Those front and rear tyres where on my old tractor I swopped them. The rear ones are off a massey Ferguson and are huge. Not sure about the fronts ? But only reason I kept them is that they have loads more tread. But your absolutely right turning in wet ground is a problem.

We put landrover type tyres on loader tractors as they have much stronger walls, ribbed tyres have weaker walls and can split as they are not built to take loads.

I assumed that's why these where fitted, because of the loader load. I have a Pair of Landy wheels on a bowser that have really good tyres I may try them. Ive heard a few folk say that they have re-drilled landy wheels and fitted them. Im just popping up to the back field to retrieve bowser and have a measure

You might be right, but I suspect it was just the cheap option.

We have the ribbed wheels n tyres in the shed for the non loader tractor when needed but have seen standard wheels have stress cracks from loaders to i think the loader bouncing over rough ground would be a big reason for this too. All the best hope they are right size slipster
