|Bob Grove||Can you get a front end loader for this model tractor? It is not very powerful, how much would it lift it it was available?
|Al||You could get a FEL for a garden tractor (the next category down from your compact ag tractor), and I've seen 15 HP diesels match 20 HP gas. Capacity depends on the condition of your pump, though they're pretty bulletproof, and on the FEL's cylinders if it's used. The bucket will be sized to the tractor, and should lift a heaping load of soil or gravel.
If I may offer some minor cautions, fitting and installing is not a job for most amateurs. On small tractors, especially with turf tread, it's good to have 4WD when you need it, and with a full load under non-optimal conditions you may need it. Ditto for PS. With a loaded bucket raised high, go slow, especially on turns. (If it tips, it's easiest to pull upright from the raised bucket.) For balance you want a rear implement or rear weights (FELs are much more rarely installed in Japan on compacts than in the US - but Yanmars are designed with reserve capacity so you won't break a front axle or blow a tire).
|Norm||Loaders are available. Lifting capacity is anybody's guess, depending on your rearend ballast.
|tony||you could probably go with a bushhog brand FEL model QT1846 that is what I put on my YM1700 and it works great. I purchased mine from a local dealer approx. 10 yrs back and the price was about $3000 for the loader.all mounting brackets worked (no modifying) Had it plumbed from the pump to FEL to the rear end. made a set of forks for it also and it lifted over 500lbs. hope this helps you.
