Loader for x485 AWS?

roy dye I am very happy with my x485 all wheel steer and would like to get a loader for it for light duty work around the house (compost turning, mulch, etc). Would hate to make an investment in another tractor and really don't have the room for it either.

My local JD dealer says that JD makes the 45 loader for this series, but recommends it for non-AWS models. The dealer has had several customers that have flipped the tractor sideways because the AWS will let you steer the back end and get into a compromising position with the loader extended.

Has anyone had this problem?

If this indeed a problem with AWS models, could the rear steering be disabled when you put the loader on?

Paul Roy, Check out this Web site. www.superior-tech.com and look at this setup. I have one of these mounted on the front of my JD X585 and it works GREAT. It will do alot of yard work at a third of the cost of a loader.
Brian Rozema johnnybucket sr is another possibility too.

Rotates as a blade and a bucket.
