Best Way to Use a Loader,,

Recommended Posts

dlcentral

on an older trac like a B1,B10, etc. go in pile,pick up material put material in wheel barrel to move it around. With no steering assist,you better have strong arms! lol..I used one last yr to move heavy topsoil,now that's a workout!MovingFeathers,mulch or tools there fine.

With my loader I learned to only turn the steering wheel while the tractor is in motion. Otherwise it is very hard to turn the wheel with a scoop in the bucket XX(

Pretty easy to fix that problem in a variety of different ways, roller bearing thrust washers on the front spindles, taller and narrower front tires, or add power assist from loader pump or hydro. A loader on a Garden tractor has severe limitations with weight in the bucket, it also has those same limitations with a box blade, plow ect. Look at it this way, a GT set up with a loader is like a big tractor with a loader in the same way a RC plane is like a real plane. Physics RULE! and weight and mass change everything

Why would you put the load in a wheelbarrow? Was that tongue in cheek?

I only have a Johnny bucket but I operate it with 4" Tri-ribs on the front and Armstrong steering.

I am always finding things to move and most are a lot heavier than a load of feathers.

I spent 6 hours yesterday spreading manure with my loader.

I felt like the king of the mountain. Loads were kept low until I dumped them in the manure spreader.

Been moving manure here too, and got a couple more hours of it before its all done. Use the Deere 314 w/ loader to load up a country mfg manure spreader pulled by my Sunstar.

I grafted power steering into the Deere from a dead 332 diesel. Much much better than manual, even with the tri ribssm01

I agree with Willy, I would never part with mine either. I installed the spindle bearings (aka poor mans power steering) also and it helps a bit but still hard steering with a load in the bucket or forks.

The other thing...since I upgraded from 1 1/2" to 2" dia cylinders on my bucket I can scoop a full bucket with the "light material" bucket which ups my capacity from 300 to about 500lbs per scoop....I did need to get BIGGER fluid filled ags on the rear & heavier rated fronts...but I love it!!

I've toy'd with the idea of moving my Kwik-way loader over to the Sunstar (power steering, heavier tractor, etc...)??

Here is my Loader Project if interested...
