L12(515) Loader vs L112 Loader Question

Recommended Posts


So I currently have a Simplicity 515 loader with homemade subframe on my B10.


I am in the process of acquiring a B112 with a L112 loader with original subframe.


I realize that the tractors are different and the way the rear of the subframe attaches to the tractors behind the BGB are different.

515 loader with two brackets and L112 with roundbar and brackets.

I assume I can take the L112 subframe and use the homemade brackets and just transfer the L112 loader and subframe to my B10?

There is no difference in length of the subrames?

There is no difference in the loaders...the difference is in the subframes. As you called out, the rear mount is different (bar vs bolt on brackets), but the subframe itself is longer.

The Simplicity 990515 loader is actually the same as the L112...those were the long subframe varieties. The shorter Simplicity loader type was the 990412, equivalent to the L12. Additionally, Simplicity offered subframe kits separately, for the long and short frame machines. Kits 990510 and 990516 respectively.

There were no Simplicity equivalents to the L-10 early, L-10 late or B-1 loaders.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
