Loader on a 716H?

Recommended Posts

jlasater
Am I asking for trouble (broken spindles or frame) if I build a loader for my AC716H? I'm talking about one able to lift up to about 5ft high or so. I'd build something like this: [url]http://www.weekendfreedommachines.org/albums/Karls/aam.jpg[/url]

If you build one just make sure you tie the loader frame to both the front and rear parts of the tractor. You need to do this to keep the tractor from flexing at the bevel gear box which is in the middle. [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=8271[/url]

Hey Smilin, are there any part numbers on the cylinders your loader has? Most of the projects I've seen have big cylinders on them that were origionally designed for AG use and to my eyes, look a big ungainly. The one's on your loader look nice.

This is made by Kwik-Way. I don't have any part numbers. These are basically similar to whats sold to fit the new Legacy tractors. www.kwmanufacturing.com

I am in the process of building one on a B10. I built a complete subframe from the front axle to the rear axle housing to eliminate and stress n the bgb. I also replaced the tie rod bushings with ball joints and put ball type thrust bearings under the spindles. I am not finished yet so I do not have any results. I am aiming at a 500 pound lift capacity to 72". [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/darylcress/DCP01940_3.JPG[/img]
