Time to pick a loader...

Postby allenlook » Tue Jul 18, 2006 3:43 pm

Well I figure it's about time to figure out which loader I'm going to use around the homestead... I mostly use it for lifting stuff and moving it around more than anything :) Like moving my snowplow without throwing out my back, etc.

I don't have piles of manure or dirt to move around, so it's more of a back-saver device.

I've got the Henderson two-armed loader with the trip-bucket on the Super A now, and I've got the IH-1000 single-arm with the hydraulic bucket sitting on a pallet waiting to get into some action...

So which one has more capacity to lift? I like the bigger bucket on the IH and the hydraulic bucket instead of the trip, but is the single arm weaker than the double arm?

allen,
check the size of the pistons on each model loader, you can do a rough calculation on how much force the loader will have. the larger the piston size the more force the cylinder will exert. i have never seen the ih 1000 loader in action but i have rented mini bobcat things with one arm loaders and they worked great. why cant you have a loader on each tractor? ( i wish i had your delimma :lol: ) from your other posts, it is clear that you can make stuff and you can probably mount a bracket and cylinder on your henderson to eliminate the trip mechanism.

Allen,
I'm pretty sure that the IH and Henderson have the same lift capacity. You should be able to find the specs in Rudi's manuals, as I'm pretty sure he has a manual for each. The real lifting capacity limit is the front spindles on the tractor.

Me, I'd go with the IH loader because I think it is a great design, and obviously it is IH. The Henderson just looks like something that was welded together in someone's shop (no offense to anyone). I especially dislike the trip bucket. Those are a total pain in the A.

On the other hand, maybe you need to go with the Henderson, and maybe I need to make another trip up to your place to pick up that 1000. :D

I have a couple loaders here. One is on my H and I have a spare the other sits at my brothers and its the same as a cub loader but different #s it may have went on an A. I have had the loader on my H for about 10 years now and could not live without it.With my bad back its a life saver. The only problem is its a nightmare to take off and put on so this tractor can never be used for anything with hyd. You can put the loader up and lock it and unhook the hyd but thats a pain also.

Exactly. My issue is not money so much as it is time, and I need something that consumes less time, so both loaders must go, along with everything else.

I'll have to find something, anything that is "quick-connect", which means a tractor with 3-point implements and a quick-attach loader, backhoe, etc...

Have you checked into the motana tractor company? At least i think thats the name they are made in US I guess and they sell them up north like lowelville or adams or something. The only problem is they are the wrong color.LOL

Montana tractors are built in S. Korea with some final assembly in Arkansas. I can't speak to the quality.
