    I would get New Holland's loader since you have a new TC29.
    If I had a non current tractor model or older tractor I would get a Wood's, Bushog etc.. You will be much happier with the fit and finish of the factory loader and will be about 10% more in price than an off brand. Tractor will have better resale value with the factory loader. Color match may not be important to you, but sometimes, the Boomer loader is not the same shade of blue as the tractor.

    I have a JD67 FEL on mine, I bought my tractor used and it came on it.I do not have power steering on my tractor (note my sig) and I can steer it with the "makeout knob" one handed while operating my bucket with the other with no problem.It is also a quick connect although I have never taken it off.

    Default Re: which brand of loader do you have?

    I have a Great Bend 260 mounted on my JD 4300. I went with GB because it was heaver, twin torqe tubes JD just has one, lift more weight. The JD about 1000lbs and the GB 1450lbs. this is rated at 1930psi and the 4300 has 2500psi which will increase the lift some. I have lifted lumber off trucks up to 1600lbs with on problem, I do use pallet forks, skid steer type with quick tacth. I have a new 4400 on coming in a week and ordered another GB loader for it. Oh did I mention 2 year warranty and a 30 day money back guarrinty. My thoughts. DDT

    Default Re: which brand of loader do you have?

    I have a Woods model 1012 loader bought new at the same time I bought my tractor (NH TC33D). It's a quick disconnect, though the only time I've seen it on and off is the demo the dealer did for me. Color matches the tractor, Fit is good, lifts more than the NH 7308 loader, dump and rollback angles are larger.

    The only downside for me is that I NH's fender mount loader control made it easier to get off the right side of the tractor if I had to. I can still do it with the Woods control, but it takes a few more contortions. Since it's very rare I need to do this, I'm not too bothered by it.

    I gotta side with the same color as the tractor guys on this one. The integration is generally better it seems since the tractor manufacturers only have to make the loader work with one brand of tractor. Addionally, they have a little advantage in that they probably design the loaders while also designing the tractors, instead of as an afterthought. With three point hitch implements, which roughly adhere to a set of standard specifiations, the brand of the implement seems irrelevent, but for loaders, which seem to adhere to no standard, I think I will have to stick to my JD 541MSL on my Green Machine

    Kubota L3710 GST

    Default Re: which brand of loader do you have?

    Woods ... and I've regretted it ever since. It's a fine loader - probably every bit as good as the Kub ... but the joystick doesn't have the intermediate positions that Kub does. I had worked with an L3410 for a day before I decided to buy the L3710 ... and given the loader a good workout ... loved the lift-and-curl ability. The salesman offered me the Woods at $600 less than the kubota ... and had it in stock ... and assured me that the controls worked the same as the Kubota. Well, it does lift and curl ... but not at the same time ...

    Default Re: which brand of loader do you have?

    I have a Koyker 150 loader on my Cub Cadet 7260. I bought it new with the tractor, rather than the Cub loader to save some $$ (about $450 as I recall). It is color matched to the tractor, and it is an exact match. It is a quick detach / attach unit, and it works pretty well. No complaints.
