    Default How much does it weigh? Grand L3240 Loader

    I want to take my loader off when I plow (so I can turn around inside fences) but I need the weight for traction
    Before I go to a scale and disconnect the loader, back out from under it and weigh it, I thought I would ask here.
    I will add weight to make up for the weight of the loader when I take it off.

    I can't find any specs on the weight of the loader.

    It's a 724.
    Anyone?

    I don't know exact weights, but wouldn't be surprised to find your loader/bucket weighs 800-1000#. You will not be able to add back in that much front counterweight...

    Usually you see a few hundred pounds of suitcase weights max - limited space...

    I was figuring to put a couple of suitcase weights on the loader mounts too, behind the front tires.

    just ignert thinking on my part.

    The manual I got with my loader covers the LA514, LA724 and the LA854. It states the approximate weight for the LA724 is 1168 lbs. This is without the bucket. Depending on which bucket can add 300 to 400 lbs.
