    Default loader of older tractor

    I own a 1979 Ford 3600 that does not have a loader or any hydr. in front, is it possible to put one on this old of a tractor? We bought a kubota 4400 with loader and HATE IT. Very scary tractor, wants to turn over.

    It may be cheaper to ballast your 4400.have the tires filled/add a ballast box.Widen the wheels if you can.

    A two wheel drive tractor has it's own safety system, when you get to much in the bucket and it picks the rear tires you can't move!

    I'd check your ballast as recommended as a new loader for the 3600 is about what the tractor is worth and it is tough to find used loaders. The other part is the 4400 has more hydraulics to operate a loader with then a 3600. I'd alow down a little and learn your 4400 as they are good tractors!
