    Default Westendorf WL-42 loader on Deere 4020?

    My JD4020 has an old Deere loader originally intended for a much smaller industrial tractor (a 1010 backhoe) and the loader just isn't sized right for the tractor and sits too far forward. The loader has several problems problems (leaky cylinders and deeply pitted rams) and I'm thinking about replacing it rather than dropping the bucks on repair.

    I have a chance to pick up a Westendorf WL-42 loader and was wondering how well this loader will "fit" my JD4020. Also, no brackets are included and hopefully someone can let me know how the Westendorf loaders mount? If anyone has a WL-42 mounted on their 4020 pictures would be greatly appreciated!

    Edit: This is a "New Generation" 4020, not the newer CUT with the same model number.

    According to Westerdorf (Front-End Tractor Loaders by Westendorf: Shade Canopy, Snow Plow, Hay Equipment), the WL-42 is the recommended loader for the JD 4020. Westendorf should be able to supply the brackets and detailed mounting instructions. Good luck.
