    I am looking to find out around how much it will cost to put a bucket on the front of my Mitsubishi D1600. Any ideas?

    I would guess for a new one $3-4k range ... How much work are you planning on doing with it ? I had a loader on my 22hp Deere and it beat a shovel but was a big disappointment over all.
    Here is a 1650 with loader already on it.. https://www.tractorhouse.com/listing...x?OHID=7551029

    short story about my FEL from Coldwater, I stepped off of my tractor on the wrong side and got the crotch of my pants hung on the joystick of the loader valve well lets just say it threw me on the ground. The bad is when I got back on the tractor the loader would not go up. I took the boot off of the joystick to find that my 175 lbs hanging on the joystick had broken the valve cylinder that the joystick hooks to. Mad at myself I called Ray at Coldwater and he broke the bad news that it wasn't a fix but a replace of the valve. It was clearly my fault and not a loader malfunction, I knew this but was going to hate to fork out the money for a new valve. Ray shipped me a valve for $75 cheaper than I could find on the internet. Ray also talked with me on how to use my broken valve to run as a remote for the rear so even though I had to by a new valve I now have the valve for the remotes on the rear and the know how to make it work.... Thanks Coldwater ......4 stars....

    I put a new JD 300X loader on a 1996 JD 870 compact that already had the hyd controls. Cost me $4,500

    Coldwater loders come to your door complete and can be installed in about an hour. I bssroke the valve that was sent with my loader, so I had to buy another. Coldwater just talked me through how to use the broken valve for rear remotes if I wonted since only 1 of the spools were broke. This will keep me from buying another valve to run the rear remotes....$2600 total for the loader to my door

    Looks like a Koyker 80 will fit a D1650. Is that the same as yours? About $3500 plus valve. Probably budget $4000 for the project.

    This valve from SurplusCenter is quite a bit less than what Koyker offers: Surplus Center - 2 SPOOL COMPACT 10 GPM JOYSTICK CONTROL VALVE
