    Default Great Bend Loader Question

    I have found a used Ford 1920 with a Great Bend loader. Does anyone have any opinions on this brand? Quality, capacity, durability, etc.

    I have a great bend 260 loader on my JD 4300 (bought in Jan) and I felt the GB was stronger than the JD430 loader. I have put over 200 HRS on my tractor so far and I really like the GB loader.

    Scraper,
    I also have a Great Bend loader (220) on new B7500 and I also think it is a real strong loader and I am happy with it to.

    good luck Darin

    Scraper, a few months ago, I looked at a Great Bend loader and almost bought one. I was very impressed with the capabilities, quality of construction, and price. They are not as easy or quick to detach as most original equipment loaders, but you can live with that if you're not in a hurry. What caused me to buy original equipment is the incompatability of the loader sub-frame with my mid-mount mower. They both attached to the same frame location, so changing from one implement to the next would be very time consuming and a big hassel. Otherwise, if I didn't need to use a mid-mount mower, I would have bought Great Bend.
