    Default Ordering a front end loader

    For those that have had to order a loader, how long did it take to come in? Few days? Week? Longer? I just ordered a 553 loader for my tractor and salesman said he'd call when it came in.

    I had to wait about two weeks for my H260 last month. It came from Mexico I believe.

    Thanks. Have no clue where this one is coming from but just said he'd order it and call me when it came in. I figured dealers would keep some in stock since most buyers get loaders when buying a tractor but I guess with all the different sizes that's be tough to do.

    Gonna hang onto your 5203 for a while longer? Startin' to think you were sizen up the new E models for a jump.

    Oh in still waiting on the E's to come out with a power reverser! Just wanted to get a loader now for this tractor and when I make the switch ill just keep the loader for the new tractor. Too many dead trees that have fallen that need to be moved to put off getting a loader any longer.

    You going to be cutting them in 6 foot lengths to move with your new loader. Or are you getting a grapple. Or are you going to use chains and drag them?

    they're mostly just pine trees that have been struck by lightning and fallen across roads on my property. I'll probably just push them out of the way to clear the roads.

    Same as the bucket on the 4310, 73", but it's built much heavier. It also has holes for teeth.
