    You won't know you needed a FEL until you get one. I got my first one three years ago. Everyone said that once I got a FEL I would wonder how I ever lived with out one. They were right. The uses for a FEL are endless. The best use for my FEL is saving the wear and on my back and body. With the newer QA loaders it only takes a couple of minutes to mount one. And although we don't get as much snow here as many it's nice to have a loader mounted on the tractor in case of a heavy snow.

    I hurriedly closed my shop and took off... opened it the next day and my cat reproachfully told me he had been locked in. You need to know this is a most special cat...always seeks to do the "right" thing.

    Discovered later that he had used the small amount of dirt remaining in the FEL for his sand box... made emptying it easy

    Without a loader, you have a large riding lawn mower; with a loader you have a tractor with versatility to do many jobs you wouldn't have tackled before.

    I wouldn't be without one.

    I can't imagine having a tractor without a loader. Main use for mine is as a diesel powered wheel barrow. First use for mine was moving about 22 tons of gravel to put along a patch through the woods to keep it from washing out or my tractor from sliding down the hill.

    The loader is great for both hauling mulch and tossing the mulch pile.

    The loader makes it easy to remove one of the front wheels: built in jack.
