    Default Loader arm spacing for LA272,LA302,LA303,LA350,LA351,LA352 ?

    As stated in the previous thread, I'm shopping for B-series to upgrade from my B7100HST-D to get power steering, and a strong 3PH lift.

    I have a pin-on fork for the from FEL, which is a Woods DuAl 145 (the loader, not the fork). The loader arms are 36" apart (center-to-center).

    I was wanting to compile a list of kubota loader models, along with the loader arm spacings, so that when I find a listing online, I know if I'll be able to use this fork or not, as just paid $700 (with shipping), a few months back. I know the LA350A on a friends B2150 is 40.5" (which could work, but adding another pin plate outboard of the outboard ones on the fork.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    To the best of my knowledge, all of the loaders you listed are the same size, and spacing. I know that at least the LA272, 302, and 352 are the same at least.

    any good dealer can modify your forks to fit whatever loader. As long as the pin sizes are the same its really easy to move the mounts. If the pins are different, then its more work... but still way less than buying new forks. I'd suspect the pin-sizes are different on many of those loaders even if the spacing is the same.

    B1614 48" Standard (LA271- LA301-LA272-LA302)
    B1607 48" Standard (LA300)
    B1608A 50" Standard (LA350A)
    B1615 50" Standard (LA351-LA352)
    B1616 54” Bucket (LA401-LA402)
    B1617 60” Bucket (LA401-LA402)
    B1623 48” Bucket (LA304)
    B1624 50” Bucket (LA364)
    B1625 54” Bucket (LA504)

    You may get lucky and get away with using the same pallet fork. Pin spacing is far less critical on a pallet fork. With a pallet fork you are rarely using the extremes of the dump cylinders' travel like you would be with a bucket. A bucket will often be fully rolled back and fully dumped when it is used....a pallet fork, far less so.

    ChukcinNH, yes you are correct that the spacing is the same between the LA272/LA302 and the LA352. However, the LA352 uses larger 1" pins.
    If it has wheels and an engine, you have my attention.

    Thanks for bringing that up, I was unaware of that.

    The pin spacing isn't my concern it is the spacing of the two loader arms from each other. The loader arms on my Woods DuAl 145 are 36" apart on center. The loader arms on my friends LA350A (on a B2150) are 40.5" apart, on center. This measurement is important.

    jas67, that is the spacing that I was talking about, the distance between the arms. The spacing from pin to pin is the same too except for the diameter of the pins as mentioned above.
