    Default Had my LA524 FEL installed today.Pics

    So after much discussion and at one point thinking about selling, i decided to install a new FEL on my tractor. Initally I didn't buy one with the tractor because I had one "handy" next door on the L3240. However over the past couple years I'm tired of borrowing. Seems to operate smooth as on the Grand L and handles a nice load. Of course my tractor has a "bumpy" ride with the extra weight of the FEL, but seems worth it. After pricing the New L60 and the addition of the DEF additive emmision stuff I made a decision rather easy... I'll post a couple pics even though it's like the thousands already in the fields...

    If I knew I couldn't have the FEL installed when i bought the tractor I would've went ahead and bought it. However knowing that it was always a "option" i opted out. I have easy access to my dads l3240 however like I said before I was tired of borrowing. It was money well spent and I've already dug up 3-4 stumps today that I needed out of the way..I'm impressed with this loader.

    The addition of a counter balance on your 3PH will help with the ride quality to some extent, but a bit rougher ride seems to go with a FEL. Even though we have several tractors with loaders, we still won't buy a new one without it.

    Yes the counter weight will take some of the bounce out and help with a lot of other issues. As easy as these loaders come off and go on, I just leave mine off unless I need it.

    Yep, mine goes on and off quite a bit if I know I am going to be mowing a safe, flat area; much smoother.
