    I grew up on a Nursery with a 8N with a loader. We had it for many years. The bucket was probably about 48 to 60". I remember the tube frame of the loader was the reservoir for the hydraulic fluid so it may have had a second pump. It worked fine as a loader and I loaded many truck loads of loam and peat with it. I'm looking for a 8N for my collection.

    Go to www.valbysales.com and select PTO shafts then scroll down to rear mount loaders. Makes for some good reading.

    up to 3 years ago i had a ford 2n ( almost the same as 8n) and it had a fel on it, this fel was kind of unique for this trator as it had a power dump(most had a mechinical dump) this allowed for scraping and a sembelemse of backdragging, although there was no down pressure. was a lot better than some of the older units i had but it sure was heavy and stuck way out. because of the weight and the long distance it stuck out it had a tendency to off load the rear end, especially if u got he front wheels going down hill. i know i have some pics of it . i will find them and post them in a few min. hopes this helps

    Nice pics Frank, I do remember those old FEL's mostly used by small contractors. But I am sure if someone wanted a good all hyd. one that Allied has one that would fit it.
