    Sticky: Pat's Easy Change Re: Pat\'s Easy Change System - Order Online!

    tmanpdx, $250 for a new PTO shaft was cheap! I had a new one made to replace the old "el cheapo" that came on my 6' Rhino. Cost me a little over $600. But the new shaft puts the old one to shame and...

    Sticky: Pat's Easy Change Re: Pat\'s Easy Change System - Order Online!

    I bought a set of Pat's easy change couplers (category 2 to category 1). They went on easy enough, but looked kinda like a cobble job when mounted. Mounting equipment proved to be easier, but not by...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    Well Dizno, it gets even better! When my son and I tried to mount the skid steer adapter to the loader arms it wouldn't go on, as the distance between the outside of the loader arms was at least 42...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    This loader would be fine, if the quality control was better. BUT, inadequate, poorly written, and hard to follow installation instructions, pieces that don't fit together properly, way too many...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    Because the Deere loader was made in Mexico, I decided to go with one that is made in Iowa. Why spend your money for something that is foreign made, when you can keep your money in this country,...

    Re: koyker loaders

    Years ago my dad bought a K5 Koyker for his IHC 460 gas tractor. The only thing that has been done to it was I replaced the bucket cylinders a few years ago with some from the Surplus Center, as ones...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    deere5105, thank you for the response. I have decided to go with either with the 553 or the Westendorf TA 180. The advantage of the 553 would be the ability to leave my front end weight bracket on...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    vtsnowedin, the first tractor (can't remember model, old age I guess) I looked at with a 553 loader on it was a larger model with a 4 cylinder engine and front wheel assist. The mounting brackets...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    econometrics, my bad. The tractor I looked at was a 5025 series with a 553 loader on it. The loader brackets mounted in the middle of the tractor. I found a 5300 with a 520 loader on it. The 520 is...

    Re: Loader for John Deere 5303

    I looked at one on a later model and slightly bigger tractor yesterday. The only thing between the loader mount and the front end is the engine. I think I would feel alot more more comfortable with a...
