    Default Front End Bucket

    Can a front end loader be added to a YM2000B?

    Yes, but there is debate about 2wd being able to let you use it effectively.

    I have a 2000BD with a Koyker 120 that bolted right on with no issues. I leave the 4wd off until I need it, which seems to be often since I stink at working the loader/tractor. 4wd seems to let me screw up and get out of situations.

    Good luck

    The YM2000 is large enough that it can be fairly useful with a loader. I don't recommend putting loaders on anything 2wd much smaller. Although I do have customers that want one installed on smaller models. They usually have a finacial limitation & want to use a loader instead of their back.

    Just make sure you counter ballance your tractor. I run a boxscrape and suitcase weights on the back of my 2210. I am thinking of filling the rear tires up but that is another story. I dug a 3 foot little pond with mine. Just had to have a long ramp in it and use just the bucket for the last foot! I had fun and it did a good job. Saved my back with the Carolina Red clay.
