    Default Fitting a loader

    Has anyone fitted a loader to the 2WD Yanmar (YM1500) I was told to be careful as the front end may not take the load. What width bucket have you used?

    Thanks Coldwater,
    Thanks for the confidence - sounds like I've got a good one (Yanmar) I've fitted a mid deck grader (rough home made job) and it does an awesome job. I give it a rough time, and the only thing that's malfunctioned in 8 years is the starter motor. (and, dare I mention a persistent oil leak from the PTO) It's one tough little tractor!

    If you were in the US a Coldwater Loader would be perfect but i think the shipping to Australia would kill the deal a little.....

    Yep, I should have paid a little more attention to where SandandStones was from.

    Not Bad at All, if you can ship them to Australia for that i think you would do really well. Realistically i dont think its possible unfortunately. Even your tractors plus loader would be a good deal to buy here. Good second hand Yanmars are way too expensive.
