JD 1020 with Loader Posted by Chris42 on 06/24/2013

This tractor had seen a hard life before I ever got it. I got it from a landscaper and I would guess that his workers worked it for all it was worth.

Despite that history it has been a great machine. It is a three cylinder gas engine that is completely reliable and steady running. Hydraulics on the loader leak some, but that is because I haven't taken the time to rebuild the control valves or tighten a few connections.

The bucket is 60" and I welded a few chain grab hooks to the top of it. It adds tot he versatility as I can pick, load and unload all sorts of things from my truck.

Rated at 35 HP, it is a real good size for many jobs. It is heavy enough for digging (I put teeth on the bucket), I have a 6" chipper and a 60" tiller and a 60" snow blower. All accessories run without problem and don't begin to challenge the machine or engine.
