I hear people sing the praises of the C-50 FEL, but not much talk of the C-40. Is the C-40 comparable with standard FEL's one would find on Kioti, NH, JD, compacts?

The C 40 is a fine loader and yes it is comparable with the others out their and it also has a quick disconnect bucket,The C 50 is just such a brute as far as ruggedness goes,but theirs nothing wrong with the C 30,40 loaders

The fellows with Bransons, who until recently had no option, have zero complaints about the Ansung(C-30, 40). If you have a super deal on a tractor with a C-40 installed, I would buy it in a heartbeat. If you have a choice and for a few hundred more have an opportunity to get a C-50, I would go that route. The control location and ease of removal are worth the difference! JMHO

I have the C-40 on my 3520 and love it. It does all I ask. My only complaint is the location of the joystick, which occasionally hits the hand throttle. And Woodbeef is right (for a change /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) that the specs are better on the C-40.

Thanks for the input. I think I would go with the C40 if the location of the joystick was similar to the C50. I know that may sound like a trivial point, but it is the last of many that turned the tide of my decision and go with the C50.

My last load of Branson's came in a few days ago and the mount for the loader valve has been completely redesigned. You should start seeing these on dealers lots soon. It is an improvement.

Please don't keep us waiting. What has changed? Pictures of old and new, if you get a chance, sure would be helpful.

Signed... still search for my new CUT.

Here is a picture of the current loader valve mounting system on a Branson. My next post will show the new mount. The current mount works fine, but this is better.
