Dang! I was interested in buying one of those new all-Iseki Massey’s. Not anymore! I have noticed the Kubota loaders use a lot more steel in their designs so I’ll probably be going orange.

Man, I'm sorry this happened. You seem a lot more calm about it than I would be. I am in the same camp with those that think MF will warranty it. Bad customer relations spreads like wild fire. It would be bad for business not to deal with this.

Was moving dirt today when all of the sudden my loader started going down all by itself. This was crazy looking. You can see in the photos that the loader sub frame View attachment 802798 gave way on both sides. It appears to be either bad welds or cheap metal. Either way, it’s nuts that it would do this with only 140 hours on it.
geezz. I have seen tractors break into at the trans & engine before,this is unreal,wonder where massy is having these built? I would scream warranty on this if it was just dirt in the bucket

You get what you pay for.

Almost all loaders made are made by alo and painted for whatever tractor you own. They are made to fit each tractor model. They are super and there people will get to the bottom of what happened. Dealer put my loader on incorrectly,they made it right,and then reimbursed me for the work I did.Every alo loader comes with a parts diagram and instructions in detail. Some dealers put the loader on,but can't follow instructions

Dang, that sucks! Definitely looks like the one side had lost it's weld across the top for a long time already. Which is odd because clearly the side welds were stronger than the metal itself, causing the tubing to rip apart instead of also failing on the side welds. Was it really even welded across the top?

It appears to be poor fabrication. I would definitely take it back to the dealer and try to get a replacement under warranty.

I'd say it's just built too light for the size of the machine period. My GF has a MF 1529, everything about the tractor is minimal. Not a pound of extra metal anywhere on the machine. It would not lift a full bucket of dirt so I checked the pressure relief and it was set 300 psi low. I set it to max according to the manual. Now I'm wondering if the loader is even capable of withstanding working with the pressure set at max. I park it next to my '57 IH 330, no comparison on the robust design. They really do not build them like they used to...

A truly bizarre event. Happening on one side? Maybe? Both sides? Not a chance! Bad material, workmanship, and design!
