Hi all, so after some massive luck, I've found our old Massey up for sale on Facebook marketplace, pretty much in the same condition we left it in,only with 100 more hours, the owners are asking 12.5K or 8600usd. This is more than we sold it for but it's still cheaper than most stuff now.

What I am wondering however is would a brand new loader off of a 1725 or 1723 fit the 1705? Even with minor modifications, just since I'd very much prefer a loader on it, but can't justify buying a brand new machine to fit with one
I'm pretty sure the newer models could also be got with the DL95 loader, which tells me if you could mount either one on the newer model tractors, you're good to go with your older 1705.

But just for general interest, I wonder if the subframe is the same for both the DL95 and the FL1805?

I believe that the parts that are bolted to the tractor are different. But this is only based on images I have seen of the top of these arms and how the FEL is mounted

Oh that second one is from the GC2400, that's quite a ways old. On Dmacleo's thing by his name, it says it's a 2010 model.

The loader mount bolt pattern on the tractor has not changed since the introduction of the GC series. The loader model has changed 3 times and as a result the mounts have changed 3 times. The loaders and mounts are not interchangeable - you need the correct mount for loader. If you have the correct mount for the loader than any of the 3 loaders will physically mount onto any GC tractor.
