Come on, that would be to easy
Anyone have drawings or pictures of the undercarriage set-up to fit a Johnson 10 loader on a Wheel Horse Raider? My loader was originally on a CC Original and I'd like to fit it to my Raider 14. Or, anyone just happen to have the bracket(s) around collecting dust just itchin' to get rid of it?

Sorry, I can't help you out, but I'd sure like to see it when you're done.
I'd like to see it now.

Just going to renew this thread as I am finding a little time now to play with the loader. I believe I can figure out a suitable undercarriage for the loader but am a little dumbfounded on how to mount the front loader bracket while still having a place to have the hood hinge. Any pics of a front end of a WH with a loader installed that I could get some ideas from?

Post some photos of the front of the tractor and the loader. Then we can probably come up with a solution.

2x2x1/8" square tube rails from the rear axle to just behind the front axle. Clamp to the rear axle and bolt to the frame at the front.
2x2x1/8 square tube, or 2x4x1/8" rectangular tube cross bar at the desired location for the posts.
The diagonal brace to the front is sorta important if you want it to survive.
There's not a whole lot of info on tractordata.com for your tractor. How heavy is it?

Both of those photos are of the "D" series tractors which are much larger than a Raider. The frame on the Raider is just 2 angle irons running down the center under the engine with a matching angle iron running across the front. Really not a lot of support for a loader and inclined to twisting which is bad on a loader tractor. A sub frame would be necessary in order to withstand much in the way of loader work.

What kind of stress does placing tube rails connected to the rear end put on the transaxle? Is there any worry of busting a casting?

I wouldn't worry about breaking the transaxle unless your going to be really ramming things.

Here's a couple pics of the new front bracket that replaces the quick-tach that was present. I plan to reinforce it along the side rails with some angle iron bolter to the frame. My next challenge will be figuring out how to mount the undercarriage underneath the tractor and how high it should be. I was figuring that I would mount it an appropriate height to match the tubing going back to clamp to the transaxle. It should be easy to fab some tabs for the hood to pin on to the new bracket - should look close to a factory job (I hope).
