Quite the machine!  That loader bucket looks HUGE.

It's decent sized.  The PO took a Johnson Workhorse 10T loader and widened it about 10".  Still has the original cylinders, though so it will only lift about 300 lbs.

 

I just picked up a JD 317 with a cobbled-together loader that has larger cylinders and larger arms, etc.  I'm thinking of swapping it and cleaning up some of the sloppy work on it.

Smitty, Nice 420! The big JD's sure are nice!

 

Regarding the lifting limit... Are you sure it's not the tractors hydraulic pressure limiting your power? The cylinders don't look that small, at least not on the "extend" end.

 

What kind of pressure and flow does teh 420 put out?

I know, I know... I keep starting a 12 Step RFTA (Recovery From Tractor Addition) Program, but I've found it's an endless loop!!!!

 

That being said, I'm at the point where I'm going to have to start parting out my CC102s & 125s, and the Case 195... haven't had even a nibble on them in over a month...

Patience, my friend, patience... although I'd love to do this all the time, I do have a day job that keeps me away from home about 13-14 hours a day.... I can browse GTT during breaks and lunch, but can't upload pictures from my phone or camera...
