Ok, Kinda new here.  Question?

 

Did each garden tractor company make there own Front End Loaders?  Or, was there an aftermarket company that made them for most GT's?  

 

Like StanHoist for larger tractors.

 

Just wondering.  I have a FORD LGT-145 I may think about adding one on.   It looks like it has a heavy round bar to hook up to under the tube frame. 

 

Were some easy to detach if you did not need it on?

Thanks
Conrad

Johnson company was a big maker a lot of loaders for smaller garden tractors. I think John Deere made their own.

I'm not a Ford expert, no little about them so not sure if anyone ever actually made one to fit those tractors even though they maybe made by another manufacturer so there could be ones out there??? Now finding one is a a different story. I'm trying to make a deal on one for my Sears, but doubt it will happen. 

You're best bet will be to find any garden tractor loader then modified/build a frame to attach to your tractor. I would imagine they come off relatively easy if you use pins with clips on the pivot points and quick disconnects on the hydraulic lines.

I had a Ford LGT165 with a Brantly Loader and Backhoe, the old garden tractor finally gave out after I used it for a year (it was worn out when I got it).

I sold the loader because I bought a John Deere 140 with Kwik Way Garden Master Model G Loader. I kept the backhoe and I made it 3-pt for my Kubota L2000 tractor.

Here are some pictures

Wright-Way here in Iowa made FEL for garden tractors

They went out of business in the early 90's

I brought mine off a guy that bought them out - he sold them for year

I got one of the last ones he had and had to fab it too make it work on my JD 110 and 212

There is a FEL for sale on here. http://gardentractor...er-on-a-massey/

It probably can be adapted.

Johnny Bucket is still around. Not a full size loader but will do most tasks. The bucket only raises several inches off the ground. It is good at back dragging and grading.
