I'm just thinking here, but has anyone ever seen a RF 110 with a front end loader? I am wanting a garden tractor with a FEL and may end up making my own. I have a '66 110 and was just thinking, hmmmm.

 

My main question is would the transaxle hold up with a weight box mounted on the rear of the tractor? I have wheel weights but think I'd need a weight box too. If it's been done before and you have pictures, I'd like to see them.

 

Give me your thoughts.

Ricky,

 

I don't have any front end loaders, but I know Kenny (Littledeere) has a 1967 110 with I believe a Johnson loader on it. I'm sure he'll be along shortly to show you a picture of it.

Ricky

I have a 73 110 with a Wright-Way FEL on it.  I have over 100 lbs on the hitch and concrete wheel weights 50 lbs on each side and I have no problems with the transaxle.

on the 73 my front axles are 1" not the 3/4", plus my front tire are 4 ply.  you might have to beef up the front end of your tractor, because of the weight that you are lifting

 

I make front fork for my FEL to turn my compost pile and it still can lift the rear end off the ground, so there can be a lot of weight that goes to the front axle

My FIL's brother has a '64 or '65 that has had a loader on it since it was new. MY FIL hasn't talked him out of it yet, but it's not for a lack of trying.

Lets see I think I have some pics

 

 

I would say you should not have issues with the rear but the but the front stuff is a little lite

even though many used them for years kind of hard on your arms and the tractors spindles

 

I would say you should have at least 300 to 400 lbs added to the rear

You need to put one on a "real" GT. A Cub Cadet. :poke: :rolling: Just kidding.

I think the OP is looking for something that is capable of doing work, not a lawn ornament.
