I'm starting to think about getting a loader.
I know a Johnson 10 is smaller that a 14.
But, how can you tell the difference? Given that most will probably not have any identification on them.
Can you just take a quick measurement? Are the frames different?
Looking at pictures on the Internet doesn't give a good feel for size. And sellers might not know.

I have a big Jacobsen 53500 (same as a Ford LGT 195) with power steering.
And a Bolens HT 20 and HT 23 without power steering, one of which I'd like to put a loader on.

Ark and Quick Way would also be options. Or, maybe just build one from scratch.
Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks!
Joe

I have a Johnson model 10 and it has what they call a knee that allows the bucket to dump a full cycle. As for the frame size I would imagine that the high the number the bigger the tractor but I don't know that for sure

Here are some pictures of a loader that I am considering buying.
In talking to the seller I believe he said he has the sub frame.
He said it came of a Bolens HT.

from what I' ve learned  , the difference btw the 10 and 12 is the size of the crossmember. I'm sure there is more than just that.  The pics are similar to what i have,I think  mine was a 12? here's a pic IMG_0398.JPG

this was before I widened it. notice the sides are off to clear the hoses. and the bucket width to the tires

Joe , that has what looks like a dual action valve on it too. mine has the original vale and can only do one function at a time . that valve adds some value ..

I spoke to the seller today.
He said he has the mounts to the frame.

I told him I'll come to get it next Saturday!

Only thing IF it came from a Bolens the mounts probably won't work for the Jacobsen could be wrong. As far as power steering I haven't had the need for it with my 110. If it can lift it it will probably turn.

Looks like I have everythingimage.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
It has a 48" bucket. I'll have to straighten that cutting edge.
And both mounting plates for the towers are bent and cracked.
Only thing I'm missing is some nuts and bolts and a drive belt.

I think it's a 10TC based on a 33" measurement between posts.
