I was wondering if anyone has a loader on either the duratrac or Troy Bilt GTX. (I have the GTX18)  Specifically the part number 14066? I was wondering if someone has photos of how the subframe gets mounted and any dimensions on the subframe including the rod that goes through the middle. Does anyone know what is the displacement and the orientation of the pump that mounts to the front PTO? Or even just a simpler question which way does the front PTO spin? Thank you.

I have a Johnson loader on a GT2000 which is basically the same as yours.

I should also have a parts manual for this, but in the meanwhile here's a copy of the owners manual. Not the greatest copy, but hopefully it will help.

Thank you for the manual. I don't actually own the loader, but I am in the process of making my own. I got some ideas how I want to mount the loader to the frame but was hoping to understand how the OEM subframe mounts with close ups.

Cvans, do you got any pictures of how the johnson loader is mounted underneath and to the frame?

 I wish I could draw something on CAD for you but I'm too old for that. Pretty simple really. If the storm isn't too bad tomorrow I'll try and get you some photos.

   I made my own mounts. I wish I could draw something on CAD for you but I'm too old for that. Pretty simple really. Two 2 x 2 x 1/4" square tubes going across under the tractor. Each tube has two heavy tabs welded on it that just fits up inside the frame rails with a hole in each tab. These tabs are then bolted to the frame rails. These tubes extend out the sides far enough for the loader to bolt to and are strong enough to limit frame flexing when carrying loads. I've been using this combination since 2009 without any problems. 

  Your tractor with the power steering and foot controlled hydro will make a you an nice loader combination.

That would be great. I don't necessarily need cad plans, just would be good to see where things mount. Any idea what pump is used? Is that attached to the front PTO?

No it's underneath attached where the mower deck shaft would hook up. Think I have photos on another computer. I'll get those to you also.

 

I think the pump was 1.65 gpm. Purchased from Surplus Center.

Alright. Thank you very much. Much easier not reinventing the wheel.

I replaced the original front tires with larger ones to improve flotation when the bucket is loaded.

Thank you for the photos. They are very helpful. Did you have anything go back to the axle or are they bolted in the four spots along the frame? I assume you drilled new holes in the frame to bolt on to? Is that a spline coupler to the lovejoy connector? It is where the mower deck would attach for the pump correct? What size tires did you go up to? Are you still using the 23.5x10.5-12 in the rear?

Front tires went to 18" diameter from 16". 

Nothing going back to the rear axles. So far it hasn't been any problem. I don't ram things though.

Too many years ago to remember if I needed to drill holes in the frame. 

Yes it is a splined to Lovejoy adapter. I'm fortunate to have a lathe and other equipment to do these things.

The pump is hooked to the mid PTO shaft that would power the deck. 

Still using the stock rear tires with good results.

I'm retired and this was my second diesel conversion project. Then added the loader. Before my back surgery this tractor did most of my lifting and has had a lot of use. Anything over 50 lbs is stilled moved around with the Bolens. I have larger equipment but this has grown to feel like an extension of myself and gets used far more than anything else. Just plain handy.

That's part of the reason I want to get a losder built. Lots of lugging heavy stuff that could be a lot easier using a loader. You don't have any clearance issues with the tires by going to the larger size right? Did you go with 4 or 6 ply? I was thinking about buying trailer tires and putting them on the front. What do you use for ballasting?

I had ballast in the tires but they started leaking so now just wheel weights. Eat more now before using it and it seems to work out about the same.  :D

I had a little clearance issue with the front loader mount but it didn't take much to take care of that. I think they are 4 ply. There wasn't any clearance problems with the tractor itself.
