I have been looking for a loader for my '73 Montgomery Ward for sometime now.  I really wanted to find an exact Montgomery Ward Loader (they were just rebranded from another manufacturer though).  I have come across a Johnson Model 14 loader locally to me.  I am pretty sure this loader is bigger than what the original loaders were but it is interesting to me.  The asking price is $1200, overall the loader is in good shape from the pictures (I am going to look at it tomorrow)  Is this price in the stratosphere? I will have to make a sub frame for it.

It may be in the ballpark if it really is in good condition. Check our Manuals Section for that make and model to learn about it. I recall that an Allis Chalmers B 10 came with a Johnson Model 10. I'll do some checking and edit this post in a little while. Good Luck, Rick


The AC L-1, L-10, and L-12 loaders all seem to be the same size just different mounting. I believe they were made for AC by Johnson.

If it's in good shape that's top of the price range,but for a model 14 that's not bad. I paid $1000 for a model 12 about 4 years ago. I had to make mounts to fit it to the tractor I bought it for too.

In my opinion, a tractor should be attached to that good working loader for $1200!
