Carlos, I don't know which is the best. But I just bought a JD 410 loader for my JD 4100. The 410 manual lists the JD 870 Tractor as one of the compatable models. I also think that the JD 70 loader fits on the 870 (not sure though).

 what type of front end loader for jd 870

I was going to make a response yesterday, but we had a power failure just before I sent it, but today’s version may be an improvement. I suppose the easiest thing is to ask a dealer to match a loader from the tractor manufacturer to your tractor. That can be an expensive approach. Various after-market manufacturers make loaders and supply frames that can fit many tractors. Myself, I have an Allied 195 loader on my Ford 1710. Allied is a moderate quality and performance unit with a moderate price. Going with an after-market unit gives you a wider range of quality, performance, and of course price than may be available from the tractor manufacturer. On the other hand a loader from the manufacturer probably is designed closer to the requirements of your specific tractor. In selecting a loader, there usually is a trade-off between power and speed. It's tempting to get the biggest loader going thinking that sometime you may want to lift something really heavy, and a smaller loader may not do it. However, power always comes at a cost, and the cost is slower operation or reach. To get a loader that could handle a job that comes up once a year or never, you might end up with a loader that always works slower than you'd like. More power also means more weight to carry around all the time. More weight means more wear and tear on the front end. My Allied loader is moderate size for the tractor, but it gets most jobs done fine. Of course, the smaller bucket also means more trips to the gravel pile sometimes. Even so, the dump speed with my 8 gpm pump can be aggravatingly slow at comfortable engine RPM's for loader work with my gear tractor. I've heard that JD has some loader models with a fast/slow dump speed control. That sounds like a useful feature.

Also, look at the quick disconnect features of the JD 410 loader. Have it demonstrated for you, and compare this feature with other loaders as well as how often you might want to take the loader off and put it on. If you will hardly ever remove it, then the quick feature is next to worthless. I have heard that most people do not their loaders, but maybe that has to do with the battle it takes to get some of them off and on. I have a JD 430, and the 1 - 3 minutes it takes to drop it or attach it is often pure pleasure and often fits my hurried schedule. At least I don't think twice about doing it.

I agree with Kay. Look at the ease at which the bucket can be removed and attached. I have a JD 70A which is easy to remove. Unfortunately I don't like the bucket construction as much as the Bushhog I had on another tractor. Although I had the stand I never removed it as it required some bolts to be removed the JD does not need a stand and can be removed from the seat.
