 B6000E front end loader

I want to add a front end loader to my 2wd B6000E and am curious about the Woods 1006. Does anyone have this combination or any recommendations ?
Thanks !
-mike

Woods 1006 loader with 54 inch bucket works great on my b-2150HST. Get some wheel weights on the rear tires or run a 3 point blade or box weights. It will get tippy if you don't have some rear ballast of some sort attached.

I would think twice before puting a loader on a 2wd tractor that size.

Jeff makes a very important point about ballast. We sell small Yanmars and we will not put a loader on a 2wd Yanmar under 20HP. Even with ballast, the results are dissapointing. Two big concerns, the first being safety, the second concerning the usefullness of the tractor when mounted with this implement. Fill the bucket up and try to drive across a soft sandy area, or for that matter, pull your front tires up to a 2x4 and see how much your rear tires spin trying to push the heavily laden front tires through the sand or over the board. Then there is the issue of the strength of the front axle. A 4wd model helps overcome the traction problem, even if there are still some stability issues. In either event, if you need a loader, I would go a little bigger with the tractor, and get a 4wd model. If you do go ahead with the loader, be very careful when operating.

 B6000E front end loader

Since I first posted this I did go ahead with the loader. Got one from Homestead Tractor and am pretty happy with it. So far traction hasn't been a big problem but that is also because
I've got ag tires and a woods mower hanging off the 3p.h. Yes, that is a bit of a headache in some of the tighter spots I've had to work and I don't really like having that thing swinging off the back sometimes but it makes the balance overall pretty good when using the bucket. I have to lock the differential in the gravel while working the driveway but otherwise not too bad. I'm looking to get a rake and I'm guessing I'll need some additional counter-balance once I do get the rake. I've been reading some of the threads about liquid filled tires versus wheel weights and still have not made up my mind. As hilly as my place is safety is a big concern for me.

I'm curious as to which loader you got - I'm looking for a loader for my b 6200, I think it'd be the same one you got---

Thanks!

Susie

 B6000E front end loader

I went with the model "S" loader. Overall I'm real happy with it so far. On the plus side, pallet was small and it fit right in the back of my little Mazda B4000 pickup from the shipping dock. Instructions were easy to follow and I had it installed and ready to go to work in one evening with basic tools. On the minus side, the bucket flanges were spaced way too wide and I had to bend them to fit with a C-clamp to get the pins in place. I've used it for light landscaping and gravel work on my driveway and so far, so good. One thing I found is that steering can be hard work with a full bucket but I just take it real slow and careful ( as usual ) Smile
Good luck,
Mike

Oh, one other thing about what Jeff and Dave posted earlier. They are right on time with that advice concerning ballast. I only move the tractor without rear weight of some kind when changing impelments on the 3ph. It is remarkably unsteady without a lot of weight back there and even on the flat ground I can feel the rear tires lose traction. Dangerous... Counter-balance is real important with a tractor my size with the loader!

I have a 78 B6000E and would like a loader - please let me know where I can find out about this Homestead company. I am also curious, if you dont mind, on how much you spent for the loader, what is involved installing etc. The only reason I flirt with trading up is the lack of a loader...

Steve, I recently found a loader mfg. that now sells an economy loader, small , made for tractors your size. I think they sell for about $1500.00. The website is Leonsmfg.com click on the 'whats new' button.

Homestead Tractor has a website ( although it seems to be having technical difficulties at the moment ) at:
http://www.hstractor.com
Installation was simple. Bottom line, what is involved is bolting HST loader supports to the factory tapped holes in the frame and rearend in addition to splicing in hyd feeds for the loader. Feeds are spliced in by cutting the in and out lines to the pump and using the pressure fittings included in the install kit. Only change I made to the tractor itself was to space the wheels out as far as they would go to make up for the higher center of gravity.
