 John Deere 4100 410 loader

Being new to loaders ( Real dumb) . I plan to purchase the John Deere 4100. How does the 410 loader perform? I have 21 acres of woods and plan to use it for dirt moving, lifting, etc. Also what types of jobs can a loader perform?

Jobowen, I've a 4100 with a 410. It has moved tons of dirt and gravel --reducing days of back breaking wheel barrow work into a few hours. I've also used the 410 as a carry-all, moving bags of concrete, boards, stakes and other items. Using a chain it has pulled old fence posts, tree stakes, lifted and moved other implements from here to there. It has also lifted and held a metal barn door up while I fastened the door in place. This spring I'll be pulling old T-stakes, and that alone will save me days of work and months of back pain. My back thinks the 410 is the best implement there is. You can also get other implements to attach to it, such as pallet forks, but I've opted not to go there. I think you'd love one. Best of luck.

I love it! I unfortunately cannot compare its "real world" performance with Kubota, NH, ect.. I can compare its controls and ease of use, and can tell you it was one of the deciding factors in our decision for JD. The only problem I've encountered, assuming it is a problem... is the bucket will drop a few inches over time, and the bucket itself will start to tilt forward slightly. Maybe this is normal..But I cannot remember this problem on any other loader I've used...All of which have been significantly larger,, Not that size should matter.

I know this is going off on a tangent, but MLS I would check with the dealer that sold you the 4100 and ask if the loader drop you discribe is normal. I would not think it is. I have a Yanmar 30hp with a Koyker loader I installed and I can leave it up without any drop. Once about 3 weeks ago, I left it up for 6 days without any drop. This was an experiment and not something I do often. I worry about the neighborhood kids getting squashed by a loader bucket should they mistake my tractor for monkey bars.

I have a 4100 with 410 loader also. I have used it for removing an old sidewalk, filling in the place where the old sidewalk used to be, hauling bucket loads of compost to the gardens, reshaping a gravel slope into an outbuilding, leveling the gravel portion of the driveway, and lifting the large cement cover on the septic tank when it needed cleaning. My back loves the 410 too. The ease of installing and uninstalling the 410 is incredible. My first project was removing the old sidewalk. That was a scarey adventure until I installed some ballast on the tractor. This is my first front end loader experience also. My unsolicited recommendations are to move slow, be extremely cautious, and wear your seat belt. I now find myself thinking of other projects that I can use the 410 for. That small pond that my wife has been wanting may become reality next spring.

You would be amazed at what you can use a loader for once you have one! Getting the garbage to the curb becomes a more enjoyable task. I grew up with a full size backhoe/loader in the backyard, so when I bought my 4100 last year, there was no question in getting the loader. It is a great loader, but you have to remember it is small. It will move lots of dirt a little at a time. Don't get me wrong, the loader has no problems handling a full bucket, the bucket is just small, after all it is a COMPACT tractor. I love having it and would not give it up for anything! BUY IT!!! You will come up with so many uses for it.

Took your advise and called my dealer. What we are experiencing is fluid finding its way past the valve seals. He said JD and most others use..(I forget the name)so I'll just call em special plastic/nylon valve seals. Probably for production reasons. (Plastic provides a higher compensation for machining imperfections) My last post indicated that I didn't remember this problem on large farm tractors...Appearantly size does matter. Large tractors use metal (Brass Assumed) seals for the valves, which are better but have a much higher price tag to them. The additional cost is easier to absorb on a +75k unit, but most more appearant on a $10k unit. Can't speak for others, but JD allows a certain % of drop with a given time. Not sure what it is, but I have to test my unit to find out if it passes. MLS

I also have the 4100 with 410 loader and love it! I haven't noticed any drop with an empty bucket, but with a full load of dirt it will drop a couple of inches within five minutes (rotates, actually). I assumed this is normal, given the load being placed upon it (as I drive down the dirt driveway with the load), but now I wonder if I should have this checked. I haven't noticed any obvious leaks in the hydraulics, but I'm new to this stuff too. Simply can't say enough good things about the 4100 and loader combo...Now I'm wondering what would be the next most useful implement to buy??? Any suggestions?

MLS, did you "buy" that seal explanation? I agree that the drooping is internal and is fluid either making it past the internal lift cylinder seals or back through excessive clearance in the loader valve body. It would not show as an external leak. Seals are dirt cheap and will handle more manufacturing slop than is normal when making the cylinders. Loader valves are tight tolerance devices and normally rely on high quality ground fits. It just doesn't ring right with the high quality that JD is famous for having. There just isn't much money to be saved here, since although valves are high-tolerance items, the methods of making them are so well worked out that they are not expensive.
A drooping loader won't hurt anything. You shouldn't leave it in the up position anyway. But I'd ask for another opinion.
