Hi, we're looking at buying a MT2600 2wd tractor. 30 hp. We have just bought 20 acres. I'm wondering if anyone can give me any idea about putting a FEL on the tractor. I've heard that it's not best to use a FEL on a 2wd. Any imput would be greatly appreciated.

There is nothing wrong with putting a loader on a 2wd. A 4wd makes a nicer unit , because of the added traction of the 4wd, when the bucket is full or when digging. By weighting the the back of a 2wd properly, alot of work can be accomplished, especially in the larger sizes.

Sharon, I don't disagree with Leonard. He's right that you can do a lot of work with a front end loader on a 2WD if you hang enough weight on the back end, and that's not unusual in BIG tractors, but before I bought a new tractor in 1995, I looked at some used ones, and one of them was a 2WD, and even the seller told me that if I was going to put a front end loader on it, I would be sorry if I didn't buy a 4WD. In other words, you can certainly do it, but I do believe you will be a little disappointed with a front end loader on a 30hp 2WD, unless you intend to only do very light work with it.

I have to agree with Bird on this one. I know my 4wd sure makes the loader work much less difficult. You certainly will probably be disappointed with that 30horse 2 wheel drive, if you plan on any heavy work.

Thanks for all your help, it's certainly nice to get an idea before we buy. Do you think the larger the horsepower the better the outcome with a FEL or is it the 4wd that makes it more able to withstand heavy work??

It's definitely the 4wd that makes the FIL more effective. Match the HP to your needs, but I've moved mountians of stuff with my FIL with a 19HP diesel,4wd and it's never hesitated!

Sharon, it's not just the horsepower, it's also the size and weight of the tractor, size of tires, etc. (traction, in other words). I have one neighbor who has 3 tractors in the 100 to 150 horsepower range. They're all 2WD and have front end loaders, and while he occasionally uses a bucket, his primary business is hay and the tractors are big and heavy enough to handle 1500 pound bales of hay with a hay spear on the front end loader, and they're heavy and powerful enough to push into a dirt pile pretty well, but with the smaller, lighter tractors, the 4WD can push into a pile of dirt so much better to get a full bucket. I have a B2710 (27hp) 4WD, and I recently picked up a full 55 gallon barrel of diesel from the bed of my pickup with forks on my front end loader, backed away, lowered the bucket and turned, then just spun my rear tires in the grass because I was in 2WD, and I have liquid ballast in the tires and had a 5' box blade on the 3-point, and couldn't go. I shifted into 4WD and went about my business with no problem. That's the sort of thing that will happen frequently with a 2WD tractor and you're stuck when you just can't get enough traction just with the rear tires.
