Graden Tractor front end loader

Post  Coupe Devil on August 19th 2015, 9:24 pm

So I have a 67 Sears Suburban that was my grandfathers I am going to be restoring. BUT I'd like to add a small front end loader. I'm going to put a new engine on the tractor. Probably something in the 12-14 horse range. Not trying to farm with it, just move some stuff around the house and yard, and probably build some forks for it to pick up pallets, or anything else I want..


Anyone built one for a garden tractor. Been doing some research and a "kit" is outrageously priced so it looks like build from scratch will be the way to go.


Here's the tractor. It has a 3 point hitch on the back now also. I would LIKE to add hydraulic setup to as well.

I have looked at those plans and will probably order a set. It can be done WAY cheaper DIY than buying a kit ($2500 and up) using his plans.

And I think I've watched them all. I like the Johnny lift but it wont lift high enough. I want to be able to dump stuff but as I am thinking more and more about it a good way to lift other things is just as important so the Johnny lift wont do.

Also check out cadplans.com

I bought their back hoe plans a long time and modified the design to with normal tlb outriggers, but didn't have the money to actually build it. Maybe someday lol.
