The 44 loader that was originally fitted to the open frame garden tractors like the 318, 322, 332 and similar models had a separate pump and reservoir...so it was not considered appropriate to operate a loader class accessory from the on-board hydraulics of these vintage tractors originally. My 322 had a 30 hydraulic tiller, again with a separate pump and reservoir for similar reasons.

I did have a small Johnny Bucket SR front bucket that DID use the on-board hydraulics and it did an acceptable job for what it was, and other front buckets like the OR-BILT and Buford units are similarly configured. I suspect that the on-board hydraulics of the 322 would result in much slower operation of the 40 loader and give limited lift power, but it would probably cycle. Maybe some member here has more direct experience to off on the topic.
