I have a 420.

I know the 40 loader, is the Correct loader for the tractor. Which is just shy of impossible to find... and when found sells (in my area) for $3500.

I have an email out to someone, they listed a 45 Loader ($300) which is apparently for the X series tractors.
How far off is the 45? If I got the bracketry for the 40 loader would it drop on those brackets and work? I'm not afraid of building brackets either, so that would be OK as well.

I know the hydraulics are stronger on the newer tractors, but would the 420 actually be sufficient to operate it with the factory Hydraulics?

How difficult are they to take on and off. I realize they aren't as easy as the 120 loader on the 1025R's, but if it's just a 30 min situation, I can deal with that.

I feel like for the money, it's really hard to pass up.

I believe you’re actually looking for a 44 loader.
The 40 fits the 400 if I remember correctly.

Ahh yes! That could very well be correct!
Man I wish I had MmrBeef's memory on this stuff. I swear whatever goes into his head doesn't get lost. LOL
I know I've read about all 3 of them, but I can't seem to keep them all apart.

Which... is the reason for this post!

Really, if I can find any of the 3 for cheap (like this one) and it will work, I'll be happy. I don't plan to do a ton of heavy lifting, literally 300 hundred would probably be the most.

Well poo...
The gentleman just sent me a picture of it... it's a 45W or 48 off what would be a JD 60 Series.

I didn't realize that JD would be that cruel as to call 2 loaders the same name! LOL

Well, if you can find a 45 Loader for $300 I will certainly buy it from you for significantly more than that for my X595, or I would happily pay you for the referral..........

Don’t worry Deere has had a 310 backhoe for 50 or 60 years now.
And 2 different 420’s and 430s. And has recycled 8R series model numbers at least once. Among other things…

Since the subject is here....
What loaders 100% fit on a 420? What loaders have been re-engineered and work well?

Deere 44
I believe the PF Engineering Front End Load would technically count as they’re DIY builds.
Think Westerndorf and Quicke has something sized right for it.
Deeres H120 and 120R would probably fit with custom mounts.

Wowza... I'll just get a 3 point bucket... or build one of those rotating buckets we were discussing in that other thread.

You can convert a blade to a bucket if you dont need the height of a loader.
I dont have a blade, and there isn't any cheap ones near me. Lol the 420s must not be popular around here, there isn't much around for them here.

Still love my tractor, but its tough to find toys for! Lol
