    FEL bucket interchange

    Hopefully its an easy question to answer.
    Are the loader arms the same on all JD tractors so that a bucket from a 460 loader would fit on a 120R loader. Just by looking at them they appear the same.
    I ask because if I change tractors I'm wondering if I can keep my grapple and just install it on a smaller loader.

    This maybe common knowledge but both my local JD dealer and I are ignorant of the answer.

    Thanks in advance to all who share their wisdom here!!

    I believe the quick attach loader bucket pins are the same for 1, 2, 3 and 4-series tractors.

    jgayman is correct. All of the JDQA loader attachments intended for the Deere CUTs (1-series through 4-series) are interchangeable between CUTs.

    I'm sure you're thinking of this, but just be aware that the size/weight of an implement for a 460 loader may well leave very little extra lift capacity on a 120R. Or maybe you have a light grapple and all will be well.

    The grapple weights about 370lbs.
    Is that a "light" grapple, I don't know, I wouldn't want to drop it on my toes.

    I think I'll be OK, I'm going to pull all the extras that are added to run it on my 4610 and keep it for a 1025.

    Thanks tho for the heads up!!

    Deere's specs for a 120R call for 754lbs lift capacity. And that is probably at the end of the lift arms. Your 370# grapple will leave you with only a few hundred pounds of lift capacity. Will it work? Sure. Will it disappoint you in what it can do? Probably.

    There are other grapples out there that are much lighter. Only you can decide whether you'll be fine with your current setup or would be better off swapping.

    I was contemplating this.

    Does Deeres spec of 754 lbs include the bucket? I would imagine so, then you have to find out the weight of the bucket vs the weight of the grapple and then adjust for the difference.
    So I'd guess the grapple might even be lighter than the bucket.

    Anyone know for sure about the Spec/with or without bucket?

    I'm bouncing back and forth between the 1 series and 2 series. I think a little extra that the 2032R has would be nice, not much bigger.

    I have read on some of the posts that the older 2032R's, '16 and older had a different setup in the front for FEL's.

    Is this right?

    I do not want any tractor with the tier 4 stuff on it. I'm OK with used but I'd like to keep and use my existing grapple.

    How far back does the existing quick change system go on the older 1 and 2 series tractors?
    My '03 4610 has it I would think that all of JD's tractor would of had it since then.

    That is not correct. The current 220R will fit 2-series going back to at least 2008 (2520, 2720, 2032R, etc.)

    Anything from the Gen-1 2032R and older will not have T4 emissions

    It's not so much the tractor but the loader. I think it goes back to at least 2006 with the 200CX loader.

    WAY before that. The JDQA came out in the mid-90's sometime.
