    Exclamation Loaders by Westendorf

    For the 5 series JD. Loader comes with 3rd HYD option for a grapple. Total turn key ready for hookup.

    This is the CS-151 that is in the 420max family I believe. I have a quote for the CS-151.
    I won't publish the price but I will say it seems to be a legit deal.

    Doe anybody have an experience with them? Bad-Good?

    I've only "seen" them at the big (actually HUGE) NFMS in Kentucky, the seem solidly built. There have been many discussions about them over on the TBN board over the years, and I've never seen a bad word written about them.

    I looked into one for my 1026. The loader seemed to be a nicer loader than the JD one. They are priced about the same until the shipping was considered. I had no local dealer, I would have been buying directly from Westendorf. Shipping to my home was nearly a thousand dollars. With several JD dealers nearby with the loader in stock and no shipping charge , the Deere loader was a much better buy.

    I might have saved a few dollars going with WESD, my shipping cost quote from IA to MS was $355. I felt like if there was a problem with it any dollars I saved would be long forgotten with hassle
    .
    I found the JD 520M can be configured for the 3rd HYD function so I went with my local JD.
    Out the door $6500.OUCH!!

    But it's 3-4 weeks out and coming from..... wait for it...….. mxheco.. yup..

    I just joined the Forums to see if anyone had any experience with Westendorf and came across this one. I bought a TA52 for my 2305 this summer. The loader is rugged, but the Hydraulics stink. I've been chasing leaks out since September with little to no support from the factory. I would have bought a JD loader if they still made one for the 2305, but no dice on the 200cx or the H120/130. For $4700 shipped, it is rather disappointing to have these hassles (25% more than the 120R with JIC fittings). The fittings are all flare-less compression fittings along with NPT hose fittings. Not really rated for the 2000 psi pump pressure that the machine puts out. I changed over to Parker fittings which are better, but just pushed the problem down to the fittings on the boom cross bar.

    Anyone else out there with a TA-52 on a Deere? Just curious if there has been good luck with these. I'm not out to slam Westendorf, I'm just a little aggravated after spending so much money, spending more on fittings and its still leaking.
