    Loading a 120R loader into a truck box

    My 2025R tractor is at the dealership and the loader is at my house, and I need to get the loader to them. The loader doesn’t have a bucket on it.
    The ideal thing would be to put it into the back of my truck (6’6” box). If I can’t accomplish that, I can use my car hauler but I’d prefer not to.
    I have my 3320 with 42” forks or a 49” or 72” bucket that I can use to hoist the loader.

    Does anyone have thoughts how to lift the loader with forks or another method for loading into a truck or flat deck?

    Thanks in advance for ideas of how to do this.

    I promise to post photos once accomplished

    Yes, exactly what I was thinking.
    I’m not sure how to rig one that won’t bend anything, and also keep it somewhat level front to back and side to side.

    Use a 2x4's as a spreader bar.

    Cut one the inside length of the loader frame.

    Cut the other one the outside length.

    Put a couple screws in them and set it on top of the frame where the strap is going around.

    It's going to be an awkward load so I doubt you can get forks on under it and be able to slide it into the truck bed without any drama. I would use the forks to mount some chains/rope to form your harness. I would probably hook it up on the loader arms and then cross bar down where the bucket attaches to the loader and then see if you can lift it high enough to get in the bed of your truck.

    It may make things easier at the dealer if you use your trailer and set the loader so that they can use your tractor to hook up to it and move it while mounted on the tractor. Maybe they can come get it with their trailer or will they charge?

    For back to back level you'll have to find the sweet spot.

    I would just lift it and then back the truck under it rather than try and move it swinging.

    Or just use the sling to get it on to a pallet and then use your pallet forks to load the whole thing into the truck.

    Excellent thoughts everyone, and appreciated.

    I’ll place the forks over the loader and build a sling.

    I think to one of the points, by starting over top, I won’t be able to lift it into the box, so will put it on the trailer and use the tractor there to unload it.

    Would they come and pick it up, I doubt it, but maybe.
    I’m being somewhat lazy by not going there to get the tractor, coming back, connecting and going back. That will take +2 hours...hope I can put together a sling and not wreck anything in 2 hours 😉

    Look at it this way. If you do wreck something, you're going to the dealer anyway.
