    Post 45" Front End Loader X728 series.

    I have an opportunity to purchase a used 45" Front End Loader for my X728 tractor. I have a bad back and hope it will help me do some heavy lifting. Gravel for my road. Cord wood on my deck. Transplanting stuff in the garden. Stop my beloved wife getting upset when I lift something.

    All comments welcome.

    Keith.

    The loader is the most useful thing about my tractor. Spring cleaning, planting, projects and so much more.

    Weld a hook on the bucket and it becomes invaluable in picking up and moving heavy items.

    I had a FEL on my X748 before I bought my 1025R. It worked pretty nice. Not near as good as the 1025R but was pretty good.
    If you are buying it used, be sure you get the tractor attaching components since they stay on the tractor.

    You're going to need a traction relief valve (TRV) for the loader if you don't already have one.

    Here are the Parts You Need
    BW15044 TRANSAXLE HYDROSTATIC RELIEF VALVE 4WD or AWD
    M146148 free-wheeling valve control lever is also required. 2WD or 4WD & AWD
    AM134625 Lock out Valve.
    If you can't find it or get it from your Deere dealer Keep In Mind the TRANSAXLE HYDROSTATIC RELIEF VALVE is Not actually Made by Deere it is actually Produced By the Transmission Manufacturer Tuff-Torq and is also available thru them for the K92 or the OX as Tuff-Torq Now Calls the K92

    Make sure to have the proper rear tractor weight ballast for operational and safety reasons. At a MINIMUM, the rear weight bracket and suitcase weights as well as rear wheel weights. It is crucial for your safety and that of the machine to always have the rear weight ballast.........

    Just understand that the loader for the X7xx series is not going to be picking up buckets full of gravel. There is no question that it is a very handy and appreciated implement, just don't expect the loader for your tractor to operate like a front end loader with heaping bucket fulls as that is not what it's designed to do..........

    It will pick Up Buckets full of Gravel, Sand & Heaping buckets of Dirt No Problems & that's without even shimming the Valve Been running a 45 loader for the Last 14 years on either a X485 or a X748. Now My 425 with a 40 Loader The 40 Loader Performance was Not near as Good as the 45 Loader even though the 45 is rated at 375Lbs Max height(picks Up a little more than 375Lbs at Max height as well) 40 I think was 350Lbs Max Height) the 45 Loader will Pick up more at 3ft 700Lbs without shimming the Loader
