    Installation instructions for 200CX loader?

    Does anyone have a link or source to the installation instructions for the 200CX loader on a 2x20? I want to add the 200CX to my 2720 and I'm curious how difficult it would be to install myself. I would like to review the installation manual for any requirements or steps that may cause me difficulty.

    Thanks!

    Here's the 200cx manual on JD's website. Hopefully it answers all your questions.

    The installation portion is pretty straight forward with a reference for dealers to go online for more/up to date installation instructions.

    Thanks! That is helpful. I was hoping it would include the entire installation process, including installing the support struts on the tractor but apparently that is limited to the dealer-only documentation.

    I am trying to get an idea if the loader is something the dealer can deliver by itself ready to be installed or if I have to have the tractor hauled to the dealer for installation. Which I would prefer not to do for a variety of reasons.

    I think this is very much a DIY job if you have the tools like large sockets and a torque wrench. The dealer can print you the install instructions if you ask.

    I agree with Kenny. From what I can see on my 2520 and my bro's 2720, it looks like it is a straight forward bolt-on procedure. The hardest part might be the weight of some of the brackets, but they don't look like they weigh hundreds of pounds.

    That's sort of what I was thinking. I've got plenty of large tools (sockets to 30mm, 3/4" drives, torque wrenches, air impact, etc). So as long as it doesn't require an overhead lift or anything I think I'm okay.

    I just wasn't sure what standard practice is. In other words, can I have the dealer "prep" the loader and deliver it ready to be installed as opposed to just delivering a crate.

    My problem is I don't really trust the local dealer to use tools on my tractor and if I had them pick it up who knows when I would ever get it back.

    Granted, if I needed some serious warranty work I would be forced to let them have their way with it but there were just too many things wrong / poorly done when I had the 2720 delivered that I would like to avoid return trips unless absolutely necessary.

    If I install it myself I would know it was done 100% correct and to the letter.

    If you need photos of anything, I should be able to get pics of my bro's 2720. You sound handy. I'm not a JD-trained service tech, but I'm not afraid to pull stuff apart or install things. I would say I would feel comfortable having a big box marked LOADER dropped off at my house and installing it myself. I don't think you'd have any problems.

    They come bolted to a pallet IIRC, I have seen them at the dealer that way. I don't think you'll need a lift (expect for getting it off of your truck or trailer possibly). Once you get the brackets mounted, you will use the hydraulics to attach it to the tractor.

    I would not hesitate to do that project on your own. I know what you are saying about how some dealers treat (or mis-treat) our tractors. My 2520 looks really easy to install.
