Group, you all have been amazing and so informative.

I am looking for someone who makes/sells/fabricates the brackets needed to mount a 45 loader on a new X739? I am in Denver as a reference for shipping.

Thank you for any input,

Scott (Otis74)

Send you a message with where I had them made on my X738.
This thread could use your input! ;)

The men on here give great advice.

If I didn't "need" the backhoe/1025 I would have most certainly entertained putting a loader and 3 point on my x738.

Why, when a 1 series is only slightly more expensive?

Because the x738's AWD is far superior to the one series MFWD for grass duties on my property (YMMV).

I'm not putting down the one series tractors, they are awesome machines. Just saying that my yard's topography is just perfect for the smaller x series tractor with the hydrostatic AWD. It climbs like a goat and seldom scuffs or digs in and I have some thin turf in shaded hilly areas to cut.

CCcoltsicehockey and CJadamec (and others of course) surely show off the capabilities of the current x series tractors with loaders and grapples.

BTW there is a Backhoe that fits the X700 series weather Ultimate or Signature series it made By Wallenstein But it cost's More than a 260B Backhoe it this Backhoe Wallenstein Equipment with a 4 Point sub frame and PTO Pump same One they have for 1 series and 2 series Deere's (y)

I think that would be my break point personally between the X7 and 1 series. If I needed a backhoe I would just go 1 series. That being available if you can find one or not. At that point I build a bigger shed and get a zero turn to mow and a 1 series for everything else.

Holy trench digger, Batman! Thanks for posting this. An intriguing and cool solution, but once you add the subframe, rear PTO (if don't have one) and the PTO pump you are up over $12,000 MSRP - yikes! Of course, if you are weighing the costs of new tractor versus getting more out of what you got, maybe the numbers are okay.

I love Wallenstein attachments but they're at the point of diminishing returns for me.

Not that they aren't worth it... being handmade in Canada.

Yeah Not cheap But If Your Have a Rear PTO It's a Bit less expensive Back In 2003 / 2004 the Backhoe was about $6,200 so It really gone Up In Price since then. Whats Funny They advertise that it is still mowing deck Compatible who really run a 1 series will all 3 attached Loader, Mowing deck and Backhoe I did that with the 1 series when I Picked it Up But I dropped the deck Before I did any backhoe work or when I transported it to My other Property I Put On all 3 as I was Going to be mowing out there & doing some Backhoe work But I dropped the deck Before the Backhoe work began For storage it is nice It you don't have a Big cover storage area But Basically it could be a Mini 1 series. I considered the Backhoe at My other House I lived at But Moved Before I went & got a Wallenstein Backhoe and Just decided to Buy a 1 series Which ended Up Being a Mistake should Have waited & Bought 2025R 1st Just bought 2025R a year later to remedy that mistake (y)

I thought I would come back with an update as I was able to mount the 45 loader to my x739 tonight!

I ultimately combined the efforts of JBible and CTC to create brackets for the x739 to mount a 45 loader.
First I contacted CTC and they were able to sell me their left side bracket (without the extension post) that would work with my steering linkage. My plan was to then weld the 2” square extension to the CTC bracket.

I then took JBibles drawing and had a local welding shop fabricate the bracket for the right side that mounts near the hydraulics. I actually had 2 made so that I could use the second as a template for the proper orientation/angle to mount my square extension off the CTC bracket.

I cut the original 2” square bar from the 45 loader to the lengths needed for each of my mounts. I know that many of you would discourage that so that I would have the original mounting hardware if I were to resell the loader. My thought is that as years go on the majority of those looking for this loader will have the newer tractor and won’t be able to use the original hardware anyway. And by doing what I did, I now actually have all things needed to mount this to a 4WS or regular steer. I have the second bracket, and enough 2” bar to make a standard left side mount for a non 4WS if needed.

Below are some photos I took showing the CTC bracket, JBibles bracket design, and then each with the 2” bar welded to the brackets and then mounted to the tractor. I also added the THRV as mentioned by many others. I am waiting for my pressure gauge to arrive so that I can shim if needed to increase capacity if I choose. I also have 8 suitcase weights to hang off the heavy hitch click and go bracket.

I’m sure I am forgetting something so please ask if interested.

Thanks to everyone for all their help and guidance! Can’t wait to work on some small projects this weekend.

Can I ask you how that 45 loader works running off the oem hydraulics?

Ie: speed to raise/lower, lifting capabilities, etc.

So far so good for me and the small jobs I use it for. My neighbor has a 1025R that I used prior and I will say the bucket on it moves faster than the one on my X739. Also having the 2 handles instead of the joy stick does slow down operation a bit and makes it more difficult for small smooth adjustments. I have completed numerous projects that included moving and spreading 12 tons of crushed asphalt with ease and have overall been very happy with the 45loader attached to the X739. The primary use of my machine is weekly mowing in the summer and plowing snow in the winter.

Made me think of this thread to convert to a joystick. Having used my 54" blade to clear some snow for the first time last night got me thinking about this. Only problem is that I would need to find a shop to fabricate the two brackets Andreas created and find all of the parts. Looks like it wouldn't be too bad to connect though this was a x595.
