A 48 Loader is too heavy for a 1020 tractor. Yes you can make it fit, but if your tractor has a set back axle you are asking for trouble. Look for a 37 or 143 loader that is made for that small utility tractor. 48 loaders were made for 3010 ,2510, 4010 tractor (row crop).

JD engineers didn't agree with your statement that 48 FEL is to large for a 1020. I think I remember mounting 48 on JD 1020 & 1520 tractors when they were new way back when I was employed by a JD dealer

I think OP is looking for 48 loader mounting brackets not side frames.

I did get that one, Jim.
The frame rails I mentioned should be installed prior to installing the loader mounting brackets, for added rigidity.

I do believe you're thinking of the 148 loader. :unsure:

I did not know about the frames for rigidness. I will see about getting those as well. I really appreciate everyone’s help so far.

SSGROCK17, you may want to hold up on the frame rails.
Is the 48 loaded you have a Quick-Tatch? If so, the mounting frames(brackets)(right, #21 and & left, #8) may incorporate rigidness itself, with the utilization of #2 and #7 in the image below.

It is not a Quick-Tach. It came with a set of C-Channel rails that have the L-shaped rest for the loader itself. That mount does not match up to the 1020 I have. I am looking for the #21 and # 8 by part number.

Those are different mounts than on my 1967 1020RU with a 47 loader. Mine is a 3cylinder Gas model with swept back front axel.
