Default Front End Loader for a L275??

I'm wondering what to look for when I want to look around places for a front end loader for my L275. Im looking for sizes and or other info that I can use to know what fits on my tractor etc. Thanks.

Most places you look at for aftermarket loaders go by horse power ratings. The L275 is a 27 horse power tractor and will handle a loader with a 5 foot bucket no problem. Look to spend somwhere in the area of 2500 to 3500 for a loader new. Used ones are hard to come by because everybody wants them and those that have loaders seldom take them off and sell.

I would look at the Woods Equipment web site. They make a great loader.

Rumor has it www.Coldwatertractors.com have reasonable prices on custom made FELS. Couple of fellas on here have checked into them, hopefully they will weigh in with pluses/minuses.

I've head good things about the loaders from other members on here. Everyone seems to be pleased with their purchase from Clearwater tractor. And just about every member has said how easy it was to install the loader themselves.

Maybe its just me but the loader lift arms seem rather small in size and look like they might snap in half easily. So far no reports of anything breaking on them.
