Default Re: Just Upgraded from 2620 to L5201..Slightly disappointed

The loader on an L2501 should be able to lift a bucket full of dirt. I copied and pasted this from another post.

"Well we went to the dealership and looked at a L2501 but the only one they had together didn't have a quick change loader on it, they have about 5 in crates. So they brought out a L3301 with forks. I wasn't expecting them to try move a full pallet load of net wrap, 83# per roll or 1328# of net wrap plus the weight of the medium duty forks. It picked it up no problem but would not steer sitting still, not surprising. That was so much weight we were almost afraid to even try and move it, it did steer with some difficulty when moving very slowly in Low range. When they went to park the net wrap back into place, it was a slight incline, they had to use 4wd to get it to move as the rear as basically unweighted. It only had methanol loaded R4's and no other ballast. I'm still shocked that it picked it up at all."

I move logs like this and some bigger to my mill all the time. Not sure what might be going on with your tractor, sorry to hear.
