This has come up many times - not impossible to find but damn near impossible
Some have suggested either FIND another machine with it on - and buy that, selling the first one.
Others have said to fab one up ........ unless you have metal/welding skills, that will be almost as hard.

Now I will have to say - finding it can be a waiting game - on the other hand I found after looking for 2 years the Tractor side MMM PTO that goes on a B7100 - I had one side and not the other, new was about $400.... I found one in my town about two weeks ago, I could NOT believe it!

B219 will also fit. I found a B219 for my B7100 but it came off of a B7100 stick shift, mine is HST model. The framework is different under the tractor, HST is 6in longer than the stick shift. I am good at fabricating steel so I cut the frame and made fit the HST model. They are out there you just have to find it!

Looking for a FEL for my B7100 Not sure what fits but think is a LA211?

I just finished up adding a LA211 to my B6100. It was not made for this tractor but is a great loader with modern controls. It was a tight fit but is a good size for the tractor. I had to make all the quick connect brackets/frame support and deverter block.I have all the templates for the frame plates and mounting plates if you end up buying it reach out and I will hook you up.

Thanks for all the detail but probably beyond my welding skills.

I applaud your adapting it, but a real strong word of warning!
You're very likely going to break the tractor in half without a subframe with rear axle bars!
Seen it multiple times!

The Woods equipment company sold DU-AL loaders. Not sure if they still do.

I have a Du-Al Loader on my L2900. It's a 90's vintage. They've stopped making them for a while now. But I believe you can still buy parts for them.

After many hours on the internet and if not wanting to wait looks like 3rd party co's can provide a loader for me. Woods, Koyker and Westondorf all cost about $5000. Any recommendations on vendor preferance?

Not to beat the dead horse - have you found any B7100's with loaders for sale? I bet those are in that same price range! All those brands have the subframe and valve body in a kit format?

I have been looking and you are right, there are some out there around $5000 for tractor with FEL but are not close so is just weighing the cost against the time and effort.

i absolutely love my koyker 110 on my b7100. they don't make the 110 anymore but i believe the 120 is the same loader. lifting power is amazing, you'll want some rear weights. the joy stick is in the perfect spot, atleast for me

Thank you for the heads up! I read that a couple of times and am working on a 3"x3"x1/4" tube that runs from the two 1" holes in the 3/8 plate that mounts to the clutch housing, under the transmission and bolts to the bottom of the rear end. Then up the back around the PTO. I will send some pictures. You can tell me what you think.

What/where exactly breaks? Transmission? clutch housing? Rearend?

Clutch housing is Number 1, it's the weak point.
