I recently purchased a couple of JD 350s. One is the "runner" the other was sold as a parts tractor. Both have blades.

I would like to convert one of them to a Drott 4 in 1 loader. Does anyone know:
1) Can it be done by just bolt-on parts or were there other differences?
2) Are the Drott loaders the same (interchangeable) for similar models e.g., JD 1010, JD 2010, JD 350, JD 350B, etc?
3)Where are the important measurements made to find if a particular bucket is compatible and what are the dimensions for a JD 350?

Sorry, I know that is a lot to ask. I appreciate your time.

Doing that goes way beyond what I'd a "change." Frames are different and so is the hydraulic system. Makes a lot more sense
(to me) to find a loader and fix it up.

been around crawlers and crawler loaders for 30+ years, as JDEM says easier to find a loader than trying to convert 1 of yours. I bought a big old skid loader, for what I now do, I like it better than the crawler loaders.

JDM is telling you right.. I am 74 years old and seen that tried. UNLESS you can find a junk JD 350 and get it all and then it still is not worth the effort. The track frames just lots of thing different you never thought about. Find you an old loader and buy it and forget you project.

I think you will have to check on how much clearance you have between the tracks and the frame. some of those older dozer were bolted on the outside of the tracks. Loaders normaly fasten inside of the tracks. Doubt if t will work.

Have a complete loader on a JD 350 not a 4 in 1 if it would help you
