I bought a Ford 6000 and would like to add a loader. What kind of Ford loader will fit this tractor? Also, I would like to add another hydraulic outlet on the back. What is the easiest way to do that?

Those old 6000s are pretty obsolete...Most of them are in private collections or have been junked.Parts are hard to find,and some are downright unavailable.That said,an F-11 Farmhand,Du-al 320 or similar would be your best option.But about any of the other 'mid-mount' loaders would work,provideing you have the right mounts,which will be hard to find.Or you can take what is there and make it 'fit' with some welding and torch work.As to the other valve,best to use a PTO pump and spool valves attatched to the loader.I dont believe that tractor has enough hydralics to handle a loader.

The 6000 is sort of the red-headed stepchild of the Ford lineup. It doesn't line up with any other models as far as size or shape...or for parts interchange. There was probably a loader that fit it, but I don't know what the model number would be. MAYBE a 727 would fit with the right brackets. Also keep in mind that Ford didn't actually make their loaders. I think Schwartz or maybe Paulson did? Don't ignore other brands.
The easiest way to add a hydraulic outlet would be to get one of the aftermarket "multipliers" that plug into the outlet you have. I think the 6000 used its own remote valve, not common to other models, (but I'm not positive about that) so finding a double might be hard...have to get a used one.
Another way would be to feed a generic double valve, mounted on the fender, from the one you have now.

It will have enough pressure (if everything is working right!), but volume will be low, resulting in slow cycle times.

Back when they were new Dad had a DuAl 250 on his. But it was usually off and mounted on a M. The 6000 spent way more time in the shop than most tractors.

I was playing around with two remotes by mounting them next to each other and feeding one of the other.They are mounting holes to the left of where the factory one was mounted.I ended up selling the tractor as it was a little large for my 2 acres.There is one listed for sale on Craigslist,eastern CT.It came off the tractor I had or was the spare.

My 960 came with a loader that is now on an Oliver 1850, so you can take whatever you can find that you like and just fab up the brackets.
