Ever since I got my Ford 3000 I've been on the lookout for a light loader for it. I've seen probably 5-6 that would fit the earlier hundred series tractors but very few for the later ones. I don't really want to mess with a bunch of fabrication so I am hoping to find one that will go right on. Ideally it would be set up for a front pump.

I found this one https://newhaven.craigslist.org/grd/d/ford-loader-frame/6373441870.html

But it doesn't look like any of the loaders I've seen on a thousand series Ford. For one, it has only a single bucket cylinder. Second, it doesn't have the big casting at the bottom of the upright posts like the 730.

The seller says it came off of a 2000 3-cylinder and ran off the tractor hydraulics. Not the end of the world if that's the case as long as it is designed for the 3000 and not the 4-cylinder ones.

Might be painfully slow off the tractor hydraulics, but if a front pump could work, loader frame being the oil reservoir, might not be all that bad to set it up that way. I cannot recall this arrangement on a 3 cylinder ford, front mount pumps are common on the older hundred series and should provide more GPM's. GP front end on one of these is not the best candidate for loader work, but for light use, you won't wear out the center pivot pin for a long time, all depends on how it's used. We had a loader on a 3600, it did not show a lot of wear for it's age.

Search the interweb for 730 loader manual. Go to the n tractor club link for a description of the 730 series loaders.

I have a loader manual for when I was looking for a loader for my 2000 a few years ago. I will dig it up and see what it says about fitment. As I recall, it was 7XX loader numbers.

Never did install one on the 2000, deciding to get second larger tractor with a loader already installed.

Thanks for the info guys, I think this is actually a "model 68 Standard" loader aka 19-117 and it is designed for the earlier 4-cylinder tractors. I don't know enough to know if it will fit my 3000.
