Wow! a loader put together for $100! Sign me up! I have a 155d which has what appears to be a Johnson loader. It runs off the tractor's hydraulic system. I would say that its lifting speed is acceptable, at least for me. As for weight, I commonly almost fill the bucket with sand or gravel and it lifts it just fine. I then travel in 1st gear so as not to bend or break anything. The loader came on the tractor and is somewhat of a cobbled up job which I have to rework soon. Mine is attached to tie back of the tractor in addition to the middle which appears to be the way that Yanmar did it with the stock loader. I have a weight box on the back which helps with stability and to rock some weight off the front end. Starting from scratch, building mounts should be relatively easy. Check out how other owners have done it.

same machine as my 155D. I searched the web for
inexpensive loaders but none of them had models to fit my
155D. My local John Deere/Yanmar dealer looked in his
book and gave me a price on a unit which was out of my
league. However, in his back lot he had a set of old
Johnson loader arms with cylinders that he said was
originally sold on 155Ds and which he gave me for $100. Also
included was a front mounted pump and each of the three
155Ds that I have seen with loaders have also had an
auxiliary front mounted pump (there is a splined shaft off
the crankshaft pulley for mounting the pump, but I
haven't been able to find a coupling to fit the splines
yet). I assume that using the tractor's hydraulic pump
would give rather sluggish performance but would
probably work. <br><br>These loader arms are much smaller
than most other arms that I have seen, so I don't know
what their capacity is. <br><br>There have been a
couple of posts by folks who have built loaders from
plans sold by the CADplans web site www.cadplans.com -
however I would guess this would be significantly cheaper
only if you had the equipment and ability to do all
your own fabrication and welding.
