Drawing a balnk on model number right now,I think its a model 14,but not 100% sure,but the Johnson in my opinion is the best made,go anywhere from $800.00-$1500.00 usually,check it out good for weld repairs and if its twisted,please post pics of the HT-23

Aaron, when did you get an HT23? I thought you guys were stuck on Ridemasters and Ride-A-Matics!

As noted before, a Johnson Model 14. I have one of those for an HT23, and I like it. The only shortcoming IMO is that the Johnson loader did not include a self-leveling bucket, which some of their competitors did. I think Kwik-Way loaders did.

I like the J24 better myself.... nicer bucket and just a cleaner better loader but the buck doesn't cover the wheel makes but if I build a bigger

bucket the tractor will not handle it... I know its max cap is 500lbs? but I would not put it to the max

The 24 will lift a Ridemaster off the ground thats around 700 pounds but it was maxed out.

Not sure what model this is, Workhorse label on it. Took these pics last night when I went over to the old mans place. This is on a JD 300, he got the tractor with FEL, tiller, and deck for $50. It's got a blown motor, best way to find a FEL. I'd like to put it on a tube frame, not sure if I can? I missed the opportunity to get an 1886 minus a motor with an FEL and rear wheel weights for $400 a few months back...not sure what FEL it was...

All that for $50? Wow, what a deal!

I'm no help on whether you can put in on a tubeframe, though.
