Subject: JD 148 loader


This is a older loader but appears to be in good shape. However don't know how good the cylinder packing and lines are without hooking it up. Hydraulic lines are on valve body with joystick control. Buy as is in auction.

Was this a good stout loader that would hold up on a 100hp tractor?

What is a loader like this worth ???

2500-3500. Decent enough loader for its day. Don't abuse it.

Pretty good loaders for the older Deere tractors. Brackets will fit pretty much all the row crop tractors from a 3010 up, but the boom width is really to0 narrow for the wider hoods that were on the 4440-50 etc. I've replaced more rod packings on the bucket cylinders than I care to. Seems guys like to roll the bucket all the way down and then push with the edge. Can be a little hard to keep the bolts tight to the frame, and when they get loose, the brackets crack where the square tube welds to the main part. Overall, a good loader; not a bulldozer.

According to the 148/158 manuals that I have (but don't need) the 148 was designed for use with 2520, 3020, 4000, 4020, 4030, 4230, 4320, and 4430. The 158 with longer reach was designed for 4000, 4020, 4230, 4320, 4430, 4520, 4620, and 4630. I have noted on through 4255/4455.

Great loader. The joystick control can be used in a soundgaurd cab. Don't worry about the cylinders, question the hoses and valve body.

Depending on the mounts for the tractor frame-----$4500.00 top

Way better than aftermarket.

So the valve body can be a problem?

If so can it be fixed at reasonable parts and labor cost?

Any idea what a joystick and valvebody kit cost ?

158 is better for brush work or loading wagons because of the extra reach. We had a terrible time repacking the cylinders, would hire it done next time.

Very stout loader though for a 4020. We've given it hell for decades and it's still straight.

I use a JD 4020 with a 158 loader years ago to load 5x6 bales 2 wide with single row on top.
I could load from one side of my trailer because of the long reach.
I like that tractor and loader, like the way it handle.

158 will break spindles on a 4020

I've had a 158 on a 4020 for 25 years without problems. Loaders don't break spindles. Operators do.

Thinking just now I think it was a JD 725 loader, I believe.
It belong to our local John Deere dealer owner, his own tractor.
Neighbor brought about 200 rolls of hay from him and I was hauling it for them.

It will all depend on the serial number, but I ASSUME a complete valve replacement will be about $1500-2000.00.

Cylinder kits are about $90 each.

That joystick operates the valve with cables, make sure those cables are workable.

Loader looks great to me----I have one that is over 40 years old and has never been abused, that's a lie. You will be happy with it.

Joystick is what got my interest but if it's not good and serviceable this loader not to attractive then. It's not a quick attach which is a con but it's not bulky which is a pro.

Just the loader alone without joystick and valvebody. What would it be valued at?

Yeah a 4020 is a great loader tractor. Be nice to have that longer reach of the 158 loader. You know the difference of reach between the 148 and 158 loader.?

I've got a 148 on a 4020. Dad bought the loader new in 1975. I just resealed the cylinders last winter. Pretty straight forward job. I can't speak to the joystick but cables would be the most likely part to replace. They can be pricey.

148 on a 4440 for 25 years with joystick. To be fair we are careful and do not use that often. But has not failed on every task we put it to. Second bucket was aftermarket and I think it is heavier duty than OEM.

We had one on a 2wd JD 2950. Used it pretty hard. It did twist a bit but might have been due to the user.

We had a 148 on a 2840. It was used and abused hard. It was faded, twisted, cracked, welded, and had main pin holes egged out, and I still got $2,500 for it and the mounts when I sold it about 10 years ago.

Looks like the cylinder visible in the photo probably has at least a small leak judging by the oil stain at the bottom of the mast. Shouldn't be too hard to get fixed but unless you like doing that sort of thing and know what you are doing, I'd bring it to a hydraulic repair shop.

Shorter loader than a 158 won't reaches far out for loading but on the other hand much more compact for getting around in tight areas and actually will lift as much or more since the shorter distance gives you better leverage. It will still break spindles on 3020 s and 4020 s. It will also break the knees and the cast housings. Been there done that. Handled too 3 by 4 by 8 Bales at a time with one for years. God only knows how many tons of manure in silage from dirt and sand.

Subject: RE: JD 158 loader spindles



The typical factory small front tires break spindles with or without the loader. The loader manual specifies that the front wheels and tires should be larger like 11.00-16. That bigger tire spreads out the load on rough terrain like plowed ground and doesn't get caught in furrows like the original small front tires.

They are good loaders, only problem I ever had was the original bucket like on that one bends up easy and it doesn't backfill well after that. Problem could be solved easily if you wanted to. It was on a 3020.
