A: You can request that by phone at 1-877-423-0070 or by e-mail at sales@westendorfmfg.com.

Q: I have a non-Westendorf attachment; can I use it with my Westendorf loader?
A: Absolutely, you can convert your current non-Westendorf product to our quick attach system by purchasing the C-2 couplers (Weld on style) or C-3 couplers (Bolt on style). These couplers allow you to attach a receiver style coupler onto your existing product. C-2 and C-3 work on TA-26 and larger loaders. For the TA-25 you will need C-11, for the 100 series you will need C-14. If you have a skid steer style coupler, the C-19 is required.

Q: I have a non-Westendorf loader; can I use Westendorf attachments with my loader?
A: You sure can. Is your loader quick-attach or pin style? If it is pin style, we would suggest that you purchase a set of C-15 and a set of C-2 or C-3. Our universal quick-attach offers customers the ability to mount our quick-attach style onto other brand loaders; they are sold as sets (2). The bottom loader arm must be less than 4 1/2" wide, and the bucket cylinders must be on the top of the arms.

Q: Where can I find information on loader safety?
A: The operator's manual has a complete list of loader safety. You will also find safety stickers on your loader's tower that give you details as well.

Loader Selection

Q:

Why is selecting a custom loader better than the OEM loader?

A:

With the OEM loader you will only get what is standard in the package.  It's like getting cloth upholstery in a new car or truck.  If you're the type of person who wants leather seats... then you need to look at a custom loader for your tractor.  You will notice the difference every time you ride in your car... or, use your loader.  We match a loader to fit your tractor for a comfortable feel during operation.  If you need a loader with more lift height, you can have it.  If you need a loader for dirt work, or to handle large heavy bales, let us know... we can customize your bucket with dirt blades and scarifying teeth or beef up your bucket cylinders for additional breakout and roll back power.  We can do that in 3-5 days, for most applications.
