“I love the Freedom Mount loader; it’s a great piece of equipment, and it fits my John Deere 8120 great. I left the loader on for a year before I decided to try to take it off. I was amazed at how quick and easy it came off, and it was just as easy to put back on. It is far and away the easiest loader to mount and dismount that I’ve ever owned.   I was worried about reconnecting the hydraulic couplers under pressure, but the Hydra-Snap units are a great feature--the handles offered enough leverage to easily hook-up the hoses while under pressure."

“Years ago my brother owned a WL-40, and we’d use that in our farming operation daily. When I bought my own farmstead, I needed to get myself a loader tractor. I had an IH 1086 and put a brand new WL-42 on that tractor in 1980. I’ve been using that loader every day since. I decided it was time to upgrade, and I wanted a Westendorf so I took a look at the FM-560 loader and was sold. All I needed to do was find a tractor to match it. I really like the looks of the loader; it’s a modern loader for a modern tractor. The day the tractor and loader were delivered, my son, Philip, liked it too; he took his girlfriend out for a cruise around the section.

Over the years I had to replace a cylinder in my WL-42, the new Freedom Mount loader’s hydraulic fittings are a real good improvement over the threaded fittings – it saved a lot of time wrenching on hoses. I like the new swivel fittings it eliminates twisted hoses."

You guys make a great loader, next thing now is a bale spear.

- Dean Avery - Meservey, IA

I was a big hay farmer at one time. I owned both a IH 686 with a 2250 IH loader and another with a John Deere 146 loader. We needed another loader tractor for sharecropping so in looking around,  I bought a new TA-26 Westendorf and put it on an IH 826. In the long run the Westendorf loader is the best, hands down.  I decided to retire and had to sell out.  I sold six tractors and many pieces of equipment.  My old 826 and Westendorf loader is NOT for sale.  I have had it about 10 years and not spent anything on the loader and there are no welds on it.  I am very well satisfied.

I have a TA-29 self leveling loader, third valve on a 1995 CIH 5240 with a toothed grab fork, round bale spear, and forklift attachment. The TA-29 didn't look like much compared to the heavy high towered loaders CIH offers. I was skeptical at first, but it has been a great loader that is lightweight, yet very strong and slightly flexible. Visibility is very good and it is easy to grease. It has a lot of force, no sense in carrying around more loader than you need too.

 "I ordered the Freedom Mount loader with the New Cat Claw grapple. I use it mostly hauling hay and stock bales – haven’t moved a lot of brush yet, but it worked well on a couple cedar trees I removed from the fence line.   The Cat Claw is excellent, and I can even dismount my loader without having to remove the grapple. It works great for large round bales; I even pick up two stock bales at one time and take them to the cattle yard saving myself multiple trips."

I currently own a WL-42 front-end loader, which is on a 185 Allis Chalmers tractor. I would like to state that this is the finest loader I have ever seen. This thing is incredibly easy to install/remove I cannot imagine owning any other loader.
- Allen Gross
For 22 years my WL-42 loader was my most dependable machine on the farm. It had everything--easy on and off, bucket leveler, grapple hooks, strength of construction and perfect engineering. It was never babied, and it never broke. When I retired and sold the farm machinery, the tractor with the Westendorf loader brought a good price.

I like the Power-Mount and quick attach features of my Westendorf Loader. I change attachments three times a day on my TA-26.  I have a pallet fork, bucket and hay spear that keep my 800 head of cattle fed.

At the 2005 NFMS in Louisville I bought Snap-Attach™ for my Allis-Chalmers 460 loader, bucket, spear, and manure forks.
At the 2006 NFMS in Louisville I bought the FL-48.
I recently set up my loader to the Snap-Attach™ system and it works great! I go from moving round bales to moving pallets to scooping manure in seconds!

I've hauled everything in this loader (WL-42) but the Queen of England!

23 Years

I've had my WL-42 loader for 23 years and haven't had to ever put a weld on it!
