“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."

I like everything about my TA-28 loader - It's the best.  I clear a lot of manure, as I have a lot of cattle.  I use it to haul wood and handle brush.  It's got good lift height (over 13') and works great for stacking bales.  I couldn't get along without it!  I really like the quick-tach bucket teeth.  They work really good for scooping manure, an you were the only company I found that had a quick-tack style so the teeth don't need to be bolted on.  When I want them off they're off and when I want them on, they're on in just a few minutes.  That's quite a patent and loader you have.

I have never had a loader that I have used so much and that has served my every need, like my Westendorf TA-25; and, as a rancher out here I have many.

You make a far superior product, and I boast to all my ranch friends that they should be so lucky. I hope I can help spread the word and get your Westendorf products on more farms and ranches out here.

Thank you so very much.

My 2008 Westendorf TA-26 has exceeded all my expectations. When I moved the loader from a 1965 Ford tractor to a 1990 Ford cab tractor it bolted right up with no problem using the same mounts.

Westendorf's customer support is awesome, I talked to a real person and not to an automated system. Westendorf gets an A+ for the advice they offered for their product.

I really wish to compliment you people on the fine loaders you build. I have a Westendorf loader as do many of my neighbors, and they all like them very much. Built in the good ole USA!

The main reason I went with the Westendorf TA-25 loader was the bucket.  Kubota's bucket is too shallow and it is not as heavy built as this one.  The main frame and mounting of this loader is super heavy duty adn will last 10 lifetimes.  This baby was built to work!  The installation went very well.  The instructions were good.  I was able to install 95% on my own.  I would and will recommend anyone adding a loader to use WESTENDORF!  WHAT A GREAT LOADER!  I have the skid steer coupler with this and it works great.  Thanks!

Thank you for making amazing loaders, I've been a proud owner for many years and never had any issues.

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.

My family & I were talking with a gentleman from Westendorf last Friday at your display at the Iowa State Fair, and we were telling him about the old 1940's Westendorf running gear that I had just restored. This running gear was a hay wagon when my Grandfather had it. I am getting ready to replace the wood and fix it back to a hay wagon for parades (and just for fun).
I was around 10 years old when my Grandfather would have me drive the tractor and pull this wagon. I lost my Grandfather back in the 90's. We found this running gear in the field where we previously stored the hay. The running gear was good as new when we found it. I am 41 years old, and I am very lucky to have my parents, as my Dad has been a big part of the restoration of this wagon.
Here are a couple of pictures I thought I would send you.

I have a Westendorf quick-attach loader on my 684 International Tractor now, and it has been great! It is probably the most used implement I have. All the Westendorf products I have seen have been top quality, and I would not hesitate to purchase a Westendorf product.

It Was Fun

I tried to buy a used WL-42 years ago at a farm sale.  I was always outbid over the price of a new WL-21.  My banker understood, and in no time I got my new 21 loader.  My local dealer said I could pick it up at the factory, and you know, it was fun!  Those guys bent over backwards to get my new loader to me.  That was 15 years ago.  It's about time somebody said something about being built in the GOOD OLD USA again.  Tell them boys doin' the weldin' to keep up the good work... they got it better than NASA when it comes to steel!
