My Westendorf

Customer Testimonials

My loader is working great.  It is the only loader to buy.  My dealer recommended Westendorf on my first tractor and that's all I've bought ever since.  I've had other brands, but nothing compares to my Westendorf. I use it mainly for dirt, gravel and hay.  I recommend Westendorf to all of my neighbors.

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.

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

Attention all farmers and ranchers, if you want a fantastic loader that slides on and off quickly, Westendorf is the loader for you. I have used a WL-42 for years, parted with it, and got me a John Deere 740…biggest mistake I ever made! The 740 don't slide off like the Westendorf models, and I will be trading or selling my tractor with the 740 on it and getting a Westendorf to replace it. The 740 is a joke the way it comes on and off, and I can't wait to have a Westendorf on the farm again! Just another satisfied Westendorf loader customer. Keep up the great job. Yours truly, Phil.

I am 71 years old and over the years I have owned 24 Westendorf running gears and used them for gravity wagons and hay racks. They are built like the Rock of Gibraltar--real heavy duty construction. They are the only loaders I buy.

Easy On & Off I like the versatility my loader offers me by freeing up my tractor for other chores.  I can take it off practically anywhere.  Two minutes is actually stretching it for the time required to mount or dismount a Westendorf; plus you don't have to leave the tractor seat once the hoses are connected.

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.

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 wish to thank all who had a hand in installing the TA-160 loader on my tractor.  Everyone was helpful and could not have done more.  I have now used the loader and it works great!  I know it will save me much hard work.  Thank you all.

I purchased my Westendorf loader (a TA-26) years ago, it is now on my third tractor (3020 JD, 1025 Belarus and now a 5303 JD) it is working as good as new.

Custom Contour I recently purchased a New Holland TS115A tractor with a Custom Contour 340 Loader.  This loader is even better than my previous Westendorf loader I had.

John Neuman - Baraboo, WI

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!
