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.

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.

I'm very happy with the Cool Cap and the simple and heavy duty hardware.  What a difference a little shade makes.

Adolf Siegl - Palmyra, NE

I love the loader and have not found another with the ease of use in connecting and dis-connecting nor the stability. You have a great product and I would like to be on a catalog mailing list.

I put a TA-29 loader on a 4030 John Deere with a cab, and it works great and the vision is good. I have a bucket and spear, and they change very easy and quickly. I would recommend this loader to anyone with a row crop tractor.

Bill Page - Palmyra, MO

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

I received the Westendorf Cool Cap Canopy for my John Deere 4310 today.  It took less than 1 hour to install.  All the parts and hardware were there.  First time in a while I have put something together that wasn't missing even a single washer.  The instructions were well written and easy to follow.  Must have been written by someone in this country. (American English).

When I went shopping for a loader, I did some research, and word of mouth told me that Westendorf was the way to go. Everybody that I talked to only had good things to say, especially if I ever needed replacement parts. So, after getting my WL-42, I can tell you that it is the best loader I have ever seen, and I've seen a few loaders in my time. I like the way it mounts and dismounts, the quick-attach system, and the overall fit and performance. My brother liked it so much after trying it out, he bought the exact same loader two weeks later. Now we can share attachments and get twice as much done.

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 have used the Brush Crusher to pile trees as high as the loader will go.  I no longer have to cut up trees to get them to the burn pile, I just pick up the whole tree and stack it for burning.  When I first got the attachment, I had trouble understanding how to work the Brush Crusher.  They sent out a man to set it up and show me how to work it.  Name any other company that will do that for one person who bought a small item as a Brush Crusher. The Brush Crusher has saved me dozens of chain saw chains and an aching back.

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 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.
