What is a loader and how does it support farming efforts?

A loader is a front-end attachment that can be added to a variety of farm and construction equipment. With the right loader attachments, you can take your equipment to the next level and use them to complete various tasks more efficiently. A loader and the right loader attachment can save you time on the farm by helping you move materials or clean up by doing the heavy lifting for you.

Which loader attachments are available now?

Regardless of your tasks at hand, John Deere offers a variety of loader attachments to help you get the job done. Current loader attachment offers include pallet, grapple, snow, and hay attachments. Find the right fit for you at your local Koenig Equipment.

 

What are the best attachments to simplify material handling at farms?

Compact track or compact wheel loaders are a great addition to your equipment fleet, but without the right attachments, you can only accomplish so much. Continue reading to see the top loader attachments are available to help you get the most out of your loader.

 

Pallet Attachments

Pallet forks are designed to move bulky, heavy materials when added to your front-end loader. These are ideal in moving contained materials such as lumber or seed and nutrient products. With a pallet fork attachment, you can transport a lot of materials at once.

 

Grapple Attachments

When it comes to handling brush or cleaning up from a storm, flood, or demolition site, grapple attachments are a must.

There are two different types of grapple attachments available depending on what your ultimate goal is with the attachment. Bucket grapples are like your basic loader bucket attachment, but they have a functioning, top rake-like component. Your other option is a root grapple. Root grapples have rake-like tops and bottoms allowing them to go into the ground more than the traditional loader bucket bottom of the bucket grapples. Both grapple attachments are designed to collect and move heavy debris.

 

Snow Attachments

If you live in an area that regularly gets snow during winter, and you already have a loader for your equipment, take the strain off your back from shoveling and add a snow attachment to your fleet.

When it comes to smaller snow jobs, the addition of a front blade is great and can help you easily move snow from the path. Snow pushers are an ideal attachment for your hard-to-reach areas due to their boxy shape. When it comes to the big snow removal jobs, there’s the option for a loader-mounted snowblower. These offer the quickest snow removal by moving the snow out and tossing it up to the side bank.

 

Hay Attachments

Moving hay is made easy with the addition of a bale spear. By adding a bale spear to your front-end loader, you can quickly and easily move your hay. There are two different bale spear attachments available. These are the single bale spear or the three-point bale spear. Both will be able to move and pick up your hay bales.

A single-point spear doesn’t disrupt the bale and its nutrients very much. A three-point spear could disrupt the hay's nutrients, but they offer better stability when moving, eliminating the risk of the bale spinning during transport.
