New low-profile loader for row-crop tractors

New low-profile loader for row-crop tractors

Hydraulic cylinders in new loader are positioned inside the loader arm for better visibility.


The new Westendorf Freedom Mount (FM) series loaders, designed to fit tractors ranging from 130 to 260 hp, feature a new streamline design that provides for unmatched visibility, the manufacturer claims. Hydraulic hoses have been hidden inside the loader arms to create a lower profile along the tractor’s hood and protect against wear. This patented cylinder positioning allows the loader to fit large tires and keep the loader close to the tractor and low along the tractor’s hood. The new FM series also fits Massey Ferguson 8600 series tractors. Suggested retail price: between $10,600 and $16,500, depending on size. Contact Westendorf Mfg. Co., Inc., Dept. FIN, Box 29, Hwy. 175 West, Onawa, IA 51040, 877/423-0070, or visit
