John Deere 45 Loader Attachment: Perfect for All Your Landscaping Needs

March 25, 2013

It’s just about time to fire up your John Deere lawn tractor to tackle spring landscaping  jobs, but, in order to make your life easier, you might need the John Deere 45 Loader attachment. For every task that involves carrying, hauling, or moving material, the John Deere 45 Loader can help get the job done right.

If you find winter snow lingering on your lawn this spring, then the snow removal capabilities of the 48” standard bucket on the John Deere 45 front end loader can tackle the job. Or, if the snow has melted and the debris from strong winter winds has accumulated on your yard, the 45 Loader can easily haul away and pile up all unwanted material.

The engineers at Deere have designed the 45 Loader to be compatible with a number of new and used utility tractors, including:

  • All X700 Ultimate™ Tractors
  • X475
  • X485
  • X495
  • X575
  • X585
  • X595 Two- Wheel Steel Tractors

The Quik-tatch feature of the 45 Loader makes it a snap to install and remove. Once the initial installation takes place, no tools are required because the mounting brackets are equipped to remain on the tractor at all times.

After you’ve successfully attached the John Deere 45 Loader to your tractor, its boom and bucket movement are controlled by the hydraulic control levers located next to the steering wheel. This makes steering the tractor while operating the loader easy and keeps all landscaping tasks convenient, manageable, and user friendly.

Whatever carrying, hauling, moving, spreading, or piling tasks you have ahead of you this spring and summer, the John Deere 45 Loader is ready to reduce operator fatigue while improving the efficiency of your lawn care tasks.

    joel interested in buying your loader

  • Joel Gunter

    I live in Illinois about 40 miles south of Effingham. I have been looking and the lowest price online I’ve seen is $2300. I will take $1800 for it. Hoses and cylinders are in good shape I used it to haul horse manure from my barn, got rid of the horses so I don’t need it anymore. It has very light surface rust on the bucket where the paint rubbed off from use. Let me know what you think.

  • Carl Bibb

    Joel; would consider $1600 I am west of Omaha, so a bit of a trip to get, your thoughts

  • Joel Gunter

    Omaha, Il or Omaha, Ne? I would sell it for $1600. That was my bottom dollar.

  • Carl Bibb

    Omaha, NE consier it sold, what is easy way to contact you to arrange payment and pickup?

  • Joel Gunter

    That’s a long drive for this thing. How do you intend to pay?

    I am very cautious when doing deals like this. I know a couple of people that have been burned so I hope you’ll understand why I’m not ready to just throw all of my info out there. Nothing personal I’m just cautious.
