Loader for JXU

Member
I'm considering selling our 40-something year old 2wd loader tractor and instead getting a loader for our Case JX100U.

Don't know much about loaders at all, wondering what the best options are - Quicke/Trima/Case/any other (maybe cheaper) makes worth considering? It won't be doing a massive amount of work - shovelling grain in the summer, loading fert/seed, stacking straw bales and odd jobs on 200 acres arable.

What sort of price is a new say Quicke for that size tractor? And what should I look out for if buying second-hand? Any other advice welcome, cheers.

Edit - also meant to ask (thinking about getting the right brackets etc) whether there is a difference between the JX(number)U tractors (like mine) and the more common JXU(number) ??

I done this out before on a different forum to show what Case models matched the equivalent New Hollands. The brackets from a TL won't fit on a TLA or T5000



I hope this helps you get a better understanding
They started out as the Fiat 80-90, 90-90 series

They were updated to the 94 series 88-94

The next update was as Fiat and New Holland
The Fiat models were the L60, L65, L75, L85, L95
The New Holland models were 4635, 4835, 5635, 6635, 7635

The next update they became
New Holland TL70, TL80, TL90, TL100
Near the end of production the Case versions were introduced, JX80U, JX90U, JX100U

The next update 2004-2008
New Holland TL70A, TL80A, TL90A, TL100A
Case JX1070U, JX1080U, JX1090U, JX1100U

The next update 2008-2018
New Holland T5040, T5050, T5060
I don't know what the Case equivalent is

There is other versions of the Case with the letter U in the numbering and that confuses things further, these were the cheaper Turkish built ones, it is easy to tell the difference if you see a picture of the gear sticks in them, all the Case and New Hollands models above have the same style gear stick and is identical to that found in the Fiat 100-90, 110-90

The next update was the
New Holland T5.95, T5.105, T5.115, the models above were all very similar with no major changes, the T5 series was a big change, the cab became tall and smaller. I don't know what the Case equivalent is now that is built on the same production line as the New Holland version or if they are completely different and all built in the Steyr factory

Don’t make the mistake of going too big with the loader,a jxu is fairly light back end anyway.Quicke q30/35 or Mx u6/8 or t8 would be ideal around £7k new I would think.if going used Gribben tractors probably have something.Definitely needs to be jxu or new Holland t5000 brackets jx is totally different.
The OP's tractor is a JX100U which is the same as a TL100, the brackets from the newer TLA, T5000 or the equivalent Case model won't fit a TL or the op's Case, there was some change made to the engine or somewhere on the tractor when the newer models came in

Thanks for the explanation of the different CNH models @mar that's useful to know.
@balerman I'll give Gribben Tractors a try, thanks also

Are there many pros and cons of different makes or do they tend to be all much of a muchness?

Another question about this - am I right in thinking of spending a few grand on a new or used loader for what is a 17 year old tractor, or might it be more cost effective to sell the Case and buy a similar tractor complete with loader?

I was thinking the former as for one thing the tractor is "the devil I know", runs well etc & I know she's been maintained, but was talking to a neighbour today who reckoned that buying loaders can be a minefield and its better/possibly cheaper to buy a complete unit.

Any thoughts?

If you were to buy say a ten year old tractor that has had a loader from new,it will have wear in the front axle and the forward clutch pack could also be worn depending how sympathetically it’s been driven.Put a new loader on what you have,will be a better outfit in the long run.
 
I don't do too much now and only needed a JX90 which is the old basic model with conventional clutch. I kept the 25 year old Quickie loader from my old 895 Stockman and the dealers put some new brackets on the tractor for me. After about 5000 hours on the new tractor, the old loader was sh**gged so I looked on ebay and found some similar second hand arms with no brackets for a very reasonable price which has done another 5 years now. It all worked out much cheaper than buying a new loader
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
