Loaders Launched for Wide Hood Magnums

Wider hoods on tractors require new loader designs. Westendorf meets the need.

Published on: Apr 29, 2013

Westendorf has launched the FM-585 loader line for Case IH Magnum 235, 260, 290, 315 and 340 models that have a wider hood. These are higher-horsepower tractors and the new loader line is designed to match that horsepower. The Freedom Mount design along with the wider stance, makes this a logical add-on to the new-model tractor. The FM 585 loader is a full-featured implement that allows for remote coupling of different attachments, the flat-face Hydra-Snap hydraulic connection ad more. You can check out a complete line of details here.

The loader features 16-ft. lift height, mounting brackets, grill guard, a 108-inch Freedom Mount bucket with 1.75 cubic yard heaped capacity and a range of optional attachments. For more information call (888) 237-9168 or visit www.westendorfmfg.com.
