Re: CIH Magnum 215
Very, very nice Michael. We considered this exact combination this past winter, as well as the blue version (TG215). Only difference is that ours was to be specced out with 710/70R42s. :-)


Do you happen to have any pictures of the joystick controls in the cab? It's not very common to see these with loaders, so I hadn't yet seen pictures of it.

Thanks, keep them up!

Nice machine :-)

Do you run duals on it?

I completely agree Renze, I noticed the same thing. I got a Euro-style latching system for the Deere 746 loader, but then had to keep the JD bucket/grapple anyways since the biggest ALO/Quicke makes is an 8.3 foot, while the JD goes up to 9.0 feet. I think the reason this is because Quicke loaders are prone to twisting, it's the reason they stopped offering the front blades for them, where-as I'd be interested in seeing the JD746 loader twist. Maybe I'll have to get a 10-foot bucket made! :-D

Re: CIH Magnum 215
Another question; why such a high HP tractor on a loader?

Re: CIH Magnum 215
In the midwest many farmers only have high hp tractors, and also they want to carry two large 6X6 round bales which is a lot of weight when you team it up with a 102" Grapple. The reason they don't put on larger buckets is because an many tractors it can exceed the front en capacity. Also Josh, front blades are never really recomend on a Mid mount loader, be it a JD or a Quicke. You get the right "cowboy" on any loader no matter what make and they can twist it. I've seen it....

Re: CIH Magnum 215
Josh, i do have a picture of the electronic joystick somewhere, when i find it i'll post it for you. Electronic / CDC is definitely the way to go with theses tractors

Re: CIH Magnum 215
Michael, (about the big grapple) I understand that, and have experienced it first hand, which is the whole reason for going to the larger tractor, and for getting a two-bale fork. It removes 730 kg (1,609lbs) of weight off the front end, that's like carrying an extra 6 foot round bale of hay around all the time!

My only reason for needing the bigger bucket, is for when scraping snow or manure, for it to be wider than the tires themselves. When you're scraping a long a fence or bunk feeder, packing silage in a concrete bunk storage, this way you can actually get up to the wall without rubbing your tires/rims. The 10-foot bucket would be the only way to manage packing silage with duals on.

This picture illustrates that:

The 108 inch (9 foot) bucket on the Deere just barely lines up even with the 710s on the rear. The 102 inch bucket ALO bucket wouldn't even be as wide as the fronts. Meaning that when you're plowing through 2 feet of snow, your tires are running in 3 foot windrows.

I also realize about the blades not being recommended on mid mount loaders, nor am I suggesting that a Quicke is more "quick" to twist than any other brand. However, when I spoke with an ALO North America rep in Southern Ontario regarding some blades Quicke use to offer, he said that they discontinued them because the operators were overworking them and twisting their loaders, and he then proceeded to direct me to HLA or Degelman front end loader blades. I was looking for one for scraping down driveways and feed alleys.

Thanks in advance for the joystick picture, I agree the CDC is definitely the way to go, I just know some people mount them by the dash, some off the seat, some off the armrest, some use the rear remotes, etc.
