Hi!
I am looking for a skip loader type 4x4 tractor in Eastern Washington. This loader only 545d came up. It does have a PTO but I'm worried that adding the 3-point may not be an easy job. It is located a half day's drive from me so I havn't had a chance to look at it in person. Seller is helpful but I'm not sure how to tell what all needs added for the 3 point. I think it looks like its missing the internal parts for the lift arm and I'm guessing its overly expensive to add to this machine. That should be between the seat and the rear axle right? Thanks for any information or wisdom! Here are photos of the machine:

Expensive is an understatement. That said, it can be done but.........

Wow, someone (most likely a rental company) must have decided it was easier to remove than to fix it. You could find the top cover on any 445/545, 445A/545A, 445C/545C or 445D/545D or a slew of 3 cylinder ag tractors after 1975 that would work.
The links and arms are more specific to the D Series.

Did you buy it? I mulled around thinking about buying that one for a while, but it is gone and I am not the one who bought it. I have a 445D and I really like it. Only reason I was interested in that one was that it's a 545 I guess. I had not noticed the lack of 3pt parts. I am probably better off having not taken on another project.
