Yanmar147D
Hi everybody. I recently acquired a Yanmar 147D (around 1989) and am looking for a front end loader for this machine. The original number for the front end loader was YFL-575. Everyone in the Yanmar world so far has said it’ll be impossible, and so far they’re right. Koyker and Bulldog do not make loaders for this tractor. Does anyone know of and old tractor with a front end loader or a loader that will fit the 147, 147D or 140 that needs a home? Thanks in advance.

Here it is. So the 575 is true

Looks really nice for it's size. Only a couple times have I seen one used that would fit the YM2000. Had it since 08 and ended up buying the Ford just mainly for the Loader. 2500.00$ plus 1200.00$ in repairs to fix everything. Going that direction was well worth it. Tractor plus all repairs needed was cheaper than a New FEL. or at the price of used!! Which is hard to find. New Cost plus Shipping then install = Not worth it! I used a rear scoop until I found the Ford 2000

Pond scoop has been the inexpensive substitute for a FEL for a long time.

Back then, they did, today no.

Koyker use to make the 50 and 80. I had to poke around really hard on the web to find their old manuals for our YM and F/FX machines just in case someone wanted to add an existing older loader to a Yanmar, but didn't have the manuals for it.

So, if you find a loader at one of the tractor autions online or near you, look for the models that would fit. A good chance the 50 does.
