Ingenuity meets versatility in durable American craftsmanship



Looking for a rough-and-tumble front end loader? 

Little Buck Loader is a durable and utilitarian front end loader that connects seamlessly with your John Deere garden tractor, allowing you to conquer projects like snow removal, brush clearing, and landscaping with fun and ease. Our loaders come fully assembled.

Like many great American ventures, our aftermarket bucket was born in a garage. The brainchild of a father and son who were trying to make their tractor more versatile, Little Buck Loader has been streamlining projects since 2015. Loaders start at $1,790.

We build for these JD models / View our list here.

Preferred shipping / $190 to ship to a commercial address to most places in the Continental U.S. We ship through Fastenal 3PL, which means your loader will arrive at your local Fastenal store (assuming they have a forklift—email us with questions) for you to pick up. Find your nearest Fastenal store and enter that detail when you place your order.

Feedback on our loaders

I just want to say thank you for manufacturing such a well built, well thought out product. I ordered a loader for my x595. It arrived in 2 days. I attached it to my tractor in less than 5 minutes. I used it to move a load of mulch and level my gravel drive. I could not be happier with my purchase and the icing on the cake is it is very well priced.

My one question I keep asking myself is how I got along without it! This is absolutely the best value for the money. This hooked up and plugged into my tractor and has met and exceeded all my expectations.

Problems ?? . . . I don’t have any!!! In fact, I am ecstatic!!! I just wish I knew about you guys 2 years ago!!!

I purchased your loader recently and it works great, have found multiple uses for it. Found the pick up was only limited by weight on tractor. I have a 720 with wheel weights and I weigh 180, had a rock in bucket and it easily picked, but tires were barely touching ground.

Steve, just wanted to send you a quick note on the loader. I LOVE IT! I have about 10 hours of use on it already and it works great. I’m prepping a site for a 15x42 building that is on 6x6 skids with a wood floor so I wanted the water to drain away. I dug out a 19x46 area about 3-4” deep and then yesterday had 23 ton of 1” washed granite hauled in and spread it out and leveled it with the loader. Everything went real well and I couldn’t be happier.
