My neighbor may have a JD 4440 tractor up for sale in a few months.  This 4440 does not have a loader on it and I have a question on potentially putting a loader on this tractor.  For those of you that may have a 4440 with a loader, is your loader powered using the rear remotes or do you have a separate spool valve system tapped into the tractor hydraulics somehow?  Ideally, I would like to have a joystick controller to operate the loader and not tie into the rear remotes. 


Thanks, John.

Thank you for the information Jim.  That is what I was looking for.  Not sure if the tractor is in the cards but we shall see.  Thanks Again, John.

We have a 4440 with a loader and the kit Jim shows. It works really well. We load a lot of bales each year with it.
