Do I need to know anything specific if I’m ordering for JD X models? 

Yes, two things: 1) We recommend replacing the pressure relief valve on the hydraulic unit so as to avoid any transmission problems. 2) Check our our weight bar and weight basket accessories before you purchase your loader.

Do you ship to Canada? 

At this time, we ship to limited areas in Canada to commercial addresses only.

How much is shipping and what is the difference between commercial vs. residential?

For commercial shipping ($190 to most places in the continental U.S.), we use 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.

If you select residential shipping ($350), this means you will need liftgate service for the pallet to be delivered to your home. For residential delivery, the shipping company will schedule a delivery appointment with you.

Are sales taxes applicable to me?

Only if you are an Illinois resident or picking up the loader in person.

Which forms of payment will you accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, personal checks, and PayPal.

How do I go about picking up a loader in person? 

Please contact us and allow 24 hour lead time to pick up your loader. We'll schedule the pick up with you at our factory, located at 228 West Page Street, in Sycamore, IL. 

If I order a Little Buck Loader today, how soon will I receive it?

We typically ship each week on Tuesdays/Thursdays. Orders received by Thursday will ship the following Tuesday, and orders received by Tuesday will ship on Thursday.
