Went to an auction today and this followed me home.I've been looking for one of these loaders for a very long time now.found one about 10 years ago but finances didn't allow it.Tractor runs,but leaks gas when engine is shut off.I'll have to work on the carb.Also have to work on the drive also. Pushing clutch in doesn't disengage belt enough to stop the belt,and drive pulley from spinning to allow me to change gears. have to shut the tractor off and put in gear that i need and start engine. Loader works great.Thinking about putting this on one of my 14's or even bolt it right onto my 10 or 12.I know i'll need to do some fabrication to put on a 14.So i'm not sure yet.

Way to go! Kind of odd on the bucket cylinder.

That's a great piece of equipment, I'd love to have one too! Looks like a gear drive tractor so the vari-drive may need adjustment too. I can't tell if it's a 10G or 12G though. I did learn that if the belt guard on the engine isn't there, the vari drive belt doesn't slow down enough to shift. I thought a quick "test run" would be ok without it----Wrong!

Great score!

Nice ! I don't think I ever saw that brand loader before , yea the bucket cylinder mounting is different , would you mind postings some picture of it in full curl and full dump ? Even the loader arm cylinders look bigger then most GT loaders . Do you know the capacity of it ?

I'll get some more detailed pictures of the cylinders,and the dumping.I'm not sure on the capacities yet.I wanted to work on it sunday but i was working on wifes impala.Inspection time and it needed pads and rotors all around. got the fronts done and water pump. water pump not an inspection issue but it was leaking.still have sway bar to get and replace,front calipers and rear pads and rotors to do yet.

That is awesome! I wouldn't mod it if that's what it was made for though. I would love a loader for my 14 or 16 too but I couldn't bring myself to mod something that cool. Especially if it was already on the tractor it was intended for. It will only be original once! Very nice find!
