Thanks for the reply sergeant, I would like to make it a loader I can somewhat easily take off but it could wind up a dedicated loader tractor as I have other tractors for grass cutting and snow removal.

Mine is totally dedicated for loader use. That's the great thing about having a bunch of tractors....not always taking something off & putting something else on.

Really nice picture. One thing comes to mind. No rocks! You would need a major excavator to dig a hole like that here! The tooth bar makes all the difference for digging in compacted soil.

That is impressive. That soil is just what I expect to find when I get started on the Cellar, I plan to cut into the hill beside my house.
About a foot of top soil and Yellow Clay.

Olcowhand, I looked at the hydro in the 1855, its the sundstrand. I don't know why I thought it had fins on it! Went to tractor supply today and bought a seat with a gift card my niece gave me for christmas, nice one with arm rests and all! Gonna start the loader build soon. Do you remember the wall thickness of the tubing you used? Bill.

Both are good, but like I said, I think the Sundstrand is the best. I don't know the gauge, but the metal was about 1/8" thick.
