I would like to know if anyone has a good detailed set of build prints with parts needed and instructions? I know some of you have already done this and should have some very good advise. I would buy one that is done but finding one and then getting it is not very easy. Seems the few i do find for sale are so far away from me it would cost me more in fuel to get it than i would be paying. I found a web site that has plans for a price. I would rather spend all money on the parts i will need. Thanks for the help.

Sounds like an interesting project. I don't have plans but I would like to wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Thanks for the heads up about the MF forum i will take a look. I hope to be able to do something soon. I have a compact tractor with a loader that i might try to use as a templet just scale it down to fit a GT.

:wave: Hi gapper. I was wondering what type of GT are you going to install the loader on.

I have a Allis Chalmers B12 that has a hydraulic front loader on it. I also have the manuals for both models of the Allis loder for this tractor. (L-10 and L-12)

The difference between the two models is the L-10 has a trip bucket and the L-12 has the hydraulic bucket.

Here is what my loader looks like.

That's a nice looking B12. The tiller loader combination makes a sharp looking package.

I had it set up that way for the show in Huron, South Dakota, they featured Allis that year.

On the back end when I use the loader I have to use the rear rock box attachment.

It said in the book for to balance the tractor out you have to put 300 pound of weight in the rear box. It is an attachment that comes with the loader new.

It also said the loader was intended to only lift 300 pounds.

Tim, I am thinking of putting a loader on my charger 10 or my B-100 Both are hyrdo drive and i think will have the power to run the loader. Woopud,(Bert) You can email the plans you found to me. I am going to try and start finding raw steel for my build. I have a loader on my Mitsubishi MT180D 4wd compact. I might try to scale down the size to fit my tractors. The Mitsubishi is a great tractor but i want somethig a little smaller so it will not be so heavy to hawl around and will do less damage to yards i might need to run over.
