I've got a 1956 Cockshut 1250 diesel. It's in excellent shape and I use it regularly on the farm.

I'm wondering if anyone has ever rigged up a front end loader on this model before? I'm a bit worried that the front axle may be a bit light for the weight. Any thoughts?

Loaders definitely put some strain on front axles. I guess the determining factor would be what you are planning on using it for.

That is a nice looking Cockshut!
