Someone should get right on this.

There's still time to get it built, and entered in the Tractor of the Month contest.

When I first read the article I was a little skeptical myself. But the more I thought about it, if it does what the guy needs it for, so be it.
As far as selling plans, that would be a whole different can of worms.

Looks like the main lift arms are outside the front tires. Better hope so because if they aren't the bucket won't go all the way to the ground. If they are outside you can't turn the front wheels [steer] when the bucket is down.
