Interesting design. it looks more like a forklift based design than a tractor but would probably make a good loader tractor. It looks designed to keep most of the weight on the front wheels but the rear end looks like it could use some weight with a 68" bucket up front. It's hard to say without talking to the designer.

Looks cool and very interesting, but a little out of my price range! Somebody was really thinking when they made that!

He does have the engine in the rear for some counterweight.

Definitely well thought out though.

If it is well built and reliable the price is certainly fair. It doesn't look like it would have the same versatility of a tractor with a 3pt. hitch but for fork lift and loader duties all in one machine it looks like a fair price.

It needs some serious weight added to the drive wheels, as when that bucket is down, it has little traction, and virtually NO digging power, as if you put down pressure, you lift the weight off the drive wheels. Definitely limited to loader use.
