Good afternoon-


Are the Buford loaders still being manufactured? If so, could you send the contact information for the manufacturer my way? I have a 318, and would like to put a FEL on it.


Thank you-

You can try this. He's the one that made (and maybe still does) those loaders.

Pete just posted this on another site just a few days ago, August 25th.......................

Hey Guys:

I need to apologize for always not responding as fast as I did in the past. I've had a couple of health issues, some crazy over time at work, a To Do list that is looking like a book now as I have a 50 acre farm to take care of and the fact that I don't have a full time welder now. It was nice to sell a lot of loaders each year but when I pay a full time worker my bottom line does not look that good, he ended making more for each loader than I did. It was like the two guys selling hay they paid $4.00 a bale drove 60 miles and sold it for $4.00, one guy said to the other hey we aren't making any money, I know the other guy says we need to get a bigger truck. I could raise the cost but I have always tried to make them affordable for most people. I am 65 now and will reach full retirement age at 66 in March. If things go as planned I will start to build them full time. I hate to admit it but I have slowed down the last year or so. To answer a question on the roll on sub frame, it does have the spring pins on the side, with a bolt on each side and 2 bolts on the bumper, weight bracket See the pic on the x485. It is solid as a rock. To any one who has emailed me please try again, I will get back to you.
