Nice tractor. The loader looks real flimsy though.

I'd buy it for the bucket, cylinders and weights,


You never see things that cheap around here

I was thinking the same thing! I would keep all of the hydraulic components and bucket to build a REAL fel.

'll bet that the FEL is a lot stouter than you guys are thinking.

You can see the open end of a piece of that tubing just behind the left rear wheel.

I'd say that it's at least 1/4' wall thickness, which would make that very stiff, and able to handle quite a bit of weight.

In any event, with a tube frame you wouldn't want to be moving all that much weight anyway. I wouldn't want to be moving any more than @3-400 Lbs.

I see where you mean, but I don't think that it is quite that thick. It very well could be, but I am not convinced.

I attached a picture for when the ad gets deleted.
