This video is pretty cool. The tugging part is set up like a forklift, and I though that was slick, but then he had to build an FEL capable of setting a sheet of plywood on the roof. I don't care where this thread really belongs, because I am still very impressed with the guys fab skill.
Loader For Raising Plywood To The Roof... Very Impressed.

Thats pretty cool! I wonder how much iron he added to the frame to beef it up. Its a simple set up, but the one I would do different is fab some guards so you don't crush you legs when bringing the loader down.

Very nice! I'll bet he fabs a loader bucket soon also!

That is handy as heck !!

Now there's a man on a mission. Yes Casey, he's got some good fabricating skills.
I like that rear trailer lift. With a bit of thinking, one could easily make a quick attach
set of forks for that.

Is that tractor old enough to be smoking like that?
Yes, nice fab skills, I wonder why he isn;t using something with a stouter frame?

Wow that is neat. Lots of ideas in my head now.

That shows some real fabrication skills and was well thought out. Two things that concern me are that there are no guards that would prevent that sheet from sliding down the arms and take his head off. The other is that he is climbing under arms that could crush him if a line blew.
I nearly witnessed the first case. A guy had a large load of plywood in a cargo van, was going down a long hill and the stop light changed. He tried to stop and 6 sheets went over his head and out through the windshield. He was fortunate in that he only got a couple pretty good dings in his head and a mess of stitches fixed him up. This happened in frnt of the office where I worked and I helped him into the office. His brother worked with me and he took him to the hospital.

It looks like a good tool for that particular job. I am not sure the arms would be stout enough for a FEL. I dont think the front axle would handle the weight if the back end started coming up. It looks like a low end, mower grade LT

Wow! That's pretty cool. Amazing what a little time and skill can do for a guy.

I'm curious as to how he got the Hydraulic pump hooked to it. It is an LT, most likely vertical shaft engine. But it works and that is the main thing.
