Got the loader picked up last night and off loaded at our shop this morning. This was the first time I have had to operate when I was backing it off the trailer. The clutch is slipping badly, had to use chain and roll the bucket to load it. It will move with it up on high idle. Here's a couple photos of it on the trailer as we were unloading it. Also a video taken by a Buddy of mine who thought I would have a wreck unloading it, he even says that at the end.

Brian, I got two words for you... Jack Stands.

 

Nice loader, but if you ever have a trailer come off the ball with a heavy load, hope your buddy is around with that camera, because it'll be a doozy.

Alan, You can't see them, but the ramps have down legs on them. I used the ditch and drive to help keep me flat unloading as the bottom of the backhoe hung up loading up the ramps. The hitch on the truck in a positive lock on the ball. It can't slip off like some of the flip over latches can.

A good hoe operator wouldn't need the clutch to load/unload! Just use the backhoe to push yourself on and pull it off. Keep the loader bucket low for stability!

Who said Brian was a good hoe operator?   :rolling:    :smilewink:  :smilewink:  :smilewink:   Thought the same about that bucket up high, keep everything low whenever ya can brian!  Not a bad looking unit.  Tell ya what, drop that machine off here & I'll put you a clutch in her.  But ya gotta leave it a while to pay me back.  Say like 2 or 3 years.......yeah, that would do it!   :smilewink:

Thanks guys, haha! I had the bucket up to clear the truck bed in case decided to roll forward while I was trying to get it to move. Then I was more worried about centering the ramps to think about lowering it. Had less then 1/2 rear tire on each ramp.

That is a nice machine!! Like everyone else I could think of a lot of projects that would perfect for,
Starting with draining 1/2 acre of marsh, tapering the bank back along the waterway so they do not cave in. building spring house and laying pipe so i can irrigate my garden. Digging out a cave for produce storage. I have not yet begun to get creative, making up excuses to use a machine like that.

Brian, when you drop it off at my place, I have a spot you can back the trailer up to so you won't even need ramps.   :smilewink:

That's a nice machine, I have a  case 530CK loader / backhoe, but the guy who had it before me took off the backhoe :( I have had nothing but trouble with it and now thinking about selling it and buying something like you just bought!

I don't know what a clutch would be like to put in, but once it's all fixed up you will have a very nice TLB.

Thanks for the pics and video

Good luck on your project and have fun with it
