I have a couple of threads about my loader project and thought I'd share the (almost) finished project before the paint refurb begins.  Does it look like it will do the trick?  I still need to create a bracket to support the exhaust, replace a hose with a shorter one, and figure out a few minor tweaks but it seems to lift and dump well.  Picked up 2 - 200 lb. students about 2 feet off the ground before we decided the rear end should probably stay on the concrete before we went any further.

Glad you got it done...well almost. How bad does the pump bracket chatter when its running or doesn't it?

No chatter. I put in a gusset as per the advice of a helpful GTTalk member!

I couldn't see one in the pics. You must have hid it nicely.

Looks really nice on the Raider. Have you figured out to add a weight box on the back? Are you going to put AG's on it or just run snow chains? Should be a real worker now. Thanks for sharing !! :thumbs:

Haven't thought much about weight yet.  I'll start with some weight on the wheels and maybe configure something to bolt up to the brackets that are supported by the transaxle after that if necessary.  This thing will probaby see lighter duty - mostly moving the snow pile the city puts at the end of my driveway.  Maybe pulling out a GT engine here and there.  Can't do too much here in town.  If the funding gods treat me favorably it might see some AGs in the future after I spruce it up.
