Can't say I've ever seen a loader attached in this manner.

A permanent modification. I suppose it's easier to see what you are lifting and maybe easier to maneuver, but I'm not sure on that. It would certainly make it easier to turn if you didn't have power steering.

I'm thinking it could get light in the front, but on the narrow fronts, a regular loader is less than OSHA approved safety wise.

Lots of tip overs from row crops with loaders as there is no width to stabilize up there.

This was actually kinda common in the days before skid loaders were commonplace. I have seen several and there is one a mile away from me. The thing is that the ring gear and pinion was easy to turn around on these tractors and you had 4 speeds backwards. Not real safe as stated earlier but this was done in the 60's and 70's.

Please keep all arms and legs inside the car at all times during the ride, or they shall be removed at the machines' discretion.

A/C actually built several of these on the smaller CA and D14 model tractors in the 50's and 60's. I don't think this one is FACTORY though, as all of them I've seen had a wide front and counter weights.
