Not sure if I would call that a loader or FEL.

Am I looking right, are those arms like 1" tube and the bracing just angle iron?

I would be afraid to lift anything with that, the hydro cyls would twist it in half.

Your link didn't work, but I did find it:

Listing is for the loader ONLY.

 

The cylinders look like they are stout enough to lift an elephant !!!!

 

However, the rest of the loader might not be able to handle said elephant's t**d :rolling:

If you look at all the pictures in the Ad it's a pretty strange setup. The angle that the lift cylinder is working at is going to limit the lift capability and the loader arm pivots look like they are just bolted to the angle iron which is not very strong to say the least.

Yep, that lift cylinder geometry won't allow much of a load to be lifted.  Good thing it's ran off the hydro charge pump, as with a normal hydraulic pump's higher pressure, that lift cylinder geometry would pull the loader in half!

From the looks of things, you could dump a bucket load right on top of your hood by tilting back all the way.

Just because you can... doesn't mean you should.
