Got the shop built high loader home!

I bought this at a auction about 50miles away, loading it on the trailer was a little scary because it has no brakes!

So far everything seems to work just fine, it could use a tune up because it doesn't like to idle, but I don't know how long the ol thing has been sitting.

I do need to make chain tensioners because for both drive chains but besides that it's ready to go.

I have a bucket, but I need to make quick attach mount on it.

It has a International  engine and transmission out of a grain truck.

The loader is a Welco 1600 High Lift.

To give a idea on the size, the loader uprights are 7ft tall and the canopy is 10 1/2ft tall.

When you posted about this when you bought it, I was worried about counterweight. But I didn't pay close attention to the geometry of the loader arms and the lift cylinders. If you lift a gt with that it will get it over the side rails of the trailer then swing in closer. No balance issues there.

That might just move a mountain, or at least pick it up high enough to sweep the dirt under it lol.

Looks like you have a Mobility "Big Dipper" loader in the center of the "3 loader pic".  That's what I use for putting sawdust into my dairy stalls.  Handy little things, but not good traction without a bucketful are they!

Well, if you come and steal it, it's going to be a long drive at 8mph lol.

 

Yes that is a Mobility Big Dipper, they are a really handy machine but they do lack weight in the front end, especially since I have around 600lbs of extra counter weights on the back!

NEVER use it if it's even the lightest bit muddy LOL

 

Hoping to get a bucket on it at the first of the week, I'll update everyone when I get it finished.

 

Thanks

Is that home-made?

 

Looks neat, but be careful you don't turn it over with the "high-lift" and articulation of the tractor.

I'd sure have to figure out a brake system for it, unless it has one, but is just out of order.

Yes it is homemade,

It seems pretty sturdy, but it's always on my mind and I'm always careful when turning with the loader in the air.

It has brakes, but they where dry on fluid, I'm going to half to bleed them out and get them working.

I also need to replace the seat, there is no bottom in it so it lays you down and you can't reach the pedals.

 

It's needing a little work, but I think it's going to be a pretty nice loader when I get it fixed up!

Thanks

Here are a few pictures of the extension pole for lifting rafters and ect into place.

The pole is 16 1/2' long so I can lift 33' in the air!

That is good height. Just double check all the welds on lifting apparatus. Wouldnt want someone to get hurt from a broken weld.
