I can't decide what this is.  Something reminds me of Terramite, but I can't find any pictures to prove it.

I'm 50/50 on that.  That hood looks to be very well designed as well as the fender/platform set up.  If it was homemade, it was a machinist who did it.

 

The hood looks a lot like the old skidloader hoods.

Looks homemade. Most home build's are made with salvaged parts from other equipment.

I would say homemade but, I saw one that was almost identical, for sale on CL in eastern CT, several months ago. Good Luck, Rick

He just put that on there so it would last a long time, no other reason. :smilewink:

I think Rick found it.  I wonder how it got to the eBay equipment dealer? 

 

I guess it is homemade using some clever designs and salvage parts.  I wonder how much pickup power that loader has.

Those arms look weak to me. It was only 10 - 15 miles from me but I didn't bother to look at it. Good Luck, Rick

I sure wouldn't want to lift much with the spindly loader arms.  Nothing at all preventing flex between the arms either.

That dealer is located in PA and is not just on ebay, they sell new and used farm equipment.  I grew up in Denver, PA (northeastern Lancaster co.) and have heard the name several times in the past.  Also, alot of the used equipment dealers in PA send buyers to the local auctions around here to buy fresh mercandise as well as send equipment to the same auctions that they are having trouble selling at thier dealerships.
