Massey Ferguson 12 with homemade loader. Tried to make the loader look similar to a pipe loader on a Massey Ferguson 135.

That is interesting.

Can you share more info about that with us?

How does it function? It's tough to see in the pictures, but

I'm not seeing any hydraulics there.

Looks cool the way you've made it look like a 135 FEL.

Thanks.

its run by a winch on the front of the tractor. No hydraulics. winch pulls pulls down on arm that comes out from front of tractor. will get a better picture. fun to use. was not really made for lifting only for show but it done all lot of work, snow, mulch, gravel you name it. wont lift much, about 30 lb. but can put more in it and it will hold it up , just wont lift it. i use it to sand driveway. i fill the bucket with sand, put the tractor in creeper gear, engine on idle, let the tractor drive its self while i walk be side it and throw the sand out of the bucket by hand and steer it while its creeping along. get lots of looks from people.

Ok, now I see. Yes, you need more leverage there.

If you really wanted to use it more, it wouldn't take much to

triple, quad, or more the pulley.

I bet you get some looks, while letting the tractor drive on it's own.

Don't let the Ministry of Protecting us from ourselves see that, or

they'll ban GTs. :smilewink:

Thanks for the pics. It looks even better in the close ups.

That's pretty cool! Hadn't thought about using a winch for lifting a loader.

I love it.  How long did it take to make something like that?

I would say about a month or more. Nights and weekends. And lot of thinking time. I am not a trained welder or fabricator. It was fun to do. Noel

Does this mean that there was never a loader option for the MF 12? I am buying one tomorrow with most of the attachments but not the loader, and I have read that it is capable of attaching one. Nice job one way or the other! My ol man will kill me if I ask him to build me this....lol
