I love the Surplus Center and brouse through their site. This looked like a good deal for someone wanting to build a FEL. http://www.surplusce...OR-1-3999-H.axd

That is a heck of a deal!  If I were going to build another, I'd buy that, then adapt it!

I agree there. A lot to work with. Just need a beefy tractor.

The cylinders usually cost a fella at least $100 each, so no way one could go wrong with this deal.  Of course freight will likely add a couple hundred to the total, but still......

A MF 1523 is 102" long, 42" wide, and has a 60" wheelbase. Not too far off from the Bolens.

I have to agree that that would be an unbeatable place to start. Along with the cylinders, I can't help but wonder how much it would cost to buy and have all those steel lines bent to fit??

They have two different models, 1 for hydro tranny's and 1 for gear tranny's.  But, they're going fast.

Normal ground freight to Salt Lake City to a business with a forklift is $176.  The unit weighs 575 lbs. 

 

Here's the specs on the loader:

Let us know what it looks like when you get it. It was going to be $340 shipping to me. That will make the loader cost too much for me. I've got a couple allready anyway. Good Luck, Rick

Have you tried hooking up with a commercial company--salvage yard, construction business, etc., or anyone that handles a lot of freight and see if they'll use their discount to ship stuff for you?  My old company is a salvage yard for construction equipment.  They get 70% discount from Old Dominion Truck Lines.

Thanks, I hadn't. I really shouldn't get into any more projects until I knock off 20 of the ones I've got. I look into things but then realize that I've got a big list of projects that really needs to get done and I must work on the important ones like the house and my truck. Good Luck, Rick
