When I was a kid our loaders had full hydraulics unlike this one.

 

This is borderline child abuse.

It has hydraulics, just the assisted version. :D

That could be a handy adult tool.

Yeah was that a 3 tine or 5 tine fork?? I remember one whole winter pitching into a traction drive manure spreader pulling it a half mile and spreading it with a BF Avery model A.
we found the floor of that barn 2 ft down.
I remeber thinking cable lift and trip buckets weere a pretty good piece of equipment.

No tthat is not child abuse!! Thats a useful toy that we could never have dreamed of.

We had 5 & 6 tined forks for the "leftovers" Silage was loaded with 5 tined barley forks.

 

I used to have a model "A" Avery that I plowed gardens around town with in the early 70's!  ~~  Lowell

Very nice work. My bucket loader was wood handled and used foot power to dig. When I needed the fork attachment for grass or hay work I prefered the 5 tine VS 4 tine. Less work more moved.                                                                  Roger.

That's a way to get a kid to do something other than sit in the house playing games and getting fat like 80% of the kids around here. He probably is as proud as a peacock being the only one around with a TRACTOR LIKE THAT.

Abuse, I used to think abuse was pitching a manure spreader full from the calf barn and hauling it out to the field with the super C in the dead of winter and the unloading chain would break. Then I would have to pitch it out so we could fix the chain.

Looking back, it wasn't abuse at all, it was being responsible for fixing what I broke. Oh those were the days of a 13 year old (tired) kid :thumbs:
