Stumbled on this just using my google-fu and waiting on my teenaged daughter to get ready to leave.

I personally would've picked a larger unit, but in the spirit of a newer unit most people have these days, this represents pretty well.

Speaking as someone who has or is raising two girls, if I was waiting for one of them to get ready, I may find this reading a little light.

Thanks Alan for sharing, that is quite interesting to breeze thru, will go back and look thru it more, but I hope he got a 100% on it.

 

I was shocked at the high end on the price to build it, as I could buy a used SCUT with loader for less then he estimates the cost of a Lawn Tractor Front end loader.

Wow! a Techincal report for sure!  Some Tech over my head. I was a little disappointed in the size of both tractor and loader in this plan, but lots of neat bracketry on it that might be copied for others. I like the quick-disconnect feature especially on the bucket. Looks like premium quality systems used in the hydraulics for sure, might get expensive with that type. Was Odd that the control was right along side the seat, instead of a reach ahead. Wonder how that would be???  My tractor has drive control there and would not work like that, but many others it would. Just seems it might be tooo close to operator? 

 

 Interesting on showing the other types of Johnny Buckets and such. That Husky loader is kinda neat, first have seen that. I've been thinking of looking into a johnny bucket type set-up to go on my Quick-tach system for the Power King.  Not really a loader, but would be less in way once off the tractor, unlike a loader which may have to stay on at all times. I would like to get a little more lift than a stock one tho. We have seen others here with ideas for doing that.

My friend's JD 6420 has the loader joystick right next to the seat. Literally, 1/3 of the way from your hip to your knee. You have to slip your hand around the joystick to hold out the safety tab to operate the loader. Very comfortable. I do believe that configuration is only available with the IVT.
