Odd looking loader, complicated! Has the bucket leveling links all over.  Seems the towers are too tall!  If that is a Gilson tractor, I don't see it holding together in drive train to run that loader. Gilson always seem to have odd drive trains.

It's a Kwik-way loader and the company is still in business not far from here. Their new loaders look much more like the old Johnson workhorse loaders.

Your right. I wonder if they bought the rights to it?

I'd love to have a loader like that, but $ aren't there!

This M/W is a Gilson S series.  Other than the variable drive system that wears out, but can be replaced with a regular pulley, they use standard GT fair for the time.  Shaft drive right angle box and Peerless 2300, I believe.  Both of my M/W 16s are 40 plus and still going except for regular pulleys in place of variable drive.  Since I have two, one tractor is fast for mowing, plowing, etc.  The other is slow for tilling and snow blowing.  Would love to have a loader setup, but sadly too far and too high.  They are not valuable tractors, paid $75 at auction for one of mine, other is an heirloom.  The one in question is basically only worth what the loader is worth.  They would be a bear to steer with a loader, though.
