Just shift the load to one side and you're all set

They were somewhat common on mid sized garden tractors for aTime, they work fine for the load they're made to handle.

IH put many of those on Farmall Cub's.  I am just curious though as to what "widow washer fluid "is?  Doesn't sound nice.

The same washer fluid you put in your car or truck to clean your windshield,  works good if it don't get too cold.

Some older farm tractors had them. Farmalls and fords. Neat to see on a garden tractor. Noel.

Might work OK but seems to me a garden tractor of that size is pretty much taxed with a two-arm loader setup. 

Concentrating the stress on one side is certainly less than ideal. 

Still be fun to play with.

I think pf engineering has or had plans for a one arm loader for a gt.  IIRC the picture they had of it was on a Murray LT and maybe one on a Cub Cadet

the arm looks pretty beefy.  if you could hang a 54" blade on the bucket it could make a decent snow mover w/backup scoop for big piles.  then have a nice power shovel in summer.  seems like a decent price w/the extras if it was closer i'd have a look

All I've seen mount so that the load is spread across the frame.

It is , kind of. There is 200# of ballast weight on the other side. That would even out the empty bucket weight

LOL!!!!  I know what they were trying to say, just not quite how it was spelled.
