First time I've see a round hood with a FEL.

Price seems a bit on the high side, and the odd ball lights is a minus.

I've seen those early loaders on WH's...neat and collectible.  I have an early AC loader similar to the Danco's, and neat/collectible is about where their big value ends.  They are better than a shovel, but can be a handful to operate vs something a bit more modern.  

 

I see he scabbed on a cylinder for the bucket...OEM was trip style, but hydro dump is far superior for work.

Aw come on you know the loader is worth at least $3,000!

You could even part it out too!

 

 

 

 

Weight box is missing .......

Well, kinda like the lights look myself!  Sort of a narrow eyed face look, like a weak guy that ends up being real strong and rescues the others. Like a cartoon charactor then see?  No?  Never Mind!  I like the way he modified the bucket to be bigger and more useful for holding in the load.  That blade is orange in pix.....must be a Power King blade really, ha!

The thing is the lights are asymmetrical.  Gives it a wall-eyed look  :rolling:

 

Brian, you need to work a bit more at trying to be sarcastic. That is pretty much a fail at it.
