Hey there... anyone know if the front end loader was designed to work with a '68 SS12 ?  Anyone with some good pics of a loader, how it attaches, pump location and drive ?  What kind of weight does it safely handle ?  ( Assuming here that rear counterweights are used ).

 

Thx,

 

Tom

That's a Kwik way loader. They are still made not far from here. You might want to contact them.

You can do a google search for "sears suburban loader" and go to images, tons of pics pop up. they fit pretty univeral '66-'79 as far as frame mounts, etc.

Pretty sure pumps mounts right of the side near engine pulleys.

not sure of rating, but I would estimate #250-300 bucket load would be safe, but we all know we push them farther than that.

 

You can find them, but expect a min price tag of about $800 for a working one.
