Last night I made a road trip with Ryan. On the way back, it was reported that I was on I79, Driving While Smiling My Butt Off. ( Me> :D )

Met a great fellow GT Collector (gave him a card) and brought this rig home.
The tractor has been repowered with a 10 horse the grill is broken and the tranny is shot... I didnt buy it for the tractor. :D

Small leak at pump pulley, but the rest is in great shape. The forks are home made, but very well done.
I may need to modify them a little for full sized pallets, but one thing at a time. :D

Thinking about what tractor to put it on... May be the Roper 18t with hydro. :D

The gent also threw in some goodies. A few parts from an old Sears he no longer has, an extra set of tires with wider offset, and a front end he had planned on putting under with wider stance and 1" axles. :D

272 miles, road trip with son to talk thru some issues and bond, a FEL... :D

My cheek muscles hurt. :D

It has to live on the trailer until I get the dump rake finished, then I get to play with hydraulics.

whew I wasnt sure what DWSMBO was. I was thinking.. Dancing With Some of My Butt Out. :dancingbanana:

I did that once on the Fiesta Party boat in Cancun. Free tequila isnt really free, you pay for it by losing most of the next day

You lucky dog! Looks like that was a very productive trip, though! Better hurry up on that dump rake! We want to see more of this!

My cheek muscles hurt. :D

A 272 mile road trip will do that depending on the comfort level of your seats.

 

Looked like a very worth while trip for something that is quite useful.  Once you get that baby mounted and usable, you'll wonder what you ever did without one.

Nice score, building up quite the collection. :thumbs:

Yes i think the hydro would be a good candidate, pending couple things.  Is the hydro hand or foot operated? and are the controls for the loader on the same side? ( hard to tell from the pics) It would be hard to run both at same time .

Nice loader. Is it self levelling ? Looks like it. I would like to have a hydraulic loader. Noel

Great find, my Olde Deere always wanted a loader like that.

   Reminds me of a song, "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Come Off".  And then there's that house in the background on pic #1--- is it really that much off the level? Neat optical illusion, makes me dizzy looking at it.

I think the sagging high lines aren't helping matters! I like that song, by the way!

Only if I squint at the same time...

thanks for NOT sharing pictures

I will get there ASAP, tell life to stop getting in the way of my hobby :D

Thanks, I read this at lunch... Snorting cold pizza thru your nasal cavities is a good way to choke.

The roper has the hydro right next to where the loader levers would be. I will have to build a wobble pedal to use it well.

Nice loader. Is it self levelling ? Looks like it. I would like to have a hydraulic loader. Noel


Yes, it has the levelers. Seems to be a nice feature

I hate you.

Hey, YOU'RE the one with the FF...
