Yesterday morning I found a front end loader and a Howse rough mower. The guy didn't have the size of either one, just some pictures of them laying in the tall grass and weeds. I couldn't see the brand of the loader or the mounts. He wanted $200 each, I emailed him (email only) and told him I'm very interested and to call me. I finally got a call that night, he said he still had them, he didn't know right off hand of the loader bucket size, but he thought it was around 50" to 60" and I told him I would take them both.
He didn't have any way to load them since he just traded off his tractor and I told him I'll bring my 24' trailer with Kubota to load them. He said if I'll bring a trailer with tractor he will knock off $50 :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

 

I headed up there this after noon, the loader turned out to be a Koyker 110 with a 4' bucket, the loader looks close to new, it still has paint in the bucket. The best part is, this loader is quick attach :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: . I handed the guy $350, unloaded the kubota and went to work!!!!. 

 

He said he knows he's selling it off cheap, but they are sitting on a empty lot on the edge of town and he's afraid of them getting stolen.

 

My plan was to stick this loader on a Farmall A that I just bought and then sell them together. But since this is a quick attach and a lot nicer looking then my Leon 400 that's on my Kubota, I'm going to switch them out and keep the Koyker :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

Oops, forgot to say the size, It's a 4 footer, which is perfect size for my 20hp Kubota, I already have a 5' finish mower and I will probably sell the this Howse mower. I don't have a whole lot of use for it.

Excellent score BTS. So what will you do with the Leon loader?

 

I'm probably going to put the Leon loader on the old Farmall A and sell it. I don't really have a use for 2 loaders like that. the extra $$$$ will also help.

I also have a Kwik Way loader for my Bolens HT-23 and I have another nice loader that I built for my John Deere 140. How many loaders do I really need???

I always wonder if the seller didn't steal it when a price is that low.

Got the loader off the trailer today and got it propped up on it's stand. Also got the joystick valve bolted back on and I sized up the loader to the Kubota. I started measuring and the loader is about 8" wider then the Leon 400, it is also little longer, I will pull off the Leon loader this weekend and start mounting the Koyker 110.

 

I also took the mower out of a test drive, the old thing is so quite it's like it's not even running. I mowed off some 5' tall weeds with out even slowing down.
