FINALLY, got it finished, took it out for a test run and I didn't have any problems. It lifts a little slower since it has bigger cylinders but it also lifts a little more weight. It reaches over the dump truck but I will not be able to fill it very full because the bucket dumps below the side of the truck. The loader even has a handy place to store stand, it slides right in and pins on.

Only thing that needs fixed now is the valve, it is missing a nut because the threads are striped out. I'm going to replace it with a bolt tomorrow.

You'll get it built one of these days, it seems like I never have time for my projects either, I barely had time to get this loader done and it was a pretty easy process.

Good luck :beerchug:

Wow, that looks great. Glad it didnt fight you.
You can gain a little height by having a little berm to run your tires up on or an incline to back the truck into
I suppose you could also put 24" tires on the front :poke:

It is just sinful that you have so many loaders you can play mix an match while some of us poor underprivileged deprived and disenfranchised shovel pushers have none. Spread the wealth dude.

It sure gives a shovel man a case of envy. Something to dream about.

I never thought I would have so many choices to choose from, I never would have switched over if the Koyker wouldn't of been quick attach, it's something I've always wanted since I use this tractor with a finish mower in the lawn and also use it a LOT in the gardens.

I just always keep a close eye on craigslist, I check it 3 times a day and click on every ad that comes on so they turn a different color so I know which ones I have looked at.

I will say, I thought I'd never buy a 4' bush hog and Koyker quick attach loader for $350  :thumbs: :worshippy1: :rocker2: :dancingbanana: :deadhorse:

I don't need another loader, but I'd gladly pay that and they could keep the mower!
