I came across this and am amused by the one armed loader.

A member of the board, CadPlans sells plans for a loader like that, and several other plans.
As long as it was used within it's design limits I think it would be ok.
But I for one would probably push the limits and twist something.

I've seen them before and they are really stout and the side entry makes it nice.

That design seems to me to be asking for problems long term. Can't imagine that it offers a very stable platform for a loader. Looks like the torque applied to the entire frame of loader and tractor by pushing on one side will eventually lead to an early death for the major componenets of the loader, arms, pivot pins, even piston rods,etc. I have no personal experience with one of these, but it doesn't look to promising to me. Just my two cents.

That doesn't have enough room in the cab to sneeze, let alone run one for 10 hours comfortably.

These loaders almost always have a large counterweight on the side opposite the boom, there are still a lot of cubs out there with one arm bandits as they are sometimes called.
