That looks pretty light duty for a loader..I would bend that up in the first 5 mins of use.

Whoever built it has some fab skills. He should have had a bigger budget for heavier steel though.

I kept looking at it. Finally figured what bothered me.
Where's the outrigger or gusset structure? It appears the whole load is balanced on the uprights?

What's with bucket in last pix?  Upside down mounted bucket?  Or am I missing something there?  Yep, must be Chinese......looks like real thing, just cheaply made, ha!   Plans out of "Mother Earth News"?

The first picture in the ad is the front shot... I thought it was a loader, or at least a Johnny Bucket on an older tractor--maybe a Wheel Horse, etc.  When I saw the side pics, I thought... wow, what does he lift with THAT?????

 

Don't miss the dual rear wheels--with about 10" between the tires...

Bucket's not upside down, just the angle of the picture, look closely and you can tell. It's cute, if worthless!
