Got this pile of stuff put into the woods today. Pieces of wood and top soil. Would love to have a hydraulic loader. Loader are so handy.

No doubt a hydraulic loader would be nice! But you can not complain too much. You are demonstrating that cable lift and a trip bucket can do a lot of work too.

Back in the 50s and into the early 60s, there were still some cable lift manure loaders in use here in Iowa. In the 70s I helped my father-in-law raise the grade on a long driveway and dig out a garage with an AC WD45 with a manure fork converted to a bucket and trip dump. ( it was hydraulic lift). Took most of our free time all summer, but if you are willing to take the time it can still be done.
I think he paid $750 for the tractor with loader and a rear blade, needless to say it took no time at all to pay for itself.

That one would be easy to convert with a trim pump(12v DC) and a short cyl if you wanted down pressure.I did a lift on my craftsman with one I got off and old boat.Works great.

As always, fun to see it in operation.
Love the fact that the engineering (even tho, just for show) is operational.
Guess that's what they call Proof of Concept.

Thats super cool how you set the winch up...I would have never thought to do it that way.I would have had cables running all over the place.And with that set up you could for sure use the trim pump set up with no problem I think.

Yea..any old boat with a inboard engine will have one..they can be pricy on Ebay..but if you can find an old boat you can get them for free or really cheap.
