    Default Waldon 5000 loaders

    Curious if anyone has any experience with Waldon articulated loaders? I ran into some for sale on craigslist, like this one here: Waldon Loader

    It seems like the 5000 series would be what I am after. Curious if they are a suitable replacement for a skid steer? Or if they have the hydraulics to run skid steer attachments? I want a machine for moving material around my property faster than my Terramite, loading a single axle full size dump truck, and putting forks on to move large pallets of firewood. I like that fact that these wont rip up the lawn near as bad as a skidder. Let me know if anyone has any info or experience with them.

    I got this old Waldon 500 allready for 15 yrs(looks similar to yours)
    build like a tank,strong as an ox.
    Like you said they are easy on a lawn and more agile than a skidsteer.

    I got right now a 6.2 GM diesel in it(soon to be replaced with a 3054 cat).
    you can like i did change the hydr pumps with a commercial stackable one if you want to up the flow(mine are a 50 and 35 gal/min)(see pic)

    A good solid loader as long as you're not in a hurry on rough terrain(bumpy like h3ll).

    can a 5000 load a single axle full size dump? I like the old tank style machines, easy to work on and get parts for, would be perfect around my property if I could find one cheap...

    Don't know if the 5000 has a higher reach,ask the guy that has it for sale.

    My 500 loader arms can just reach over te side of the box on a tandem gravel truck.I think 9'

    As far as using skid steer attachments is concerned, the bigger problem than hydraulics is that it doesn't have the skid steer coupler.

    Well ,that is easy enough to solve with a attachment blank,some steel,a drill press,a cutoff saw and a welder.

    Except that he'll need the male side of the coupler which is just a wee bit more involved than scabbing a mounting onto the back of an attachment.
