    Took it to a hydraulic shop to get hoses made. Here are pictures from 8-17-2005, if you right click on the pictures, you can open them in a new tab or window, depending on your browser.

    Hoses on, it works!

    8-18-2005 Made this fork carriage many years previous for an old Craftsman loader.
    Works on this one, using longer pins. I later added angle iron to support a shorter pin the normal way.

    8-24-2005 Had this old tractor brushguard in my scrap pile, so I welded a piece of 2 inch square tubing to it, so that it would fit in the receiver hitch.-p8241944-jpg-p8241946-jpg-p8241947-jpg-p8241948-jpg-p8241949-jpg

    11-7-2005 Ten sacks of horse feed. Notice the old Craftsman Loader for sale by the fence. I was going to use it, but got this wider one.

    7-22-06 Removed the receiver hitch from the Toro, modified the brushguard to bolt on where the hitch was, and built a receiver hitch into the brushguard.
    -p7222289-jpg

    That is a 100 pound block of steel laying between the brushguard and the frame.

    Two 100 pound tractor weights.

    11-30-2005 Added a guard to prevent full speed forward, when it touches a tree trunk at the edge of the burn pile. Guess how I know it would do that!

    12-11-2005 Cut a 90 conduit, put it over the cut off exhaust pipe, to keep the brushguard cleaner.

    This happened 8-9-2006. Was using the forks to knock the dirt off of the root ball on a willow tree that the dozer dozed. Backed up, but it didn't turn uphill, because the right front tire was almost flat (slow leak). The right front dropped into a hole, and the Toro went over, I fell off of the seat onto the side panel. The engine was still running, I had to raise up and reach under my butt to turn off the key. I was right at the edge of the water, the loader tower was in the water. I got my tractor, put a chain on the left loader arm and pulled it upright.

    Looking south from the dam.

    This is the root ball I was knocking the dirt off of.

    Notice the 100 pound block of steel at the lower right, that fell off of the brushguard.
    -p8092314-jpg
    I left it chained to the tractor, got on, crossed my fingers, it started and I backed up the hill.
    The loader wasn't up very high and the hole wasn't very big, but it sure went over fast.

    Thanks, it is both a toy and a tool, but not a toy tool.

    I have used it a lot, some of the dead trees in that burn pile were pulled by the MF240D, but it didn't have a loader, so the pile was made with the TORO.
