    Default Homemade loader pics

    Well, here is a pic of the loader I was building and talking about in previous posts. It is now complete and working good with the exception of a slow dumping bucket. Pics where taken before hoses and a few last minute details were applied. Total cost was about $1600.00. Thanks to all... Visa. P.S This thing digs like no loader should.... No kidding...

    Wow. You did this with duct tape, a hammer, orange paint and super glue? Impressive!

    Did you model this after an existing loader? Very nice job. Ditto on the closeups - show more!

    That is way cool! Those look like pretty big cylinders. Probably contributes to the slower operation, but also would tend to multiply the power. I also vote for close-ups & specs.

    Thanks all for the kind words. No special tools other than an old stick welder, a 14" chop saw. grinder and a free cad program that I found on the net where used. Build time - 120 hours or so. Bucket width - 4 foot. Bucket Height - 20". Total lift from bucket pivot to ground - 72". Dump angle at full lift - 45 degrees. The following pics are all I had laying around from the project. Thanks again.
