I built this so I wouldn't have to use a wheel barrow to move 10yds of topsoil.

Enjoy the pics.

Nice job, Dennis!! I agree with you -- loaders are definitely back savers!

Nice looking loader Dennis! I'm thinking of building one for my son's 316. How is the steering effort with a load in the bucket. Power steering would be nice,I'm sure,but that's not an option.

Dennis, Nice fabrication.

That bucket is out there! Are you having a hard time keeping the rear planted with a load in the bucket?

Dennis, I forgot to ask earlier, did you add another hyd circuit to your 316, or change out the original single circuit ?

Thanks guys for nice compliments.

Dale, Yes I added a dual spool for Aux-Hyd.

Tom, its hard to keep the back down. I bought a three point from a member on here to help with that problem.

Dan, I bought a 318 frame and steering form a local guy and did a conversion after I built the loader. Having power steering really makes a difference.

If I may add some constructive criticism, why did you put the bucket so far out from the front of the tractor? That increases the lever arm effect and takes that much more weight off the rear wheels. Plus it takes up more room and reduces manovereability.

Dennis,
Looks great, gets the job done, was prob cheaper then buying one, and looks like mounting it would take less then 15 minutes. How much time did you have in building it and cost if you don't mind my asking?

Look a whole lot like the or-built loader. You defently should put a weight box on the back though. Congrats on the build it far better then I could have ever done. Gary

All, I'm so sorry that I have not followed up with any of these questions. I have been away for a bit. I built this purely for fun and just to see if I could do it.

(Matthew) I do have action shots but I don't have them as they are on my wife's cell phone. I lifted my neighbor up and he weights 200lbs.

(Mike D) It does sit out a little further than a 44 and others but still way closer than the OR-built. I do plan on shorting up the arms maybe this summer or next. I also plan on separating the hydraulics from the tractor and run them off the PTO. As for maneuverability it doesn't affect me with what I'm doing. I built this just for fun and I love TIG welding.

(Mike N) It takes 5 minutes to install and I have about $450 into it.

(Gary) I plan using a 3-point on the back with weights. I'm going to make my own hitch when I get some time. As for the 3-point, I bought one from a member on here. I just need two more 42lbs weights and I'll have four.

I have a lift like that also. I stressed over buying it for a long time because they are almost $1000 (several years ago) by the time I paid freight and got the options I wanted. Side extensions and cycle vise are very handy But, now that its in my shop, I use it almost every day. It is one of my best tool investments ever. It literally saves time and makes jobs much more enjoyable. It works great on motorcycles,ATV's Lgt's and just as a workbench

Charles, I went 46" on the bucket width, the depth is around 17" and the height is 16". I just went to Tractor Supply and bought the cylinders that looked close enough for what i wanted. The bucket dump is 10 stroke and bore is I think is 1 1/2. The lift cylinder is 8 stroke with the bore is the same.

John, long story short is a company my company was doing business with was going out of business. They owed my company lots of money and this is one the things that was taken for payment. I paid $200 to the whole thing. Best impulsive buy ever. I even got the motorcycle attachment as well. You wont regret getting one. I will now always have some sort of table/lift like this.

Nice job Dennis. From what I hear you should have about 400lbs on the back for weight. Have 310lbs on the back of my 314 with a Johnny Bucket. I like my Johnny Bucket Sr. but there times when a loader would be better for a job.
