    No chinese loader is a good brand lol....they are cheap. Mine works so far....cab way too small...hydraulics and transmission come out of a w14 case era machine...it is like having a belarus tractor....they are crude and fairly tough...but no comfort at all....i would NEVER make this my front line machine...but for 4800 bucks at auction brand new.....it will make a good yard machine....maybe.....so far so good...it does lift very well....brakes work very well....only 2 speed....maxes out at 12 mph. Gauges are in mpa instead of psi...so useless lol...fuel tank and oil tank look the same with same cap...so can see new guys screwing that up...no air dryer on air brakes..can see that freezing...it goes on....so good quality is a stretch...will keep posted as hours go up...bit of good points so far...heavy built..quick hitch fits all my normal implements. Has hydraulics to rear..kinda cool to run things back there like jack hammer, hydraulic jacks...etc...visibility is quite good..transmission shuttle works well...engine (isuzu) starts and works well. Loader cycle time is quite fast...but at 21 hours reliability and durability is still in doubt.

    Shoot a picture of the engine while you are at it. I might recognize it or at least what it was copied from.

    Good idea, although you might have to flip the picture horizontally to see exactly how they copied it. ;)

    I have seen that before, intake, exhaust, injection pump, everything was opposites sides from the way I thought I remembered it.

    Looks a bit like an old Isuzu but can't put my finger on it. Definitely not like anything modern and Japanese.

    Birken, is on the right track...
    That's a TICS inj. pump made by Zexel for Isuzu.. & several diff. manuf. but Isuzu being the largest.

    Funny to see air brakes on a small modern loader.

    You can't go wrong at that price for a yard machine. When you eventually have a major failure you can just scrap it.
    I'm sure it won't be too long before the Chinese up their game and produce good quality and the sort of spec people really want rather than just cheap. I can remember when Japanese mini diggers came into the UK. Initially they were considered a bit of a joke. All of a sudden they got their act together and they couldn't import them fast enough.
