    I am about to ask a crazy question I know, but hear me out. :D

    I was driving one day and looked at a site being leveled for a grain bin pad and I saw a 8 yard pull dolly pan scraper being pulled by a front end wheel loader. yes you hear me a wheel loader. It looked like the wheel loader was set up with rear hydraulics. I pulled over to see how this set up worked and I was surprised to see that it actually worked well. Is this something that is feasible. It is the first time I have ever seen a front end loader attached to a pull scraper. So I kind of got to wondering if this setup would work rather than using a tractor. obviously it would only work on short hauls. I always thought a wheel loader was not designed to pull or drive distances. Something regarding the wheel drives and that they differ from tractors.

    Anyways, I am mostly curious to hear others input and if someone else has ever seen this. I should have snapped a picture, but it was a busy highway.

    I am looking forward to the responses
