    I saw one exactly like that on the back of a flatbed the other night, almost put my mustang in the ditch trying to get a good look at it. It was a pretty neat looking little machine !

    I also looked at small loaders for snow removal. When the salesman old me the price of a small Deere was 60 grand, I thought that he was kidding me.

    I am now looking at small Chinese and can buy a container load of them for the same price. If I was in construction and can afford for machine to go down, I would try the Chinese machines. Unfortunately, for snow removal, it either works or you cry.....a LOT of crying.

    Sorry I didn't see your post for 6 months!
    Unfortunately my Waldon finally did get sold, but don't feel too bad since it was sold before your post even.
    Sure was a neat little loader if you have the use for that size. I sold it for around $4500. Nice running diesel.
    Ended up replacing it with an 1845 skid- more money, but works better in my situation.

    I'm in the market for a loader (possibly with backhoe). But my price range is $5k at most. I see these cheap tractors for sale often, but they sell right away. I'm just lookin g for something to use around my house and to clear snow. We get a lot out here.

    Thanks for any advice!

    244 cost

    I priced one the other day and it was 65 - 70 grand. That is a lot of money but the work they perform is unbeivable. I had a 244 rented and am now looking to buy one. I perfer the JD because the visiblity is alot better to the cutting edge. I have looked at a volvo case and cat and I didn't care for the visiblity. I also like the stero steering of the 244. I used on a project last year to install 12" water main along a busy state highway and it is big enough but not too big. I could travel down the road much faster than a skid steer but it is the same with as a large skid steer.

    I got an old articculeted Waldon 500 i use around the farm.
    Very handy little bugger,build like a brick sh"thouse.
    I replaced the engine with a GM 6.2 diesel and put a national stackable hydr pump ont.
    I also put 2 extra hydr valves on it to run a post hole auger and 10' wide 3 way snow blade
    Goes like the devil on smooth places but is a pain on uneven ground cause of the bouncing.

    I'm in the market for a small loader for my start up...I'd like to run a hydraulic mulcher off the front end for breaking trail,lot clearing...forest work. Ultimately, I wanna be able to tow logs out of the bush for milling purposes. Anyone with a decent idea,get back to me..

    A hydrostatic unit might work but you need at least a 100 HP engine and a extra 30/40 gal/min pump just to run a mulch head.
    I didn't think the miniloaders have that much HP or the hi flow hydr nor the cooling capasity for the hydr.

    Hi John,
    Not sure if your still looking, but I have a Waldon 5000, fully enclosed cab, heater, deutz diesel. All new rubber, runs great, needs a little paint, and what I think is some adjustment on the hydraulic systems. I recently purchased this to do the work and turn it over. Got the manuals for it too. Let me know if your interested.

    Hi Effinay, Are you still selling your Waldon 5000 loader. Do you have any pictures.

    Just picked this up.. MultiTrac mini loader

    I just picked this 2002 MultiTrac up for $3200, it has 600hrs, 42 hp YanMar 4 banger, it need a seat and engine cover.
    Features 31 x 15.5 turf tires so lawns are not an issue, skid steer quick attach bucket system, plumbed to run graple, auger, broom and has extending bucket arms. I've never seen one before and at this price figure I'll give it a shot, I've always used Case 1840s and tired of getting beat up when working on hard surfaces.
    Just found out MultiTrac is now MultiOne out of Italy so I'm hoping the Canadian distributor can help me with manuals and parts.

    Looks like they have a huge variety of attachments.
