    That style loader will tip over easy on uneven ground. I'd keep looking.

    you could use some 3 point hitch attachments with this right because the front of it looks like a 3 point on a tractor all i would use it for is to stack logs and push wood chips and snow thats it no going up and down hills or any thing like that

    Think it's something that'll be a nightmare when it breaks.

    Note I said when, not "if".

    Could be a lot of things I haven't seen.... I just notice it was *similar* to some of the case loaders.

    And when I said 'highly modified' it's pretty obvious they changed/added a few things, so getting parts will be a bit different than just getting parts ;)

    Looks kind of like the old "swinger" brand loaders, but most of those don't have planetaries.

    I was going to mention it looked similar to a Swinger or maybe a Walden loader. I tipped a smaller Swinger on it's side digging some sod out just because one of the wheels went off the sod when I turned. It was kind of like slow motion and no damage was done but I was surprised how easy it tipped. I think a skid steer loader is a better option.

    You're definitely gonna want to put some counter weight on that thing if it doesn't have some already.
