What does everyone think about those Or-Bilt loaders. One cylinder raises and another cylinder dumps. There was one on E Bay that was fitted on a 316 JD garden tractor. Any thoughts-- good/ bad/ ......

They look real nice, however, I don't like how far forward the bucket is. It would seem that if you tried to lift a full bucket of dirt, the rear tires might come off the ground. You would certainly need a weight box behind the tractor. There might be an issue with the BGB casting cracking at the upper bolts, like the front end loaders had trouble with. Aside from that, I think you can find a used FEL attachment for the price he was asking.
