Finally a Loader Tractor

Recommended Posts

Heres a few pics of the loader that got me hooked on this "hobby". I bought the L-10 loader on a home built tractor about 23 years ago. After this site came up, and I found it and I finally realized what kind of tractor the loader should have been mounted to all along. I picked up this 110 to mount the loader. It still needs some tweeking, but it runs and works. Its actually a 116 right now. 16hp transplant, and added hydro lift. I added the stack muffler and support. Running Skid steer type rear lugs, I'll see how they work out. YOu can't see it, but I added the thrust bearings to the "king pins" and also rebushed the front axle pivot bolt. Instead of a weight box, I made a bracket for suitcase weights.

I wanted to make sure the exhaust was out of my face. Low hanging branches are not much of a problem at my place. I have plenty of chainsaws and trimmers :D

Yea I know, the green has got to go. But remember I have been looking at it longer than you all have :D There are various colors, and bare metal that need dealt with this summer. I still need to tweak a few things, got to make floorboards (Not Running boards;))for between the sub frame and tractor frame. I do have some diamond plate, but then I also have a set of running boards from the 7013 I parted. Last summer I picked up a rough L-12, bad valve and cylinders, time to start referbing that to swap out the trip dump. Tried to figure out an easy way to reset the bucket, I guess I'll get the hand of it sometime. Any tricks to re-latch the bucket? As to the Johnny Bucket, right now it is on the top storage shelf. I used it last summer on the 917H, so it might stay around a little longer. With the Slopes at my place, it would be nice to have a low center of gravity bucket to run the compost up from near the creek.

Nice set-up and I like the weight rack dOd Since I just bought a hydro unit for mine last week, I was wondering if that had enough fluid capacity and/or force to operate a loader; or does it have it's own pump and reservoir ? Also, once I put mine on, what fluid do you guys use ? Now I just have to decide if I should put it on the 64 LL or the 69 3112 (now a 3116)...Any thoughts? Thanks for any help you can provide.

The story behind it, bought it as a pile of parts from a buddy who was moving to New York. Had to extend the pipe based frame, welded the jeep axle in place, dimond plate deck. I had a Wisconsin AEH single cylinder, Rockford In/out wet clutch, a Chevy dump truck trans, with a PTO off the side, chain drive to a drive shaft I have to fabricate. It did have hydraulic brakes, used a VW bus master cycinders to drive each Jeep wheel cylinder. What a beast, at this house we did not have a place to store it inside. So it sat out, was always hard to start, I would have to pull the magneto, spin it with a drill real fast to get it to spark, then reinstall. The neighbors all thought I was a littlesm00. When I found this site, long ago, the homebuilt was destined for the pile of parts I started with. What I did not sell, went for scrap. The Father-inlaw still has the rear tires. I still have the 94 Cherokee that is in the second picture for size comparisions.
