    Default Finally got a loader

    Today we took possession of our new articulating loader from Power Trac! I know it's not as cool and fancy as some other out there, but we felt it was a good machine for us. It's light weight coming in around 1300# and has a small footprint. We bought it with a grapple bucket and a light materials bucket and some loading ramps. We decided on this machine after talking to a tree company owner about a half hour north of us who owns several already and loves them. He's kind of in the same niche market as us so I'm hoping that the machine will work out for us as well as it did for him. I'm super excited so please don't bust on my too bad for buying on "off brand" machine. :cool: :cool: :cool:

    Man, that thing looks great!

    I could have a lot of fun on the farm with that!

    There's 40 attachments available. I'm sure you'd be available to find one or two to use on the farm.

    What's the specs on that beauty? capacity, lift height?

    Also what's the price, even a ballpark if you don't mind.

    Congratulations! My back feels better just looking at the pictures. If it was sitting on my trailer I'd probably be doing kart Wheels!

    Lift capacity is 800#. The lift height was the biggest down side in my opinion. It's only rated at 4`6".
    The cost was $11k delivered to WI from VA. That also includes the two buckets and ramps. We paid cash so we got a better deal than if we financed it. The cost was also a big factor but not the main factor in us deciding to buy this one. We were looking at many other name brand loaders and they all were $20k plus. That amount would have meant us taking out a loan.
