looking real good-i just built a 12x16 to store some toys in finished it about 2 months ago,since then bought more toys,man is it getting tight in there,good luck on your build,hope all goes good,kyle
Thanks, I will use it whenever I need to but will always take care of it. It will be a daily driver. I used it last week when it was warmer out. I was out there in the mud for about two hours and the tractor got so caked up with mud I had to break out the hose, turn on the water and completely wash it down. I could not leave all that mud freeze up on it for the winter months. This is my 1st loader project and I absolutely love that little loader. I hope to do a large frame loader on one of my 1886's someday.WOW! That is one nice loader!! Take good care of it!
Theres a separate pump from what I can see.Ed, it is always nice to see that super-clean 1556. Is the loader powered by the hydrostatic or a separate pump?
For all of us MTF junkies, we would like to see you start a thread of your shed build :thThumbsUIf it is OK when the shed is done I'll post a couple of pictures of it and of course I'll make sure there is a Bolens in the mix :Tractor2:
Yes there is an external pump. It is attached to the side rail off of the driver side of the tube frame. I had to make a bracket that would raise it up above the treadle pedal as this one originally came off of a 1050 where there was plenty of room. The pump is original and small. I'm very impressed at how much power that little pump has in relation to moving those lift cylinders.Theres a separate pump from what I can see.
I have lots of pics, need to figure out where to make the post.For all of us MTF junkies, we would like to see you start a thread of your shed build :thThumbsU
