I am in the process of building a shed. I was out in the beautiful 43 degree January 1st weather enjoying my loader. Here are a few pictures of 1556 #3 helping me move some trees that I cut out of the way of my shed. I cleared out this entire area with that little loader. The shed will be 16 x 24 with a 6' lean-to along the back of the shed. I can't wait.

If 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:

WOW! That is one nice loader!! Take good care of it!
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.

Ed, it is always nice to see that super-clean 1556. Is the loader powered by the hydrostatic or a separate pump?

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.
