Loader is completely functional. Everything is hooked up and working. All hoses are held in place by simple zip-ties for right now. As you can see from the video is does a pretty decent job. I am very pleased with its performance. In the video I am just moving some piles of dirt that I removed from an old garden. I am using my turf tires and I have NO weight in the weight box. I obviously need weight as well as a lug tire. One thing I did notice is that I need power steering as my arms are paying the price. Please let me know what you think of the video and sorry for the quality as its the only camera I have.
