Located in Stamford, NY, Price is $1600
I have been talking with some of you about fitting the loader that I built for my 318, to my 1023e, and I've decided that I'd put it for sale here until I decide 100% to make it fit the 1023e or not..
Figured it'd be nice for someone to enjoy it on the kind of tractor it was made for... and I'll use the funds to offset the cost for a proper loader for my 1023e if it goes.
This loader has done a TON of work for me over the last 7 years. It has been the most helpful tool that I ever built for myself.
It has worked flawlessly for me since I built it in 2012.
It attaches "quickly" in a similar manner to the snowblower, except for it has 2 bolts instead of spring loaded pins (I felt this was more positive retention)
