    Nice machine, looks to be in good shape.

    But I gotta ask, does she scream like an old skidder:D
    A local contractor had a 55A Michigan that was used to plow an apartment building in the middle of the night across from my house, and I will tell you she would rattle the windows, you would swear they were using an old International S8 skidder over there.

    The tire size is 14.00x24. And yes it does scream (Detroit 353), I found it a little annoying at first but I love it now. I think it helps to get people out of the way ! It loves to run wide open and when I'm backing up a busy part of a parking lot with the b/u alarm, strobe & the Detroit rattling windows I have everybody's attention. It has a Bose sound system but I usually wear noise cancelling headphones so I might be able to hear my grandchildren someday. I've had it about 8 years now and it absolutely never breaks down and only burns 2.5 GPH of diesel under load ! The 4 wheel steer turns amazingly tight and the brakes are super strong. The best thing about the machine is everytime it snows it generates more than what I paid for it ! The plan is to box in the ends of the 10' blade soon to make it a little more efficient. It detaches from the bucket in about two minutes. It's a good thing my girlfriend is hott or I'd leave her for this loader !!!

    Thats a good looking loader. I like seeing older equipment still out getting it done. A friend of mine runs a 1951 Case front loader. It still runs like a champ and rarely ever lets him down. I'll have to snap a few pics of it next time I have the cam with me.

    awsome old loader buddy. I could use that by me to start pushing back piles and hauling some white stuff away.
