    If it is the IH Hough 50 it will have the same engine as the IH 806 tractor. That would give it an engine rating of 110 horse power. Power to the wheels would be 84 going off of the 806 tractor rating.

    I'm pretty sure all the John Deere wheel loaders were articulating in the center.

    No. This is a rigid frame loader. I don't recall John Deere ever producing a rigid frame front end loader.The 544, 644 etc were all articulated.

    It is definitely not a Deere and it has the look of a Hough (pronounced "huff")

    It's either a Hough H30 or H40.Ridgid frame,all wheel steer and they came in both gas and diesel versions.I ran one at a gravel bank,not a bad machine-you definitely knew at the end of the day that your arm muscles were shot.

    This thing should be able to handle a 12' pusher?

    How does huff sound like ''creepy old guy''?:laughing:

    That would be hue and yes,even with a gas engine,that loader can handle a 12' push box.

    How are these older loaders starting in the Cold temps? Is it a hassle?
