    Unimogs come with a front bucket option... I wonder how much that Dodge will lift before the cash splits in two?

    He's tempting fate or suicidal... You couldn't get me under the bucket of that truck for any reason.

    Why? Visibility would be terrible. Not to mention the pickup was never intended to be a loader. Future candidate for a darwin award.

    The guy that posted the pic said he was checking his oil. That dodge looks like its in mint condition!

    Nice, I think he's on to something. Put a plow on that mount and just think how high you could stack your piles. LOL

    We have a guy here in town with one! next time I see and I have my darn camera ill snap a few pics. I have always wondered exactly what they use it for? Loading trucks on site? How much do u think the entire setup weighs? You would think that he would need substantial ballast in the rear? Crazy dude I say, One crazy dude........really tho, what the heck would u need that for. Cant afford a skid and trailer, time saver, the truck is used specifically for one thing and thats it? I wanna chase down the guy in town and ask, buts hes a scary 400 lb biker dude that looks PO'ed all the time.

    No loader on this one, but a combination of the two could sure be interesting.

    It was at an auction i went to in Dryden, ON last fall, and think it brought about 2g's. The local rustspray place bought it for an advertising gimmick to park on the highway frontage. Cheaper than a billboard.

    If i recall, the rear half was a Farmall W6. Never did crawl under to see how he mated the two halves together. I don't think he ever actually used it to work, but drove it yearly in the antique tractor parade. Said it would do 40 mph easily, but didn't think the rearend would hold up for too long at sustained speed.

    I hope he has lock out pins some where on that loader. It wouldn't be pretty if he blew a hose.

    Crazy or ingenious, It's not the first, nor the last! I think the model A or T Ford tractor kits are the coolest home made tractor kits ever. Those sold like crazy back in the depression and before.
    I kind of like it! Then again I like the 4 cylinder Ford powered log splitter that my dad's neighbor has.

    I have a customer with a trailer made out of the front of model A or T, the engine in it has been converted to an air compressor, 2 cylinders run the engine, and the other 2 cylinders now pump air for the compressor, apparently works very well....
