I just go this Mobility Big Dipper Loader for only $700 the guy i got it from said it needed the carb cleaned. I got it started but it only ran for a few seconds and then quit. I got it home, cleaned the carb and now it runs great.
I haven't had any problems yet. It holds great oil presser and doesn't smoke at all.
The little thing lifts over 2000lbs. I would like to get AG tires on it because it doesn't have any traction with the pickup tires.
But it does have NEW rear tires and one completely rebuilt tilt cylinder.
One thing that i didn't like was the gas tank was under the hood.
It made it impossible to put gas in it and if any gas was dumped it went down on the exhaust manifold.
I ended up putting the gas tank under the seat, there was plenty of room because under the seat was a weight box that was full of sand. It was also full of water due to lack of drain hole and it was starting to rust bad.
I got everything cleaned out and the gas tank installed. It's a lot easier to fill and a lot safer.
I am also going to inclose the cap for the winter, but that's another post.

Has anyone ever had experience with one of these?

With good deals? Occasionally they pass my way! Wink
Unfortunately I don't have any experience with that machine.
Congratulations on the new loader!

shouldn't be too hard to fix a hydraulic leak if you have one! It looks a bit crude, but I bet it will get work done right now!

Traction tires may help some but not a lot. Those were for the most part designed to scoop up loose material on a concrete surface like fertilizer at a plant. Never were good for traction.

If your not going to put the sand back under the seat then I would put some fluid in them tires, With 2000 lbs that high, I wouln't want to upset it.

I have two Massey Harris weights that weigh around 300lbs each, i am planing on setting one of them on the back, that's why i has the pipe out the back. Right now i am in the middle of inclosing the crash cab, i already have the windshield in and i am hoping to have the back window done this weekend. AG tires half to help, i know that these where not meant for digging and ect, but it does move piles of dirt well, and it drives just fine on rough/uneven ground. It also does good in loose dirt/sand ect, but tires with tread would help a LOT. I was going to put chains on it for now, but the tires are to close to the body and they wont fit.
