gene: this old film is about 9n's, but still has some old time comedy an pictures of old farm equipment.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_VCkAfXy7Y

if you can view it, at around 11 minutes the 9n is hooked to a rear mounted manure fork,

note: one of the rear mounted manure forks has come up for sale in my area, have been thinking about buying it for $50 bucks, just to say i had one.
guess it would not pickup much weight, but not everyone has one of the forks.

i too enjoy watching all these old films.

my latest purchase was this old MF bent tube double disc plow, not too many of them around, I had never seen one before. But, man this old plow can really roll the dirt, it will roll over or kick out most any rock or root.

Regarding the rear mounted loader you mentioned -

Quite a while back someone from FENA told me they were pretty rare. We had one at the farm that we were gonna sell for scrap. After I heard that we held on to the thing.

I still remember when we got the thing. It was a major step up from loading manure spreaders with a pitchfork.

Anyway if you have a chance to get one I wouldn't pass it up. I've never seen one yet at a farm show.

Come over and visit us, or better still come on our Ferguson bus trip this spring....you will see plenty of that equipment at Mike Thornes Coldridge collection in Devon, England.
A lot of this equipment is still around in collections, but most of the menfolk in the film are long gone!

Working around heavy equipment, and the way safety is pounded into your head I have to laugh at those old videos. Tractors running full tilt close to people with only manual brakes. No ROPS on the tractor running the roller, but yet it has guards over the drive belts. That rear mounted loader looked like a man killer as well. Things have sure changed.

How so? It looks as safe as any other loader to me.

Because of individual stupidness...we now have governments requiring expensive changes to all mechanical operations to make us smarter...right!

Guess I am wrong Boss hog, I must ask the manufactures at the tractor show next spring why they would stop making them that way, perhaps they will do a retro refit. I'm sure that they were a marvel of modern engineering back when you were a young man. Anyway I do like the video, It's neat to see my old baby when she was new..thanks for posting it.
