 723 loader

I need a favor from someone out there who has access to a 723 loader. Mine is 3 hours away from me right now and I need a measurement of the distance separating the two main lift arms at a point close to the bucket pivot point. The measurement doesn't have to be exact, possibly center to center with +- 1/2" accuracy (I just need clearance). I'm fabricating an attachment and measured everything but the separation distance.
Thanks, Dave

Thanks much for the measurement hornworm. I'm building a grapple and I didn't want the upper pinchers which will be fixed to a quick attach plate to hit the lower ones which will be mounted solidly to the loader lift arms. I just came in from doing all the welding. I hope it works as good this weekend as it does in my imagination. Smile

Dave

 723 loader

If anyone's interested I have posted some pix of my "poor man's grapple" on #1 and #2. It's a single purpose implement but in this case it only cost me $60 for some used steel. It's built from 5"x3" rectangular steel with 1/4" thickness. I spent one evening cutting out pieces (chop saw) and another evening welding them up and painting them. The lower arms are mounted solid to the FEL lift arms and the upper arms are bolted to a quick detach plate. With this geometry I should be able to pick up logs up to 24" diameter. My need for them is to pile spruce pulp and sawlogs from a 2-3 acre stand that I'm thinning. I was a bit worried about the strength of the butt welds all along the thing so I squeezed the log with all the loader had with no breakage. So far so good after 4 hours use.

If I had Murf's skidding tongs I wouldn't even have to get out of the tractor seat (see log skidding II). Smile

Oh yes, picture #3 shows yet another purpose for an FEL, no dragging. Laughing out loud

Your grapple looks like it is doing the job you need done. It sure is a unique design. Nice work!

Looking at those pic's saw that you have one of AMC's better offerings there. I have a friend with one that he shows quite a bit. He used to drive it but just shows it now.

Thanks Art, It's really still a project also. I have a stripped rust free body from Arizona up on a rotisserie. The inside, bottom and engine compartment are sandblasted and painted (Big Bad orange). I still have to paint the main body. I just finished rebuilding the engine (most everything new except the crank and rods). I think I should be able to get it on the road by this summer.

You do nice work shortmagnum! That is a pretty hefty size log it is holding so it obviously works well. I like that 6 point buck the bucket is holding. Indeed an excellent use for the FEL! Wink yeah right You have a beautiful place there.
