 What to do - front loader

Well, I need some advice. I have a YM1300 with a tiller. I have a small blade that I push snow with on the 3 point also. Last winter I made a front loader for it. It was a great project, and fun. But, being me, I over built it a bit. When I got it mounted, it worked perfectly, but I feel it's a bit much for a 2x4 tractor. So I took it off and put it on eBay. Would have sold it fast because of the low price, but freight costs killed every deal. I now have a chance to buy a YM1500 4x4 for $3500 delivered. I could put the loader on it and sell the set, however, I'm thinking that when I play with it a bit I'll want to keep it. Total of tractor and cost of loader is $4500. I could sell it for about $5500- $6000 if I wanted to. So, question is this: buy the tractor, make it a set, or try to sell the loader separate, local?

To me, I would never consider buying a shop made implement like a FEL if I could not see it and test it. It would seem selling local would be the best options. kt

I think you have a very small market of people willing to purchase a shopbuilt(homemade) loader while it has to be brand and model specific to fit as well.

My dad built one for a Farmall Super C. When cleaning up the estate, ended up selling the tractor, striping the cylinders and took the loader to the scrap iron yard.

Likely your homebilt loader is as strong or stronger than a store bought, but the liability issues of you selling it could wipe out all you have if someone gets hurt with it. Frank.

If you can get sued when a traveling salesman trips and falls in your yard you sure can get sued if the FEL you built damages a tractor (even if misused) or is involved in a personal injury. It stinks but that's the way it is today. People seek to blame everyone but themselves, and some sue just to make money.

OTOH, if you have the purchaser sign a liability release then you might be OK. But then there are lawyers who want money to write one up.

A very wealthy lawyer once told me:

"Anybody with fifty bucks and a map to the courthouse can sue anybody for anything."

And I will add that it makes no sense to make yourself an unnecessary target.

Even if the lawsuit is eventually ruled as frivolous, you will have to hire a lawyer @$250.00 an hour to get there.

I like YooperPetes advice on this matter......

Well, scrapping it really isn't an option for me. I'm checking with an attorney now, but I think a liability clause in the bill of sale signed by the buyer will do the trick.
