well it finally arrived! This was the unit I won in the Extreme Dream competition. It's really a super nice unit. I'd like to express my extreme gratitude to New Holland and Turf Magazine for giving me this great award.

Here's one just like yours: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Holland-L218-Brand-New-/330765714133?pt=Skid_Steel_Loaders&hash=item4d032c42d5

yeah I thought it was worth a shot. I'm in the process of seeing what I'm going to have to pay in taxes on the retail value (37k) I tried loading out biggest dump truck with it and unfortuatnly it raises high enough to get over but wouldn't be able to fill it full... I was hoping it would then I'd sell my bobcat 2410 (what we currently use to load mulch with, and for all intents and purposes is a bulletproof tractor)

unfortuatnly between our 287, sk650s, 2410, th215 and several ag tractors I don't have a nich for this great little tractor in a business mindset. I told my wife I was going to list it last night becaus after driving it around the shop a little I was starting to tell myself "just keep it for you to play with" that's never a good plan.:hammerhead:

here's a youtube

btw this thing will fly in high gear, I've never had a 2-speed loader but it's unreal

You could hardly see the tires spin after it took off in 2 speed.

Btw: I'd stick 2 speed in your description...could make the deal for someone.

new holand is a nice machine if i had to trade my takeuchi for anything it would be a new holland

well it doesn't seem like anyone was interested in the unit, so I'm thinking I might sell my bobcat 2410 (maybe ebay people prefer old stuff?) and use the proceeds to get a high dump bucket (didn't know they existed) then I should be able to load mulch with it!

Ebay's not the best avenue for advertisement, imo. Craigslist seems better. The market is a bit dead right now...if you can wait till the fall I think you can get what you want for it.7666666666666

sorry...cat just jumped on the keyboard. Put an ad up in my neck of the woods on Craigslist and someone wouldn't think twice about driving down there to get it.
