The L39 is rated for 2200 lbs in the bucket (2700 at the pins)- I havent seen anything to doubt that
It wont load a full skid of pavers like a full size skid but certainly handles its own with the smaller size skids (lift wise)
Its the backhoe that is the great equalizer
its a brute for its size -makes fast work on large stumps (within reason of course)
