I bought the Cheapest Loader in New Zealand – What could possibly go wrong??

I bought this old loader for the price of the wheels, they’re the same size as my grader wheels and in better condition.. Its always a gamble buying an old cheap machine like this.. Will it even start and get off the transport truck? will it make it up my 6km driveway?

  1. All the previous owner(s) needed was a 'roundtoit', and all those issues/problems could have been avoided.
    Anyway Mark you have gotten a 'roundtoit' now, so hopefully you can get more work and value from your purchase.

  2. Well, I thought: first stop cooling system fixed, second stop fueling system fixt. By the time you get home the rig has been renovated πŸ™‚ Love your video's, great stuff.

  3. Magic – what a testament to the toughness of these old engines that despite a lifetime's abuse, some diagnostics and tlc from a (very good) mechanic and…hey presto! Great video, thank you.

  4. Such patience I would of been ripping !😑take it back and drive it through the guys house .πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ΄σ §σ ’σ ³σ £σ ΄σ ΏπŸ‘πŸ»

  5. Make sure you put a roll cage on that bad boy before you use that thing. My grandfather had a Hough that was identical except it had a cab (no rollover protection), he loved that thing and ran it like crazy. Until one day he rolled it over a bank and it crushed him to death. Please fabricate a roll cage out of some 4x4x1/2” sq tube please they’re a death trap without them, and they’re old enough to grandfather in without needing a roll cage

  6. so where are the wheels coming from now ? lol. great videos Marty , a little tlc and anything can be made to run fine , ish . poor quad bike . oh maybe you could tell us where you got your wife from ? i love your fleet my kinda fleet oldies but goodies . i dont comment much but i watch all content and its very interesting and entertaining please keep them coming .

  7. Marty, that a great "ratchet breaker bar" you've got there – I must get myself one πŸ˜‰

  8. Some people are described as having a death wish. I feel like at this point you have a divorce wish bro 🀣

  9. This one should be a good workhorse, after some final examination. Looks like you've already sorted out most of the issues, right then and there. Good job, man πŸ‘

    Here in Finland,im starting my day, making late breakfast, and watching this video on the background πŸ˜‚

  10. great video thanks for sharing, i always say that as fer as the wife is concerned, its far easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.

  11. If machines could think, you are the best "daddy!" Am so glad you take such good care of our "kids!"

  12. Poomp poomp poomp….

  13. bought for tyres, bound for work, could it get any better, oh yes! searching for more tyres. I think wifey knows you well enough by now not to be too much trouble. great video, 6km travel, almost full rebuild, well done, you continue to amaze. thanks.

  14. "Bought it for the wheels"
    You know you're going to end up fixing it and keeping it πŸ˜›

  15. Do you pronounce it β€œHuff”? That’s how an owner I know pronounces it.
