As of today, with the completion of the 320lb concrete counterweight, the new loader is officially finished.

So I got to play a little bit, and got a little useful work done while I was at it. Cutting rich, fertile soil from down near my creek, and dumping it in a washed out rocky clay bare spot in my front yard.

The loader really worked great, easily meeting my hopes and expectations. And the counterweight performed its role very well too, allowing me to climb a fairly steep hill while having a bucket full to the top of damp dirt.

Lastly, I found out my tractor can do a new trick: Put the 3pt and counterweight all the way down, and put the bucket hard down, and all four wheels come up off the ground. Pretty cool! It should make putting on tire chains a real breeze.
