OUR NEW PIN-ON MINI PAYLOADER IS READY! This attachment is designed with a self-leveling bucket, a feature that distinguishes it from our mid-mount front-end loader design. We call this payloader “pin-on” because it’s a cinch to mount or dismount on your John Deere tractor’s front quick-attach implement brackets. We call it a “mini payloader” because it has a single boom lift cylinder and a single bucket cylinder connected to the self-leveling bucket linkage. This allows very high angles of rotation for bucket curl and dump. Get started today with Pin-on Mini Payloader Plans.

Right now, I am building a second Mini Payloader that should be ready for sale later this year. I’m also designing a small trailer for use around the yard that has a “walking beam” suspension. It has four wheels, hydraulic dump linkage and a carrying capacity of around 1000 pounds (450 kg).
