Did you ever find out the make of loader?
It shares some similarities with the Chaaide 800tc but the arms and ram look different. To me it does not look like a Bray or a Weatherill either.

Have non reaction untill now.
It looks a bit like the Chaseside but it's a bit different.
Could be a homemade conversion with the layout from Chaseside.

The person who asked me had some reactions.
Some thought as Emiel that it was a Werklust, some say Allis Chalmers. One thought it was a Hendré made in Holland and one say's it's a Merten.
So a lot of answer and I can't find anything on the net and what I find has another setup for the loader arms. :(
Kind regards, Henk

It has to be in this thread somewhere, I've only read the first 16 pages so far.. https://www.maskinisten.net/viewtopic.p ... =5999&lv=0

This is the nearest I've got so far, although it's not the same http://www.maskinisten.net/images/post_ ... 3519f2.jpg

..and the loader geometry looks similar on this one (Matbro?) although everything else is different https://www.maskinisten.net/userpix/929_img_0487_1.jpg

You could be right about the Matbro. The construction could be changed a bit for heavier lifthing.
But I found symelair setups on other brands such as Weatherill.

Hi Henk,

I'm quite sure now it's a Hendre.

https://www.bouwmachinesvantoen.nl/mach ... 5f4tc1410/

These were made realy close to where I live, and their successor is still in business producing hq loaders and forestry equipment.

Emiel,

You could be right. :clap: There are a few differences between the two but a lot of things look the same. The hole in the frame, the hood and the cab basis for example.
