Looks good.

For a third function, you could always plumb an import spool valve in series with your existing loader valve.

Grizz, what's the rating on your FEL?

That looks great. Is there anything you'd change now after using it a bit?

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.

I have no Idea what the loader is rated for, More than the tractor can handle, I guess, I would guess 700# but I wouldn't lift that much with it, As to changes, I would probably like to have had 16" pipe to start with, I am seriously considering a push off system that would let me get the load off at more lift, I think that I can just tee in a set of short cylinders to do that. Maybe have made the clam end of the cylinder mount longer for more clamp power, but that would mean more reinforcement and weight. If I make much of a change I will post them
