    Telescopic loader for a tractor...

    Did any company make one?

    Has anyone seen a home made one? Think I remember seeing something about one in the Farmers Weekly inventions competition.

    I'm not looking for one - just wondering really.

    TIA.

    EDIT: B*gger wrong section. Perhaps a mod could move it?

    There was an article on this loader in Classic Tractor some time back. Get on to R Day on here, and he will fill in the details. I reckon it was mounted on an International tracor, can't recall the model.

    We had a couple of Quickie loaders years ago that you could extend the booms by shifting a few pins, handy for stacking straw.

    Funnily enough, this crossed my mind a few days ago.There was a company marketing them years ago now and I was wondering how many they sold and what became of the whole scheme.I shall rack my brains to remember who made them...

    That one in classic tractor was called a unitel or something like that. Had it's fair share of critics it seems. Not sure on the name. Someone might correct me.

    If we're thinking of the same one it mounted on the 3 pointlinkage on the rear and went up and over the cab roof.
    Seemed a good system at the time but expensive.
    I think it was French built and marketed around 10yrs ago but never seen it since and google cant track it down either.

    I remember seeing one in I think the FW machinery section many years ago,it was basically an extending teleporter boom fitted centrally with heavy loader type brackets.This one in particular was fitted to a Marshall tractor probably an 804.I'm fairly sure it was yellow.Never seemed to catch on,probably pricey lacked lift capacity ,poor visibility and presented access problems on most brands for servicing.Certainly didn't look too compatible with the Marshall as soon as you needed to refuel or check the coolant level.Probably just a "concept" and the Marshall had a short bonnet which suited the Geometry.Can anyone else remember it or even better fish out a picture.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    Don't remember seeing any myself as telehandlers had already taken off big style by the time I was reading the farming press. (I'm 22)

    Would be very interested to see some pics of the machines mentioned. Google image search has so far not turned up anything for me.

    Cheers.

    No bother. I can't recall. Was looking through most of my collection of ct mags looking for some info for a college project and remembered flicking past the article on that. Could be an issue from 2009 I think.

    I had one on demo in the mid 80s some time attached to a JD 2140 if I remember correctly. Probably not the best tractor to try it out on with hindsight, I seem to remember problems with the door on the SG2 cab. I also recall the high pivot point wasn't great for stability and also it weighed a great deal more than a conventional loader. In short, I believe Satan was somewhere involved in its design, perhaps in an advisory capacity. We bought a Matbro Teleram in the end with the Clark soft shift transmission. Probably the best telehandler ever.

    You're thinking of the Telebras LTB270 made by Lamy. Gone the way of the dod I think as its not on the Lamy website! I've got a pdf catalogue with it in it though.

    Theres one attached to a Renault for sale on Agriaffaires-

    Oakley's of Shifnal/Shrewsbury had one for demo mounted on a Ford 7610 with AP ( PIG) cab around the same time, we tried it but it wasn't for the faint hearted and I agree with all your comments.

    Yep no doubt.

    Take it that no-one made one on the same principle as the Collins Tele-shift then?

    How could anyone possibly think that this was a good idea?

    C on B none of those contraptions look useful. The vision on the 595 would be terrible. Look at the height of the boom pivot on the ol MF 2000. and it surely must have to go a very secure frame to chassis?

    Emmm,good vision,good weight balance,can go on any tractor in minutes and..... oh !!! its telescopic.

    Why would the pivot height have an influence on stability?
    Surely its the point its married to the host machine i.e 3 point linkage,thats makes it stable or not and seeing as this is attached to the tractor lower than any other loader I've ever seen surely makes more stable than others

    C of G must have moved upwards a fair bit on the 2000. Surely that cannot be simply mounted on the 3 pt?

    ...only front wheel steer on a big tractor with a crap clock, really high so can't get in anywhere the combine won't go, long, heavy, need xray eyes to see through the bonnet, no glass in the room, no FOPS on the tractor.

    Why don't loader tractors have to have FOPS?
