Default 32 years of ownership Prentice log loader

after 32 years of ownership, numerous times moving it across the province of manitoba, i think it is time to get it up and working. but i lost the file folder in the DIEvorce so i have no idea on the measurements for the leggs, pump size or which way it gets mounted.

after spending a month working on 5 cats doing everything 5 times including making mistakes 5 times too. it is time to work on one of a kind project where thought is required and only making one mistake instead of 5 mistakes, lol.

You are the One, the Master of Procrastination. I am sure that is a world record....somewhere.
But I expect it will be black and fully functional soon, unless you run out of paint.

That loader was built about an hour away from here. We used to machine the booms for that company.

KoO, Sounds like a good parts source to me.

thansk guys, i did splash the black paint around in the dark with a flash light so pictures in the monring. yes i'll be needing parts because in 32 years things do go missing.

today it was air arc and do the welds on the stress cracks from being on anchored to a semi trailer and bounced down the track bed over loaded with railway ties. the dirt in the cracks did give me some problems but nothing fancy with the welds on this machine. plus i refuse to grind welds, the paint will make it look good, lol

Those welds don't need no grinding.
Or, those welds don't need grinding.
Or you could say those welds need no grinding.
What good would it do?

Joey, where do you get all this paint you're always slinging around?

cutter -- the paint is imported from 300kms in the south and is only on the store shelves in a limited quality like fine wine. i pick up paint everytime i go south to shop and when i have enough in stock then i take on a big paint project. also all my jigs and tools get painted with the spray cans because like the WD40 spray can you only get a 1/2 of a can before they don't spary any more. so if i got the spary can of paint going i'll have tools or something to spray just to use up the paint before it drys in the can.
i think on the 8 hours of welding on this log loader today i held the grinder for maybe 10 minutes the whole time combined. i use the air chesil to remove the slag from the air arc then weld. i just hate grinding and all my air arc and welds won't get any grinding if i can help it, lol.
