Thanks. Yea, I bought it with the tractor but I think they are built by Kwick Way Mfg. That company builds all the loaders for John Deere, Cub Cadet, Simplicity garden tractors. You can actually see on the bucket where the orange paint has worn off and it's white underneath. You would not believe how much stuff I've moved with that little tractor. I've dug two ponds and probably moved a thousand yards of topsoil and clay, not to mention mulch, moving trees, loading and unloading equipment from trailers. It's really saved my back, which is funny because I just had back surgery on March 1. Needless to say, it get's used! I'll never be without a loader on something, but plan to keep this one for a long time. Like I said, the only drawback is the limited lift strength, but that's my fault because I really overload it all the time.
