Re: (ET) Other lifts....

Great info Larry!

I was intrigued when I looked at the http://www.johnnyproducts.com/ 

I would be interested in ordering one for my new I-5 :)

Maybe we have a list member near Wisconsin that could help John Scheele
develop one that would fit the front of a E-12, E-15, E-20 and I-5 since
they all have the same front mount scheme.

I'll bet the front electric lift can lift the 200# load - too.

Anybody close to WI?  John Briese?

something that does perhaps half of what a real loader can do (i.e., it
can't lift anything very high) and costs $400.  Not cheap, but it may stir
someone.  I e-mailed them;
