Longtime Farmer Raises the Bar in Tractor Productivity/Efficiency

Share Article

Larry Williams, a farmer for over fifty years, has invented the ExtendaLoader, a new tractor enhancement product that extends the reach of a tractor’s front-end loader by an immediately adjustable length of between two to four feet.

Larry Williams has recently conceived of the ExtendaLoader, a unique device that extends the reach of a front-end loader. The latter is a common addition to tractors, enabling them to load, carry and unload loose materials of various sorts. An owner of a hay supply business that operates six tractors, Mr. Williams is well aware of the extraordinary utility of the front-end loader for helping him and others transport hay in an efficacious manner.

However, Mr. Williams is also aware of the front-end loader’s limitations: Front-end loaders are often just a few feet short of reaching the desired load. So, just when the last row of hay is about to be picked up from a flatbed truck, for example, the front-end loader can’t reach it and one has to drive the tractor all the way around to finish unloading the hay. A lifelong tinkerer and creative thinker, Mr. Williams began thinking of how to extend the reach of a front-end loader in a manner that would be useful for the average tractor operator – on the field or even on a construction site.

As suggested by its name, Williams’ invention enables the tractor user to extend the reach of the front-end loader for improved efficiency and productivity. The ExtendaLoader is expressly designed to extend the reach of a front-end loader without compromising its structural stability or lifting capacity. In this manner, it enables the full gamut of tractor users – from farmers to those working on construction sites – to obtain that crucial extra few feet of reach when loading or unloading everything from hay to cartons to concrete blocks.

The invention is covered by two patents, one (pending) pertaining to the core extension functionality and the other (already issued) pertaining to an optional self-leveling mechanism whereby the loader’s bucket always stays level with the ground -- no matter how far out it extends or how high it elevates.

Presently, Mr. Williams and his business representative are communicating with various industry stakeholders about the time savings, cost savings and other benefits of this breakthrough innovation. If you or your organization would like to reach out to the ExtendaLoader camp, you may reach them through their new website, ExtendaLoader.com (http://www.extendaloader.com). As well, through that site, you can gain access to additional materials – including a brief animated product video.
