Charley,
Here is a scanned picture of an original sales brochure (I found on Ebay) showing the Wagner loader on my 1956 VAI. I wrote more info on this if you want flip back to our earlier post re: VAI wheel rim paint.

What scares me is that I was able to scan,copy, and post this picture without outside assistance or use of profanity.

Hi MJ. Thanks for the pictures. I like that Wagner loader with the step in design. The only Wagoner loaders I saw were mounted on the old Fords. That VAI looks like it has the 1952 and later front axle. Charley.

Hi Mike in Mo. If I could see your loader or a picture I probable could tell what it is. It sounds like you have the Lull. That is how they were made, all heavy, big flat steel. The rear of the frame mounts on the top of the rear axle housing. Two large lift cylinders and one big bucket cylinder mounted on top of the left loader boom arm and a big heavy steel plate in front of the grill with a front pump. A VAI has a load with just the loader. They were made in Minneapolis MN. They are still making construction equipment. The VAI had to have some mods done to it for that big loader. Hope this helps. Charley.

Hi Lou'ee. From what I have seen of pictures, your's is the Proffit. What are the front wheels on it, truck wheels, 16 inch? I have seen only one other picture of a VAI with those wheels. Maybe those were put on after the factory for heavy duty wheels. Charley.

Thanks Kestrel. That is a good looking loader. Sure lifts high. Looks like it is sized good for the tractor, not real heavy for a small tractor. Those Lull loaders are heavy, they luck bigger than the VAI. That tractor has the same front axle as mine. I see the rear rims are painted the same as the tractor. Mine are silverish. Good luck. Charley.
