I own a 1957 445 Industrial. It's a real beast painted all orange, emblems and all. I'm thinking it's either a state or county rig. It has a self leveling loader with down pressure, PTO driven pump,and the biggest counter weight I've ever seen. On the left side of the platform,there's what looks like a 12 ton jack plumbed in, that goes up and down with the loader. Is this some kind of pressure release ?

sounds like it may be part of the "self leveling", my West Brickbuggy has a cylinder on the back plumbed into the system which keeps the forks level as it goes up and down

Thanks for your input. That's what the guys around here thought too. I bought this tractor to use the loader, but it turns out it's the rarest of the fleet with only 313 built in 1957. I love the thing, even tho it's been rode hard and put away wet a lot!

It's a gas model,runs like a top, starts anytime. That diesel must be pretty rare .
