Husky-Brute XL-200 Log Loader - By Dennis Raper

Dennis Raper built this Husky-Brute XL-200 log loader from scratch except for the engine which came off of a "Dollar Store" road grader. The loader is poseable in any position and all parts of it move and operate. The International truck cab and chassis are from Classic Metal Works with a lengthened frame and loader deck from K&S brass screen. The Stihl 044 chainsaw on the chassis deckplate is also scratchbuilt from styrene with wood and aluminum flashing.
