Love Hydraulic Lift-Hitch
Jeff Szucs sent Barry an email regarding the Love Tractor Co. hydraulic lift for Jeeps, we didn’t have much (anything actually) to offer, but Jeff sure did…
Like the Newgren and Stratton lifts, the Love lift mounts underneath the bed leaving both the bed and tailgate intact and available for use. As Jeff points out in his email “a magazine ad claiming that the Love lift was in fact the original lift used by Willys in its Farm Jeep tests in 1946 (don’t know if this true, but Love Co. claimed it) and to show the working relationship with Willys a page from the Willys-Overland Equipment Book for the Love lift type and pull type harrow.”
Thanks to Jeff Szucs for all the information, the original pamphlet which shows the lift as well as installation instructions, and the original ad. Thanks again Jeff!
Love lifts are rare. We are always excited to hear of any find.
