Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I'd like to learn how to remove them for a couple of reasons, I think it would be a good thing to know. I may want to take it places where I don't need an excavator, and would like to eliminate the weight, and lower the center of gravity.Jim, it's been covered on the main (Owner's) thread in various forms over time. Yeah, it's a lot of reading, but aside from my posts, mostly very good info.
I'll counter with a question: Why would you want to remove the attachments??? It's a heck of a lot easier to remove and install cylinders when things are held in place by the FLU than propped up on the ground, I'd think.
Okay, so it sounds like what you'd really like us/me to do is to go through the main thread for you and then post the most relevant pages, saving you the trouble?I'd love to hear why someone might approach it a certain way, and why. Maybe learn the mistakes of others. First hand knowledge from multiple sources is far more valuable than a TM.
Ok, start sharing. Why should I take time out of my day to type up a procedure that you are too lazy to look in a TM. They exist for a reason.If this forum is not a means to share information between people with similar interests, what is it? Simply group masturbation for those who think they have know everything, and have all the answers?

Personally I do think this forum gets too wordy at times, but I take what I get when it’s free.
I'd like to learn how to remove the attachments while I work on the hydraulic cylinders.
Does anyone know where I can find this information?
A link would be very appreciated.
Check out this link to an index that Ron put together. Looks like there may be a few replies to piece together a clearer picture for you.

“Put the backhoe into a 3 point stance (2 outriggers and the bucket). Remove snap rings from the 2 top pins and bash them out. Use outriggers to make it easier. Unlatch two bottom locks (with the lever on the side of the truck). Disconnect hyd. hoses and join them together.. Block underneath the center so it wont sag. Join the hoses on the back of the truck as well.....enjoy FUN MODE!!“
