Howdy folks,
Some advise and help requested.
I want to remove the loader from the front so that I can tilt the cab and et to the the transmission.
Made a fixture that fits in the rectangular tube attachment under the loader.
Loosened the two bolts on the bottom.
I searched for a procedure in the manuals and on here ... post 102... but not specific.
With a 2-1/2 ton hydraulic floor jack I can not lift the loader of the attachment points. How heavy is this loader. Can it get that stuck?
It lifts the loader bucket an 1" of the ground.
How much does the mog comes up out of the suspension after the loader is removed.

Thanks
johan

The suspension comes up several inches at least. Mine did get stuck on the wedges at the bottom even with the bolts removed. I used a old chisel or pry bar to convince them to separate.

Wish I remembered how and with what I lifted mine.

May have used the trailer jack mount I incorporated into the stand, or it could've been with the crane. Either way, once the very stubborn bolts came off, the rest was easy.

Thank you all, will try with the loader from the other flu I have...
Had hoped that I could make it into a one person manual field procedure.
Outside of lip healed up well, still a pretty big boil on the inside.
Tooth has a little funny feel to it.

You can do it, Johan.
Just keep in mind that the lift should be from the vehicle end of the loader, not closer to the bucket. Those lower mounts aren't vertical, and even if they were, they'd fight back.
I probably used a strap on the uppermost tubing, not wanting to have anything in the rectangular receiver, since I needed that open to insert the stand once the loader was loose.

Since I reached the point where I could work the FLUs more than work on them, I haven't kept up with the threads like I should.

But if Johan gets that loader off (and lives to tell about it), then sells it to me, I could hopefully document whatever modifications it needs to accommodate the snow blower.

Yes, the current setup works, but I'd like to improve on it. Besides, it's fun to work on these things, and especially when you don't have to.

Thank you. That is enough to lift and lower the loader on / of the hooks of the mog? I will check the scrap yard tomorrow to see if something is laying around... ...ahh such a German Dutch environment... Love the pavers. Don't see them here very often.. Every time when I go back to the Netherlands I am surprised how organized and perfectly made everything is...... That of course has a good and a bad side.... Migginsbrothers..are you a transplant like Guy.. ..and myself?
