    Your best bet is the operators manual for the particular loader. Removal/reinstall is generally the same for most all but each has its own specific quirks. If you didn't get an op manual then a trip to the Kioti web site might help.

    Here are directions for a DK35 which is probably similar (see ~1:25 in the video):

    that is a CK35, somewhat different than a DK..
    The best advice I could give you is read the manuel. But in general terms.. Park if at all possible on concrete or asphalt. Do not remove loader on uneven ground. put bucket flat on the ground, shut off tractor. Place down the stands under the loader arms and lock into place. Remove large loader tower pins if you can, If you cannot remove them yet due to pressure on loader arms. don't worry, we will get them in a bit. Fire up the tractor and move loader lift slightly to unload pins so you can pull them out. Now that the pins are out, raise the loader arms until they come out of the lower pockets on the loader mounting tower, back up a few inches, but not too far as to put a strain on the hoses. Shut off tractor, and move loader joystick control in all directions multple times to remove pressure in hoses. get down on hands and knees on right side of tractor and unplug hydraulic quick connects and put clean plugs on the tractor side back into the female disconnects. Note the color bands on the connectors so that you can put the correct ones back together. Start tractor and move away from loader carefully. To reinstall, pull back into loader close enough to hook back up the hoses.turn off tractor.. Hook back up the hoses, making sure that you get the correct colors together and they are secure, pull on each one to make sure. Then start tractor, and move joystick to get the lower retainers into the loader tower pockets and the pin holes lines up. You will need to jiggle and "mess with" the joystick until you can slip the pins in. You will likely need to inch the tractor forward also to achieve this.. You must use common sense to not "wad up" or damage the stands. Raise the loader a bit when the pins are all back in, and then you can fold up the stands back under the loader arms.. You loader is ready for work. DO not attempt this on sloping soft ground. DO not attempt this with the bucket off. DO NOT get mashed or hurt.. DO USE your brain. good luck

    Sounds just like how to remove/reinstall the loader on our B7500 except that the hoses are easier to get to on the B7500...

    Pretty much... I believe they are all alike except the location of the hoses, and how the loader mount towers are built.. but still the same concept for all of them I think.
