    Default BX2660 queston

    After the lift kit for the sweeper is attached to the front of the tractor, is it possible to reinstall the front end loader or does the lift kit have to be removed to put the loader back on the tractor. I was told that the lift kit could remain on the tractor with the loader installed but there does not seem to be enough clearance to clear the hydraulic cylinders of the kit and the cross member of the loader arms.

    For no more than what it takes, I'd pull the quick hitch. IIRC, there are the two "T" bolts up front and then two pins underneath, and then the hyd hoses that go to the loader valve. The hoses have to be disconnected to use the loader anyway. The pto is also a quick disconnect. Should be able to have everything off in 2 or 3 minutes. 5 max.....

    The dealer said that the QH weighed about 150 pounds and it was a 2 person job to get it off. Can the drive line from the front pto to the carrier bearing at the front of the tractor stay on the tractor. The dealer said that he thought it could.

    I just installed a quick hitch assembly on a BX25 last month and trust me, it DOESN'T take two people to install or remove it. I have installed then on B's and Grand L's, but this was my first BX. It is not that big of a job.

    Not at all! I did it myself and its a little heavy but I doubt it's more than 70 or 80 lbs. the dealer needs to go look at one of these before he gives advice. The quick hitch has to come off which means that the drive shafts have to come off.... Unless I am misunderstanding what you are asking.

    The dealer is right it is a 2 person job. These things are heavy. It takes one guy to disconnect and lift it off and one guy to hold the beers. I know I could not do it one handed with out spilling.
