    Default SC2450/ Had to remove rear tire to attach 3pt hitch.

    I have an SC 2450! This weekend I took off the backhoe and put on the 3pt. hitch. To do so, the directions said that I had to remove the the rear tire to insert the pin. I did that. Here is my question! Will I have to remove the tire again to reattach the backhoe?

    Thanks,
    Flounder

    I do not have to remove my tire to install the backhoe. I assume you mean the lower lift arms pivot pin? I un-thread the sway chain turnbuckles. Then I remove the lower lift arms by sliding the pin one way until it touches the tire, remove an arm, slide it the other way to remove the other arm. The pin stays in place. Hope that helps.

    I haven't tried it yet! Hopefully, this weekend I will. I just took the snowblower off and put the FEL back on. Will get the BH on if the weather cooperates here in the Buffalo area.

    I interchange my BH and 3ph attachments all the time without having to remove tire. For the INITIAL install of the 3ph you do have to remove the tire to get the pin in, but after that you're fine. Once installed the pin has enough left/right movement to get the 3ph arms on/off.

    I installed my TPH a couple of weeks ago. I will be taking it off and installing the BH and FEL for some other work I need to do and there is just enough room to take off the TPH without removing the rear wheel.
