Mine goes in a corner of my shop building. I take it on/off frequently during the spring/summer/fall. The Kubota hardly moves all winter, so I just leave it on.

Took it off and back on and then off again, no issues. The dolly is only 3" off the cement floor.

No issues with breaking the dolly?

I have tried the HF dollies and ended up snapping them trying to remove the loader.

This year will be the first winter the loader is not attached because of my new snowblower. Previously I kept the loader on and used a bucket plow for snow…was a good system except for the growing windrows and having to push them back after a big snowfall. I am leaving the loader outside on a concrete slab made just for the implements. Sprayed all non painted surfaces with fluid film… besides, these things are kept outdoors all year long on dealer lots so not too worried about it.

Fluid film is a lubricant as well as a rust inhibitor. It is sprayed on the under carriage of cars up here in Maine to prevent road salt from rusting them.

I get it and use it on my snowblower.

My question came with the highlighted statement of applying it to the NON PAINTED surfaces.

So…what is your question? I didn't highlight my FF statement by the way…don’t know how it became highlighted…
I highlighted it.

Why did you apply it to the NON painted surfaces and not the PAINTED surfaces?

I have tried the HF dollies and ended up snapping them trying to remove the loader.
No issues. I used 4 dollies, they claim they are rated for 1000#, but I doubt it. Rolled the loader on the dollies out of one side of the garage and across the cement driveway to the other side today without any issues. I have a garage with two 16'x8' overhead doors and a center divided wall, two cars on one side and woodworking shop and tractor on the other for this winter until I get my outbuilding built next spring.
