I second the warning about supporting the FEL when working around or under it. Attached is a picture of simple prop I made out of a shaft collar, some 1 1/2" square tubing and a large flat washer. Also is a picture of a brush guard I made for my BX that comes off in just a few seconds with two pins.
I have watched a couple of your videos which are very good, but I cringe each time I see you working under a raised FEL, mostly because I had an old friend and a neighbor who were both killed by FELs crushing them.

Safety first, guy.

When winching, it’s best practice to throw a jacket, tarp, or other weight over the cable. Then if anything fails, the hook and other hardware does not become a missile.

I only have about 3 inches clearance between frame and loader stand if the loader goes below tractor level, as in digging. Does yours have more?

Good question. Kind of worthless if you cant drop the bucket down all the way. The video doesn't show the bucket down.
