I was wondering if I could take the loader off of my BX23S with the bucket removed. I am planning on using the quick attach for the snowplow if the snow is just a thin coating, and using my front-mounted snowblower for the heavier snowfalls. I have only had the front loader off once, and I had a difficult time getting it off and back on. I would read the manual, however, it was liberated at some time in the past, prior to my purchasing the tractor.

Not sure how you would be able to do it without the bucket as you need to use the curl function on the bucket to lift the arms out of the locks.

For my older JD750 I had a designated spot inside my shed for removing and storing my loader when not in use. It involved a rope and pulley system connected to a hand winch (think boat trailer winch) mounted nearby. I didn't have to monkey with any stands or special procedures. Drive into the spot. Hook up the two lifting points to the loader posts. Unpin the loader and crank the loader arms up.

I may do the same with the kubota loader. It wouldn't matter what was on the loader's ssqa or if nothing was on it. But you do need to keep access to that loader spot open.
