 3pt Backhoe Removal and storage information needed

Hi,

I was able with the help of my dealer's rep to take off my B4672A Hoe off my B7610 tractor. (By playing with the stabilizers, Boom, Dipper and 3 pts).

What made me a bit wonder about them is that he didn't follow the instruction written in the documentation (he unhooked the bottom pins first and also took off the pins of the 3pt limiter Hitch) and it took almost 2 hours to take it off and back on..... which I believe it's not normal for someone who supposely knows how to do this.

But I have a question for medium to long term storage, since I plan on removing the hoe in the winter.

With the bucket on the ground and some pieces of wood under the other end of the Hoe (under the mainframe near the hydaulic oil tank) we kept the hoe at the level needed to put it back on the 3 PH.

My question is can anyone tell me what is the safest way to store it for around 4-5 months (since I know I cannot repy on Hydraulics that would be dangerous). Can I put the piece of wood under the bar that normally goes under the 3pt lower arms (3pt limiter hitch)? is it strong enough to hold the Hoe weight? If anyone has a picture on how the store it I would really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.

DC

I have a 4 point (sub-frame) hook up on my BH, but believe the principle is still the same. Dipper and boom control the top and the stabilizers control the lower--5-minute connect or disconnect. Get to know your BH first. The key is to know how to adjust the level of the hoe. I found, like most machines, the more time I spend with it and work it, the more the machine knows what I want it to do. I find a nice level place in one of my sheds to store my BH. I cover it with a tarp and place blocks under it to stabilize in case any of the hydraulic cylinders may "sink". Good luck.
