 4300 backhoe hydraulics help needed

I have a new [12 hours] 4300 with loader, belly mower and backhoe. Taking off and putting on the loader and the backhoe is really a three minute job - almost. Access to the loader hydro connections is good and easy to work. But JD seems to have gone out of their way to hide the backhoe hydro connection, especially with the mower hydro connections. Does anyone have any tips on how to connect / disconnect the hydro connection with less that three hands? Thanks,Doug

If you are talking about reconnecting the hose to the power beyond connectionI've got a cut on my right arm that won't heal from connecting and disconnect-ing the hose. It seems to me that there is not enough room to get your handsunder the backhoe seat. I'm thinking about loosening the end of the hose atthe fitting and swiveling it around to the right so that the quick connect endwill be at a 90 degree angle instead of coming up from the bottom.I have a4300 w/430 loader & 47 hoe, collar shift(hard to get into gear transmission),with 18 hrs.

 4300 backhoe hydraulics help needed

I have a 4400 with 48 hoe. I too have had the enjoyment of ripping my hand when connecting the hydraulic hoses. My solution, though it added a wrench to the change over and two to three minutes, was to move the seat bracket from behind the hoe mount to infront. I had to reverse the mounting bolts. This gave me about 1 inch extra to fit my hand in. If I really want the space and make it easier I remove three of the bolts on the seat bracket and swing the seat out of the way. Though it it a pain to keep moving the bracket it allows my hands to fit in and switch between the hoe and the rocker arms hydraulics when needed.

 4300 backhoe hydraulics help needed:BH

When making the connections either taking the hoe on or off the easiest way to do it is stay in the tactor seat. Simply shut off the tractor, move your hydraulic levers to release pressure from the system, turn around and kneel on the seat, remove the hoses. I used to shut the tractor off and get down off the machine and struggle to remove the hoses from the ground and would cuss and swear until I got the hoses on or off. Once I learned about kneeling in the seat, I can actually take the hoe off or put on in two to three minutes without swearing.
