 loader position parked

Greetings all,
Winter has brought this question to my mind again. I keep the Cub in the garage all the time, but in the winter, I have the blower in the front of stall. I usually use blade and loader unless big snow. When I have the blade on the back, I have to drive straight in and raise loader above blower and park it. Is it hard on cylinders to leave loader raised when not in use? Also when I park tractor with loader down is it better to take all pressure off after tractor is shut down? Any thoughts on these two questions would be appreciated.
Regards
PJ Drew

Any thoughts? Well, I'll give you my thoughts, although you can consider them purely personal opinion. I never park my tractor and leave a 3-point implement or the front end loader in the air. I drop everything on the floor, and after I shut off the engine, I move the joystick around on the front end loader to release any pressure. Maybe it's not necessary, but I prefer to do that. IF I had to leave the front end loader up, I'd put some kind of brace or support under it and lower it onto that. Now let's see what others have to say on the topic.

In general safety dicates that you place the bucket and any implement down. You never know when kids might play with the equipment and a child could get caught under the implement.
Living in the back woods and being interested in equipment, I can't tell you how many times I lowered the backhoe, playing with the controls. About the worst thing I did was start a Michigan Loader. My dad found us with the loader running and not knowing how to shut it off. If we had of touched the wrong thing!!! Another era. Needless to say I had trouble sitting down for a while.
Apart from that risk. I normally curl the bucket and place it down all the way. This is to prevent corrosion on the chromed cylinders. Being from the west coast on the ocean I have seen them severly pitted from the salt spray. Road salt will do the same I suspect although would take longer as it is not 12 months of the year.

If you must leave the loader "up" to clear the snowblower, it will be necessary to hold it up some way. If you just leave it up, it will eventually drift down onto the snowblower. This is normal for all loaders due to internal leakage in the cylinders and valves. If you notice loaders being displayed with the boom raised at trade shows, fairs, or on dealer lots, there will be "locks" installed on each extended boom cylinder to prevent accidental dropping of the boom. They are usually simple metal channels that are placed over the extended rods and secured in place with "quick-release" pins that "capture" the rod. You can have these fabricated or maybe do it yourself. The only thing you have to decide is how high you want the loader to be to clear your blower. Then measure the lengths of the exposed rods for this elevation and make the channels that long. You also will have to determine how "deep" to make the channels to provide for the holes for the quick-release pins. The width of the insides of the channels is just slightly larger than the diameter of the cylinder rods. Good Luck and Be Safe.

I like the lock idea or stands possibly. I should clarify this is a rare occurance rather than the norm. I usually leave blade outside but if its late and Ive been pushing snow all night and will have to in the morning again I'll leave blade on and then I run into problem. The other option is just remove the blade everytime which is not really a big deal. Thanks for the thoughts. The good news is only one snow storm so far this year. PJ Drew

I sort of chuckled at myself several years ago about the same subject. One arrangement of implements in the shed also left me with either not closing the door or putting the loader over the snow blower.

I left the loader up for several days and had the same questions. I realize that I put myself in a position where the loader would eventually settle on the blower and hook it. If that happened and the tractor wouldn't start, I couldn't pull it out of the shed without jacking up the loader first. I decided that would be a pretty silly thing to happen.

I guess I was going 'whole-hog' because I also left the 3ph up with a 650 lbs. fork lift on it. There are the safety issues others noted. Anyway, I had to take the tractor down the highway to move a shed for the township with the forklift. The weather was cold, and the weight plus cold temperature left the tires seriously out-of round. They didn't become like tires till I was nearly at the town hall. In road gear, it was sort of like riding a horse with a bad gate. Decided I didn't want to do that any more and rearranged the shed. Can't remember if I experimented with doing S-curves on the highway to see if I could find a better gate for the tractor. Guess that would have been pretty silly as well.

Guess that's 'gait' rather than 'gate.' Oh well, some things in my life I've dealt with literately and some things verbally. Now, if I wrote about using a 'pig gate' help get a runaway sow and piglets back to the barn and wrote 'used a pig gait.' that would be more cause for concern.
