    I emailed Artillian and they suggested that I'm lifting the loader too high when taking it off, but here's a picture ofe lifting it just until the latch latches, per the manual.

    Any ideas? Do I have something installed wrong?

    Thanks!

    You have everything right. The hoses are too short.
    I unhook the curl hoses before lifting the loader off the frame.

    Thank you. That's what I'll do then, was just making sure I didn't have something wrong.

    They definitely could be longer. I also just unhooked them and got just enough to remove the loader. Lucky for me I do not see removing the loader. I actually ran as much of my lines in with the factory webbing. I was also able to drive forward a bit if needed during the removal process. After 1 1/2 years of owning a 1025/2025 this is the first time Iíve ever removed the loader.

    Tim- I noticed how short your electrical was and you needed 3Ē or so more. Maybe they heard you as the electrical for my 2025 was long enough to go from the handle to the peddle,back to the handle, and probably back to the peddle again. I didnít really test that but pretty sure itís that long.

    Also, After a year has there been any problems or do you wish you wouldnít have ran the electrical through that boot? I hooked my diverted up on my 2018 2025r and I ran the electrical around the boot for the time being. My tractor stays inside and out the rain 95% of the time. Iím just a little hesitant going through the boot. Have you done any work in the rain and checked under that boot? Or does it actually seal up good? Maybe it doesnít matter if those parts get water on them? I have no idea. Iím trying to see if there is any other route before I make a final decision.

    I noticed you had some nice rubber tape. Either they donít send that anymore or I misplaced mine. I think they may send that tape to go around the loader stick where you put the push button. Or maybe itís for that and some wire connections?

    Great video also Tim. I can see where installing all that can be over whelming with the instructions. When itís all really a pretty simple install. My biggest complaint is black and white instructions and not enough pictures

    Ok, full confession. They provided PLENTY of electrical wire. I had set an extension cable aside, and apparently forgot it. I called them about it several days later to complain...they said, like you, that the cable should be PLENTY long...and gently encouraged me to make sure I had used the extension cable. Duh!

    Yes, happy with running the cable through the boot. In fact, just removed it yesterday..used some WD40 to allow it to pass more easily through the boot for removal. No regrets on that...in fact, I can't imagine it hanging outside of the boot.
    No worries about the parts under the boot. They get wet and nasty anyway from the tires below.
    The switch itself which is on the joystick...I'm not sure it would be totally rain proof.

    I removed the diverter because Johnny is finding a new home...being replaced by a newer 2018 Johnny.

    I can't remember anything about the rubber tape...other than I found some when I removed...I had used it below the floorboard where the wire crossed the frame. ...it worked perfectly, no damage to the wire at all.

    We're working on getting those hoses a bit longer. In fact, I thought they had already started shipping longer hoses. I will check on that.

    Ha! all good


    Awesome. Maybe Iíll just go throgh the boot then. It was the the hydrolics I was worried about. If you move the boot to the side You can see how it all moves and what Iím talking about. Iím sure rain canít hurt it. I was just curious.

    They may have made the hoses longer. Hard to see from the pictures I posted but I ran my lines inside the factory jd webbing so Its all a bit tighter. If I hadnít done that it would Possibly be looser. So no worries on my part. I ordered mine November 19th

    I thought the hoses for my 3520 were a tad short too. They work fine though, I'm just careful when I'm backing away from the FEL if I'm taking it off. I did talk to Chris about it (before Artillian was sold to Curtis) and he had made the hoses the length they were on purpose and he had a reason that they were the length they were. I don't remember the reason, but it's turned out not to be anything that I've paid too much attention to since I installed the diverter.

    Glad you installed this yourself instead of having the dealer do it, LGM! I told you it was simple!

    I ended up getting longer hoses. I just didn't like the tension mine were under.
