OK had snow blower on, wanted to use loader. took off snow blower and quick hitch, tried to put loader on leaving Mid PTO shaft and front bracket on the tractor. The stand tube for the loader hit the bottom of the bracket and would to allow the loader to click into place on the brackets...looks like taking about 1" of steel off the bottom of the bracket would give just enough room to get the loader to lock in place.
a) has anyone tried this? trimming the bracket?
b) not a good idea, don't be lazy and remove all snowblower parts before using loader
