Had a 2015 1025R with the old style backhoe, and traded it for a 2018 with the redesigned backhoe last summer.
The backhoe cart that I built for the older model was a little shy, but the new backhoe just did fit. I took it off and stored it. Haven't used it once.
The caveat? I forgot to put the pin in when I pushed it into the garage. In addition, and in true Dummy fashion, I pushed the hoe into storage backwards, with the hydraulics facing the back of the garage.
The bucket hydraulics lost enough pressure over the last month that the bucket fell off the cart, and is comfortably resting on my garage floor.
I'm planning on using the FEL, or a winch, to pull it back up an onto the cart, then pin it and strap it.
Question: Can I remove the bottom hose from the mast cylinder, show in the attachment, and maneuver everything back into place with damaging anything? If I get the hose off, I plan on wrapping a plastic bag around it to catch some fluid.
Thank you. I know I ask questions, then disappear. I go and do the things you all suggest, which I appreciate....
