IH 1000 loader removal

Postby CapeCodCubs » Wed Dec 02, 2020 9:28 pm

Hi,

Planning on removing the IH 1000 loader from my new lo boy to paint. I think I read somewhere the without the bucket the loader weighs 465 pounds or something like that and wondered how to remove it with two people and no machine. Any pictures or thoughts or links to threads on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Happy Holidays---
Chris

I lowered mine on some car dolly's and maneuvered it out from under the Tractor from the right side

Two of these would work also

make sure you have plenty of help

I have never done it, but would probably support it from a hoist (chainfall or a come-along) and roll the tractor out from under it.

I have not done a loboy just a standard cub. I do not have a concrete pad big enough to do this on so I am on the grass. With a standard cub I had a clearance issue with the boom down and front axle so check that. You may have to keep the boom up on skids or something. The first time I did it I took the bucket off thinking the lighter the better. But the loader is not very balanced and had a tendency to roll to the right. I would keep the bucket on.

The second time I did it, this spring, I rested the bucket on a hay wagon and moved the wagon to help move it and had it resting on plastic skids so the loader would slide. There is no easy way to do this unless you have a high ceiling and a gantry crane and can go up with it.

Hi Chris. Just remember when you remove the hydraulics, if you are, make sure you don't simply put plugs in the fittings or hoses. DEAD HEADING the system will make for a major headache. Unless you remove the bypass block completely, you'll need to install a jumper hose to prevent deadheading.

Thanks Folks,

I was going to make up another dolly, I have an old industrial one I use to split the Cubs. The price on the 2nd one is cheaper than I could buy the pieces and hardware.

No chain fall, this is happening outside and will lay plywood down and roll it.

Boom is up, hoses are shot and this is a $400 loader tractor that hasn't run in years. And the bucket is off, so will exercise caution and it would make sense it would want to roll to the right.

Good tips, supposed to rain this weekend, but if the weather breaks will give it a shot.

Thanks for the great advice and will tune back in with progress later!

Be careful. I like having a mattck / pick axe when doing a job like this. It is a great lever for liftinging and sliding heavy things. In high school, I was a ground man for heave equipment operators. You learn a move and lift pipe to get a sling under or backhoe bucket and whatever is heavy.

Saves back and fingers.

Yeah, I was just thinking about using leverage to lift and lower. I move a lot of very heavy cut granite blocks by hand and am good at moving heavy objects. Just double checking it can be done. I kind of was under the impression you needed a machine. Well there you go, confidence builder, thanks
