No problem, I'm here to help.

Down behind the bucket, do you see two handles between the bucket and the loader frame?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The handles that secure the attachment? Yes
Mechanic: PAPA Chris, Technician replied 2 months ago

Yes. If your taking the attachments off then both handles must be up

Make sure the attachment is resting on the ground

It's a hydraulic jackhsmmer that l'm trying to hook up but the lines on the skid steer are pressurized l think

This video may help. If the engine is off simply push in on the lines and it will relieve the pressure

Sorry that was a C model which is different in that it has a bleed off switch

https://youtu.be/qvzNF27JJCY thos is the correct procedure for the D series.

I watched that video 10x but l just did it again and now it worked . Thx . I don't know how you did that!?I got it going
Mechanic: PAPA Chris, Technician replied 2 months ago

Fantastic. Please make sure when installing the attachment,  that the locks fully engage the mounting plate. Of not the attachment can come off and land in the cab with you.

Please let me know if i can further assist you.
