Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Even at the dealers the sledge hammer and driving pin is the way it is done unless the pin is frozen in its bore and then a hydraulic press is used after welding a grade 8 threaded rod to the pine and using a hollow center hydraulic ram. If you do the swap on a level surface and have no down pressure on the bucket pin connection, a well greased pin comes out fairly easy unless they are dry or there are burrs in the boss, bushing, or pin. Let me know if you need more help.
If you are frequently swapping buckets on the same machine it would be a good idea to install a quick connect coupler and your days of pin driving to swap attachments will be over on that machine.
