Only leave the operator station once to disconnect the loader
John Deere loaders are easily removed and reinstalled on tractors without tools. The automatic mast latch (AML) parking system allows removing or attaching the loader to the tractor in minutes without the need for tools.
Easy and quick steps to disconnect the loader:
- Lower the loader to ground, turn tractor off and release hydraulic pressure from joystick
- Exit operator station
- Open / lower parking stands (both left and right)
- Turn the boom cylinder valve lever to the unlocked position
- Remove loader hydraulics
- Unlock the mast pins (both left and right) and then able to back away
Removing or parking the loader
To disconnect the loader, the bucket has to be flat on a stable ground (1). The operator has to place the bucket flat on the ground, turn off tractor and release hydraulic pressure from joystick. (2) Exit the operator station and (3) lower the self-adjustable parking stands on both sides of the loader. The self-adjustable parking stands allow the driver to park the loader on irregular terrain and still keep a good position relative to the mounting frame, to attach the loader correctly later on. The parking stands can be set without tools. (4) After lowering the parking stands, the hydraulic couplers on the right-hand side of the loader have to be removed and (5) the loader must be unlocked from the tractor mounting frames (both right and left side).
After these easy steps, the operator is ready to move the tractor.

Connecting the loader
Connecting the loader is fast and convenient thanks to the ramp design on the mounting frames and the AML equipped with a floating device. Only drive the tractor to bring the mounting frames inside the mast until the latching indicators are in lock position (visible from operator's station). Then the driver can lift up the parking stands, connect the hydraulic coupler for hydraulic and electric loader power to the tractor. Fast, intuitive and maintenance-free design, the loader connection and disconnection brings the tractor ready for any tasks.
