I recently acquired a JD 145 loader for use on a JD 2630. I see in the operator's manual for the loader that an accessory originally available for the loader was a "parking stand" to be used when removing and storing the loader. It looks as if it could be a useful tool ... has anyone any experience using this stand? Is it worth while for me to try and locate one?

Despite how useful it may look it is actually pretty much usless. The one on our 148 wasn't long enough to adequately get the base frames on each side to clear the steering arms on the 2950 we have it on and once it's off it will usually fall down because the stand isn't pinned solid it only uses a single pin on each side. We used to have another loader to lift it with a chain to get it on and off the tractor and set it on the ground when we take it off which is only when the tractor goes to the dealer shop in town. Probably haven't had it off 6 times in 20 years. It is a really good loader when it's on the tractor but miserable when you have to mount or remove it. I got a TA-26 Westendorf to replace our 148 when I get time to fit the brackets. Just as good a loader and on or off in 5 minutes unassisted. My suggestion is to make up something yourself that's better.

Evidently you must not have read the section of the operators manual that outlined correct use of the parking stand!!

The pin(parts key #12) was supposed to be inserted to lock stand in park position and arm (parts key #19) was supposed to be used so loader mast would clear frt axle while removal/replacement of loader on the tractor.

They are not worth the money they would cost now. You need two pieces like Tx Jim stated. Even then you had better be on perfectly flat , hard ground or they would drop the loader real fast. Even on concrete they where not the safest thing to use. They would slide and get real fun. JD got to sell a lot of hoods and side screen from guys using the factory stands.

I had a JD 145 on a JD 2630 that I had to take on and off all the time. It was my only utility tractor at the time. So it got used to plant, spray, and mow/bale hay.

I finally just built a small 'A' frame out of heavy lumber. Then used a chain hoist to actually lift it. That made it much easier and safer mounting the loader.

Jim, I had one of those things and even on a hard surface, they were as wobbly as a newborn colt. I guess they weren't as bad as they could have been, and even now it seems there could have been better designs. Most loader tractors in those days stayed loader tractors, and the loaders only rarely came off. The new ones aren't bad, but those things were kind of rickety at best.

WHOA please re-read my statement about the purpose of parts keys #12 & 19. Nowhere did I state that the parking stands on a JD 145 or 148 were better than sliced bread!!!!!!!!! Wink

We never could make it work, it wouldn't clear the steering arms. We have it on a 2950 which is a mannheim tractor and I think it probably would would work fine on a waterloo made model as the steering arms don't stick up as far. Bottom line is poor design, what they used on the 200 series loaders and later the 720 and 740 worked much better. I always liked it for loading feed and manure but the Westendorf we had on the other tractor when we had 2 loader tractors was much easier to mount and dismount.

Roll the bucket all the way forward and set it on the ground. Take out the four bolts on each side and unhook hoses. Lift loader up by hand and tilt it forward and back out. Took one off every morning and put back on every night for a few yrs. Oil the bolts up and hang a wrench on loader. Can have it off or on in a couple minutes.

Dave in TX, Are you saying that if the bucket is rolled fully forward, hoses detached, and the 8 mounting bolts are removed, the entire loader can be manually tilted up (forward) and it will sit balanced on the face (open) portion of the bucket without need for further support (unless I would want to brace or tie-up further for safety)? No need for a parking stand?

I call BS on this one. I know the post is old but sure would hate another person to try and take his advice like I did.
