Yup, Like Dan said. I leave my Hydrolift in the float position when attaching and removing implements. I still have enough manly muscle to lift my attachments into my dump cart or wheelbarrow if I want to move them around the yard.;);)

first time i used a hammer, several prybars, and all those foreign words i learned in the Army to get the tiller out of the lift. a file in a drill cleaned up the lift and a touch with the grinder did for the 1" rod. a light coating of grease finished the job. (just enough grease to make the rod slide without making a mess of everything) now i either put a pin through the hole in the lift and the rod, or just in the lift so the rod bottoms out against it. this keeps the rod from going so deep in the lift that it jams and keeps it from moving so the belt stays tight.

Like the guys said...the 1st part off is the belt, then I pull the the 2 hitch pins then pull out the lift pin then the rod out with the lift down or in float. It should slide out easily... if not clean it up with a long strip of emery cloth. If you take it back down to a clean surface it shouldn't bind...^

Mine was conditioned as mentioned above and can be done now with one hand. Lifting and moving it if needed, in storage is another matter, but mounting and dismounting is simple. Took me two tilling seasons to catch on though...

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
