Usually the lower part of the grill is cut out to allow a front mounted crankshaft driven hydraulic pump. At one time my dad had a smaller John Deere (8n size)with a loader which we removed a couple of times. It was not a quick-detachable loader. We removed the pivot pins and the lift cylinder pins where they mounted to the loader frame attached to the tractor, unhooked the hydraulic hoses and suspended it by hanging it from a tree branch with a notched board in the far side of the branch. It was a bit of a job to hook back up so it was only removed a couple of times. I suggested to my dad we could make a frame to hang it from but we found that as soon as we removed it we had a use for it. Now I have a larger John Deere with a quick detach loader and it has never been removed in the almost 20 years itís been here.
