Welcome aboard kylied and congrats on the new machine. They are nice aren't they
Chris is dead on. Theres alot of folks that use their FEL's and 2X's to gain more leverage to make it easier.
I, on the other hand, have learned not to use any additional implements to R&R the 60" MMM on my BX23. Course since I've never tried Chris' method so it could be a case of I just don't know what I'm missing
Taking the MMM off takes less than 5 minutes while putting it back on can take anywhere from 5 - 20 minutes depending upon how easily I can get the pto shaft splines lined back up
Basically, I raise the MMM to the top position then turn 3 of the gauge wheels 90 degrees to the sideways position. I don't turn the left rear as I've found I can roll the MMM just as easily with it staying in the normal position.
I then spin the depth wheel to the lowest position then drop the MMM to where it's supported via the gauge wheels and not the lift links.
I then disconnect the rear lift links by pulling back and locking the spring loaded locking pins in the open position, spin the depth wheel back to the Top position then raise the lift links up and out of the way.
I then unhook the front link and take it completely out of the tractor and lay it out of the way.
I then turn the steering wheel to point the front wheels all the way to the left and shut the engine down.
Having a concrete floor is a necessity btw.
I then start to roll the MMM out towards the right side of the tractor until the front anti scalp wheel almost contacts the right front wheel, then using my feet I push the MMM back on the right front side to clear the wheel then continue to push the MMM out until it clears the tractor. Sometimes it takes some back and forth adjustment to "wiggle" it out but all the pushing is done via my feet/legs just pushing the MMM in the direction I need it to go.
Reassembly is basically in the reverse of the above.
Your BX2660 may be similar but Kubota does make just enough mod's between the BX models to make it interesting
One thing on reinstall, I've found that as soon as I get the MMM centered back under the tractor and BEFORE I connect up the lift links/front links, I always connect the pto shaft 1st as it makes it easier to gain access to tha ttight area when you can manuver the MMM around to gain all the clearance you can get. It's especially important if you're "weight challenged" as I
Good luck and enjoy the machine. Use it inplace of your back
