    Fluid Film, PB Blaster, ATF/Acetone mixture. Spray the whole chain down and come back in a week. Or you can pull the chain off. I've never done it, but know it's possible.

    Fluid Film the thing and let it sit overnight.....FF is the best stuff.

    I hadn't taken the bucket off my skid steer for 3 years. The handles wouldn't even move. All it does is load salt so it was pretty rusted. It took me 4 days spraying FF but it came off. No damage at all.
    I would spray it with FF and let it sit. I spray all my salters with FF before I put them away.

    I intended to do that this spring, too......

    FF is the way to go. Spray, come back in a couple days, spray again. Give it a week, it should come right apart.
