Bobcat 773 Bucket won't move
Posted: 12/18/2009 05:28 PM
I have a Bobcat 773 Turbo. I went to use it today and the battery was dead. After a quick jump, it started right up. I was able to move the machine forward and reverse but the bucket will not tilt and the arms will not raise. The interlock lights will not come on. I checked the hydraulic fluid level, the coils, the fuses and the relays. Still nothing.. The snow is coming, I need help and quick!

I take this is a G series because it is a turbo model.

Hold the headlite switch to get the codes, maybe a defective coil on the bics valve that locks the hyd flow. Do the foot pedals move, because they have have lock solinoids as well as the bics valve that is a hydraulic flow lock.

If the battery voltage is still low after removing the cables then the interlock will not come on. The machine will seem to run perfectly fine but no hydraulic functions will work. Try checking battery charging gauge, it should show min 13v. If the gauge doesn’t work try reattaching the booster cables and then see if the interlock works. Perhaps your battery is totally shot or your alternator is not charging.
