Bobcat coolant replacement
Posted: 01/05/2012 04:20 AM
Hi folks- My 773 calls for propylene glycol coolant only. I got some prestone ' low tox ' the other day and was wondering if that is safe to use. The ingredients say propylene glycol, but it is not the bobcat brand fluid. Nearest Bobcat store is an hour and a half away. Any thoughts? Thanks!

The Prestone Low Tox will work just fine.

Thanks old machinist. I think you sent me a link to a manual for this machine once. Could you do that again? Many thanks! 2001 773 turbo serial # 519016082

Sierra or Prestone Low Tox are both polypropylene gylcol. Unsure why Bobcat would specify that. The more important thing (to the engine) is the additive package (OAT, HOAT, etc) not the base.
