Re: 720 - Can't get axle out of housing 11/21/2014 9:16:18 AM   (Total replies: 1)
If you have an air hammer, try putting the pressure on it with the jacks and give it a couple of bursts in the center of the hub with the dullest chisel (grind one flat if necessary to keep it from digging in), that should free up anything stuck to the shaft further back. You can get a cheapo air hammer at Harbor Freight for $8 most of the time; I've had pretty good luck using them to free up stubborn stuff without tearing things up.

Shoot me an email (<< click on user name for link) and I'll send you a .pdf of the wiring diagram for the 700 series machines.

Re: Paint - RAL 9/2/2014 9:06:22 AM   (Total replies: 1)
I didn't see that orange listed in my Tiger Drylac book, but found it online and it does look close. Can't go wrong with the pure white but I think you might want 7026 for the gray. It's quite hard to tell on some of the close colors; where I worked we had acquired some metal cards that had the RAL colors on them so you could put them right up against what you wanted to match, really showed off how far off you could be just eyeballing a match in the book.

Re: Bobcat 700 vs 720 8/29/2014 8:21:54 AM   (Total replies: 0)
My 700 will roll fairly easy with the engine off, you can't use it as an anchor point. Not sure if it's just something worn excessively or if it's normal for this type. Mine also has the 8 lug axles.

Re: M700 25 micron filter 7/21/2014 10:55:43 AM   (Total replies: 1)

It looks just like an oversized oil filter, 5 inches across.  Here's what the mounting side looks like.
Grabbing it as close to the seam with a chain wrench would probably be the best way to get a really stuck one off.  The center thread is about an inch and a half, not sure if the pipe nipple will come out with the filter, I've seen it happen on some oil filters so be aware of that and anything that might be behind it.  More likely it's just a stuck rubber gasket that ...

Re: M-700 6/29/2014 8:49:34 AM   (Total replies: 1)
The B1932 does sound like a valid s/n for this model (at least a couple years newer than mine), but it shouldn't be necessary. There were 4 machines in this class that all took the same lift cylinders and the Bobcat part number for the repair kit is 6504959. If the counter people still used books instead of letting computers lead them by the nose they would have seen that right away. A good hydraulic shop can probably cross reference that as well.

Re: To replace or rebuild fan angle drive assembly? 3/3/2014 10:10:50 AM   (Total replies: 1)
At one time I saw Bobcat fan drives listed on Surplus Center. Just had a quick nose about and didn't see them, but I might have overlooked it. I can't imagine one would be that difficult to rebuild with just a few bucks worth of bearings and seals, if the housing isn't damaged. Found it in an old catalog, p/n 13-1422 for just under a hundred bucks. Bobcat p/n 6734104

Re: pallet fork extensions 12/21/2013 9:57:45 AM   (Total replies: 1)
I made a set of extended forks a while back; I was looking for C channel or 2x6 RT, but being cheap was just searching the scrapyards and online ads. Found some 7' 4x8 I beams for real cheap and wound up using them. They also had a couple chunks of .250x9" flat bar for boxing in the bottom and extending the tips a foot. Total material cost was only $40, so I was happy to compromise on the thicker cross section. These were meant to handle bulkier items that would be difficult to manage ...

Re: 763C occasionally losing prime 9/26/2013 10:58:29 AM   (Total replies: 0)
Isn't there a check valve in the primer bulb? I wonder if it has deteriorated a bit or has some debris that allows it to bleed off pressure. Agree that if the pickup tube was at fault it would show up while running, acting like an empty tank.

Re: Bobcat 722 Cage and Engine Door needed in Texas 10/12/2013 10:03:03 AM   (Total replies: 0)
They used the same ROPS on the 700, 720, 721 and 722 so that opens up a bigger market (the only differences in models is what powers them). There was a service bulletin requiring the addition of spacers to prevent the seat pan from hitting the elbows on top of the hydrostatic pump, so if you find one be sure to check the clearance there so you won't have problems later.
