Re: Question on hydraulic motors 12/31/2007 6:29:46 AM   (Total replies: 2)


I have the same setup on a 60“ king kutter.

The “crazy wheel“ was moved to the front and the loader pushes it from the back end. It pivots up and down in front of the loader and the front end is lifted with chains coming forward from the top of the QA plate

I gave up renting it because the customers don't know how to baby it and I was forever fixing it. Front wheel ripped off, bent, broken hub. deck bent and punctured. Just running it ...

Re: Question on hydraulic motors 1/3/2008 10:36:01 AM   (Total replies: 1)

I find it better to remove the blades and the holder from the gearbox. This way I don't disturb the blade bolts torque. I have never had a problem with the blade holder coming loose off the ...

Re: Has anyone made attach brackets for a backhoe? 10/20/2006 7:57:23 PM   (Total replies: 1)


I bought a 911 pro Deere hoe off a guy who used it on a big Cat skidsteer. The top stabilizer link on this setup was just a quick release 3rd (top ) link for a common tractor 3pt hitck.

It was strong enough and showed no signs or fatigue.

But I also agree that to fab up a set of the early style brakets would no be a problem. Start with a couple lengths of 3” by 3”  by 3/8” angle and a couple trailer balls  and you will be all ...

Any good hydraulic shop will be able to match up the cylinder packings, that on is no big deal. Those early models of deere where made by the company that now makes Mustang (owatanna,  sp?) so you may be able to source some parts there.

Also alot of chains, sprockets and such are available from suppliers like Browning, not sure how your brakes are designed, but if its a simple disc brake setup on a shaft some place, they may be able to help. If its a wet disc clutch pack then ...

You should be able to find another master cylinder and wheel cylinders that will work if the originals are no longer available. Brake shoes may be tougher to come by, but I'm sure something cold be made to work if needed. Still take the parts to a few auto parts shops, parts may be common off the shelf stuff. Failing that try Mustang and let us know how you make out.

Not sure if you have a service manual yet, but here is one anyway

No sorry, mine is missing that info too, Perhaps your dealer would be willing to provide those few pages.


Re: JCB Robot 12/24/2009 6:05:13 AM   (Total replies: 1)

They are not very commonbut I believe theyare a decent machine. The only bad thing for me would be you can't run tracks over the tires because the door is there on the left. 


Re: 743 controll valve spool seals 5/2/2012 7:36:11 PM   (Total replies: 1)

I just did a later 743 (not b series though)

It had a 4 spool (yes 4 ) monoblock valve, (Some had a greasen segmented valve) and was told the one I had was easier.

I had to remove the suction line from the pump, a smaller valve bolted to the side of the machine. The side cover between the tires. Then I could just get my hand in there to unhook the linkages and remove the boots around the spools.

You can leave the detents all assembled and slide the spool out the back ...

Re: Bobcat 773G Turbo Overheating 6/24/2009 5:57:28 PM   (Total replies: 0)

Glad to hear it was a minor problem, Mine is getting worse, going to try removing the sender from the tstat housing and just letting it dangle in the wind near the engine, perhaps glow plugs will still function near normal this way, if it gets a little heat from the motor. Putting a standard 2” temp guage back in the hole. When the stock guage shows hot pulling the trottle baack to a idle will drop the temp just about as fast as the revs come down. Almost like it is feeding back form ...
