Re: Bobcat 753, Need help with replacing the driver's side hydraulic boom cylinder hoses 10/9/2014 9:36:37 AM   (Total replies: 1)

When I did the bucket tilt cylinder hoses that run up to the boom on my 440B, I ended up cutting the hard lines, as there was just no way in h*ll that you could get to the connections with any sort of wrench, crows foot or otherwise, let alone turn said wrench.

I then spliced the tubes back together with a pair of hydraulic compression unions.  Worked out great!

Re: bobcat 530 hydraulic fluid leaking into bottom? 10/12/2014 10:12:48 AM   (Total replies: 1)
With a machine the age of yours, it could be a multitude of things. Like antfarmer says, you will need to clean up the mess in order to see where it is coming from. I typically use engine degreaser to soak it down, and then blast it clean with a pressure washer connected to the hot water tap. I believe that your machine predates the tilting cab design, so you will have to pull the seat out to get to the area that your after. Once it's clean, run the engine with the seat out. You should be ...

Wood Splitter in Action 10/8/2014 11:08:02 AM   (Total replies: 1)

I finally got some pictures and video of the splitter at work this past weekend.  If you go to my FB page “A Guy and a Skidsteer“, you can view the video.  “Like” my page while you are there too!!

I was splitting up some willow and hard maple for a neighbour on the weekend, with the splitter on the 440b.  Splitting progress is a little slower compared to the 773, but sure better than the alternatives!!

I think I may have answered part of my own question, they look to be made by Loegering.

Still would be interested in hearing opinions.

Thanks - SR

The Loegering manual makes no metion of removing any of the drive chains.  And we would want to revert to wheeled operation as necessary, so removing drive chains would be a pain.

Why do you think they need to be removed?  They are not OTT's.

Does anybody recognise these?:

They look like they are intended to bolt on in place of the wheels.  I personally have never seen such a set up before.

A friend of mine has a buddy that ...

Re: Auger drive for 743 10/8/2014 10:35:12 AM   (Total replies: 0)

What is your budget?

I was looking for a decent deal on a used auger drive a couple of years ago, and came up empty.  I ended up buying one of these new for about $1500:

The one that I have is the model 924H.  It has been pretty much bullet proof.


Re: t300 value 10/7/2014 2:22:34 PM   (Total replies: 0)

Are you talking $25,000 for just the machine or the entire package?

If it is the package, it may really depend on they types /conditions of the attachments.  You mentioned a mulching head - that is not a cheap attatchment.  What are some of the others?

Are all of the attachments ones that you would use or are you planning to sell some of them to recoup part of you investment?

Personally, I easily have more value tied up in my attachments ...

If it has one, you would be able to see the top of the filter canister sticking through lower right corner of the engine shrouding when you are looking in from the rear.  Ours had one.

I would seriously consider adding the kit if it were mine.  The Kohler needs as much help as it can get!!
