Never heard of a 520. If it is anything like a 720, should be a splined connection, so the motor should slide free of the connection, which sounds like it is stripped. Good luck and post some pictures. - SR

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 ...

Re: bobcat 440b control valve leak 5/14/2013 5:35:40 AM   (Total replies: 1)
You should not have to worry about detents with a 440B - they are very basic. Also, draining the reservoir is not absolutely necessary, as it is below the level of the control block. You will need to remove the control block from the machine to do the job. It is a bit of a fiddly job to remove the block, but it is not too bad. Depending on the age of your machine, it may use quad rings or v-rings. If you put your e-mail address in your profile, I can send you some documentation that should ...

I am assuming that you are also working on a 440b.  If so, that would be the control section for the boom lift. 

And you will need to pull the control block out.  There is just not enough room to do this job properly when it is in the machine. 

Once you have it on the bench and start tearing into it, ou will be glad you pulled it out.  Best of luck!!

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!

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!!
