Re: Bucket won't Curl and Tilt 7/29/2014 4:39:22 AM   (Total replies: 1)

Number of blinks is code.

1 blink valve output is disconnected

2 blinks valve output circuit is shorted to 12+

3 blinks valve output circuit is shorted to 12-  or ground disconnected


Most likely the solenoid valve coil is fried and will need to be replaced. As far as I know they are only available from a Bobcat dealer.

Sometimes it's wires that have rubbed or been chewed on by rodents.

It sounds like you have either a voltage or grounding problem to the BICS system for you to have that many errors. I'd start by checking the machine system voltage and clean the battery cables on both ends. Plus I'd find and clean as many of the ground wire connections as you can.

The normal output voltages from BICS to the coils is less than the machine system voltage so 2 blinks on the valve light means the BICS is seeing system voltage on that circuit for some ...

Re: Just bought a Bobcat 611 Please help 7/25/2014 3:49:21 PM   (Total replies: 1)

The 611 is a variable speed belt driven machine with clutches for steering. You'll need to make sure the drive belt sheaves are working properly first as that controls the travel speed. After you have that right it may need the clutches adjusted to make it turn correctly but most likely most of the problems are with the belt drive.

There are some member here that are more familiar with the 600 series machines than me and will likely be able to help you thru any problems.

Seems like I remember you had the same problem earlier this year. What did you do then to fix it?


Re: 843 - heavier vibration at max RPM 7/25/2014 3:38:52 PM   (Total replies: 0)
A 843 has a U-joint assembly that drives the pumps not a drive belt. I'd suspect that the U-joints are getting ready to come apart and that's the vibration you're feeling. If they do explode they will normally take a some expensive parts with them.

Re: S185 AHC Light on / 32-50 code 7/24/2014 4:55:58 AM   (Total replies: 1)

32-50 is Tilt Actuator Short To Ground

Most likely there's a wire rubbed and is shorting out.

The MEL-1192 filter wrench is just a metal band type that you can use a breaker bar with.

I know how it is living near a small town. It used to be almost all the stores here closed at noon on Saturday and didn't reopen till Monday morning but it's getting better as some stores have learned people will drive the 30-50 extra miles to get what they need on a weekend these days.

I was able to check the local Carquest inventory online because I have an account there and in a emergency I can call the owner to get a part after hours if they have it in ...

Sounds like a bad battery have you had it load tested?
