Ahh, to have the first post!
I know a guy that works on bobcats that has also done a bit of work on a case machine. My question is, why do you need to get a case “expert” to bleed the system?
After the repairs were carried out on the machine he was told that he will have to get a service person to come out and bleed the hydraulic/hydrostatic system. How on earth is this so? if you blow a hose and some how drain all your oil you need to get a service person out to remove the air from the system? it just seems like a money making scheme to me or am i wrong? do they indeed have to be bled correctly?

I have had case machines for 25 years and have never had to bleed the hydraulic system

Pissibly a way for them to get a little more money from him...
I repair lots of case skidsteers , never had to bleed hyd systems , the only ones that you have problems with are the early bobcats.
