Hi, I purchased a 743B. It does not come with an operations manual, I need this for capacities and oil types and weights, along with grease points. If I purchase a ($90) repair manual will this cover the operations part as well>? Also were do you get one of these manuals besides the bobcat dealer? Thanks.

e-bay has them. From memory the repair manual does have oil/coolant capacities but you really don't need to know these. Just fill it to the correct spot and your set. The oil that is used in the engine is standard diesel engine grade oil, i run 15W40 but it MUST be diesel engine grade as it has detergents to keep the engine clean. The hydraulics and chaincase, you can use the same oil but its a little more expensive, any car engine oil will work here, 10W30 15W40 20W50 will all work very well. Never use hydraulic oil, its too thin, it must be hydrostatic oil which is thicker.

I was wondering if I could get the list of filters for the 743B? Also, would you copy and sell me the manual?
The filters needed should be listed on the inside of the back door. Engine oil filter: 3974896 Hydraulic return filter: 6598903 Air filter, primary: 6598492 Air filter, secondary: 6598362 Fuel filter: 3885315 What I am going to do is cross them over to NAPA gold filters. Sorry, I will not copy and sell the manual, it is way too many pages.
