2000 gehl 4835. the pedal sticks sometimes you step on it and you get no reaction from the arms. step on it a lil harder and the arms studder. if you step on it just right it goes smooth. mostly the arm when goin to the up position.

Could there simply be dirt around the pedal causing it to stick? Hopefully its something simple. If its not, check your linkages from the pedal to the control block and make sure nothing is in the way. It could also be your detent, Bobcat have a float position when you push your toe all the way down the arms can go up and down with the contour of the ground, could it simply be this?

Your peddle pivots on a shaft and a bushing or bearing. Oil or grease might help. look for dirt or rocks binding things. Tazza has covered the rest in the post above.

im sry poor choice in words. it does not respond very well when you step on it with your heal using the pedals. operating pedals using your toe works fine.

Poor response sounds like it could be a linkane problem, check for excessive wear. If its really worn you don't get the travel at the spool for good quick response.
