Hi everyone I am new to this forum. I have an 763 Bobcat which I just purchased a 02 S250. I love this new machine lots more power and and hydraulics. There is one problem that bothers me. This S250 has strong hydraulics the only problem is that when turning in either directions it makes a nosie which sounds like a hyrdaulic wine and its's loud. At low rpms and high rpms the nosie doen't get any louder and stays the same. Should I be worried and if so what would it be. Oh yeah it has cab air and heat w the sound proof package and standing outside the machine right beside it you can not here the noise and if anyone is loooking for a 763 I have one.

My s300's make a lot of noise but mostly at lower rpms. How many hours? Maybe it hasn't loosened up yet but should have. These are tight machines. Do you have the deutz in that early model or a kubota?

I haven't check the motor brand yet and it has 1900 hours on it. Also it came with brand new tires and I did notice if you are on gravel (where the tire slide alot easier) it doesn't make that much nosie.

It's normal to get noise from the motors when the machine is under load especially turning on concrete or any hard surface. Make sure the revs are up too, it will growl if the revs are low.
It sounds totally normal to me.

The more I drive it, I think there's no problem with it. It's just annoying though. Thanks guys
