When it comes to all things vehicles, you do not want to delay on repairs. A small repair today, can become a much larger project if ignored. And at a certain rate, you would be better off trading in your vehicle than paying for the repairs and waiting for the work to get done. This is especially true with contractor equipment. Every day your Bobcat Skid Steer Loader is sitting in someone else’s repair shop is a day you can’t use it. So, catching a repair job early means less cost and less downtime. Here are a few common signs that your Bobcat Skid Steer Loader needs some work.
Issues With The Hydraulic Motors
The first thing you should be wary of are signs that your hydraulic motors have issues. There are a few key signs to look out for. First, any leaks from your Bobcat should be a sign for concern. Fluid leaks can quickly lead to problems that could eventually require you to need a brand new motor. Other obvious signs that your motor has issues are loud sounds or vibrations coming from your motor or if your skid steer loader has performance issues. Each of these signs could point to a problem with your motor and may require either repairs or replacement parts.
Issues With Powering Up
Another common sign that there is an issue with your Bobcat Skid Steer Loader is that there are problems with the engine. If your Bobcat Skid Steer Loader has issues powering up, performing routine tasks, or staying powered, this could be a sign of a variety of engine and motor problems. Once again, the earlier you can catch these problems the better.
Unequal Power Distribution
Another sign of an issue is if your Bobcat Skid Steer Loader drifts to one side or shows signs of unequal power distribution. This problem could be stemming from the hydraulic motor or could be caused by other damage. If you notice that your skid steer loader is not level when it lifts its load this could be a sign that it needs repairs.
