Why Is Your Bobcat Not Starting

First things first, you will want to check on what model and brand your skid steer is. You can check online for any manuals that might help you if you got rid of your manual or bought your skid steer loader without a manual. Checking your manual might provide you with some additional troubleshooting help that is specific to the machine you are using. From there here are a few things you will want to consider; what is the status of the battery and the fuses for your machine.

Can You Jumpstart A Bobcat?

Yes, it is possible to jumpstart a Bobcat battery just like a car or truck battery. However, you will want to make sure you are not applying too much power to the battery. Check on the type of battery your Bobcat or other skid steer uses. From there make sure you are applying the right voltage to the Bobcat’s battery. A voltmeter can be very handy in getting an idea of how much power you are applying to the battery. Because many skid steers use small batteries than cars or trucks, it is vital that you don’t use too high a voltage when jumping your Bobcat.
