Inspect Your Bobcat Loader: Perform daily maintenance before operating your Bobcat loader. Instructions are necessary before operating or servicing your Bobcat Skid Steer Loader. It is important to read and understand the operation and maintenance manual, operator’s handbook and decals on the machine.

Untrained operators or failure to follow instructions can cause injury or death. This video highlights things to look for before you operate a Bobcat Loader.
Grease Your Bobcat Loader: Routine greasing is crucial to extending the life of your Bobcat loader. Not greasing could cause excessive pin wear, loose connections in the structures and failure of a pin. Inside the tailgate you’ll find a service decal that shows the position of all grease zerks on the loader. Each of these should be greased at least every 10 hours or more if working in very abrasive, dusty conditions. This video highlights proper greasing of your Bobcat Loader.
Bobcat Compact Track Loader Tension: Checking and maintaining track tension helps ensure top performance of your Bobcat compact track loader. It also extends the life of the undercarriage. Tracks that are too loose can come off. Tracks that are too tight can rob power and cause damage or accelerated wear to the rollers, sprockets and drive motor. Track tension on the loader should be checked every 50 hours. This video highlights how to check the track tension.
