Pallet Forks

Figure 62

If a pallet fork attachment is used, the load center moves
forward and reduces the Rated Operating Capacity.

The maximum load to be carried when using a pallet fork
is shown on a decal located on the pallet fork frame (1)
[Figure 62].

WARNING

AVOID INJURY OR DEATH

Do not exceed Rated Operating Capacity. Excessive
load can cause tipping or loss of control.

W-2053-0903

See your Bobcat dealer for more information about pallet
fork inspection, maintenance and replacement. See your
Bobcat Loader dealer for Rated Operating Capacity when
using a pallet fork and for other available attachments.

ATTACHMENTS AND BUCKETS (CONT’D)

Power Bob-Tach™ - Installing The Bucket Or
Attachment

The Bob-Tach is used for fast changing of buckets and
attachments. See the appropriate Attachment Operation
& Maintenance Manual to install other attachments.

Perform the PRE-STARTING PROCEDURE. (See PRE-
STARTING PROCEDURES on Page 22.)

Push and hold BOB-TACH “WEDGES UP” switch (1)
[Figure 69] (Front Accessory Panel) until levers (2) are in
unlocked position (wedges fully raised).

NOTE: The Power Bob-Tach system has continuous

pressurized hydraulic oil to keep the wedges
in the engaged position and prevent
attachment disengagement. Because the
wedges can slowly lower, the operator may
need to reactivate the switch (WEDGES UP)
before installing an attachment to be sure
both wedges are fully raised before installing
the attachment.

The wedges (4) [Figure 69] must extend through the
holes in the mounting frame of the bucket (or other
attachment), securely fastening the bucket to the
