Leveling The Ground (Using Float Position):

Figure 93

Press and hold the float button (1) [Figure 93] while the
joystick is in neutral. While lowering the lift arms (2)
[Figure 93]release the float button.

Tilt the bucket forward (3[Figure 93] to change the
position of the cutting edge of the bucket.

With the bucket tilted farther forward, there is more force
on the cutting edge and more loose material can be
moved.

Drive backward to level loose material.

To disengage, press the float button again or raise the lift
arms (4) [Figure 93].

cutting edge of the bucket on the ground (2) [Figure 94].

Drive forward slowly and continue to tilt the bucket
down (2[Figure 94] until it enters the ground.

Raise the cutting edge a small amount (3) [Figure 94] to
increase traction and keep an even digging depth.
Continue to drive forward until the bucket is full. When the
ground is hard, raise and lower the cutting edge (2 & 3)
[Figure 94] while driving forward.

Tilt the bucket backward (3) [Figure 94] as far as it will go
when the bucket is full.

Lower the lift arms (1) [Figure 95] and put the cutting
edge of the bucket on the ground (2) [Figure 95]. Drive
forward to the edge of the hole to push the material into
the hole.

Tilt the bucket forward (2) [Figure 95] as soon as it is
past the edge of the hole.

If necessary, raise the lift arms to empty the bucket.

TRANSPORTING THE BOBCAT LOADER

Loading Onto Transport Vehicle

WARNING

Adequately designed ramps of sufficient strength are
needed to support the weight of the machine when
loading onto a transport vehicle. Wood ramps can
break and cause personal injury.

W-2058-0494

Be sure the transport and towing vehicles are of
adequate size and capacity. (See Machine Rating on
Page 100)
 for weight of loader.

Figure 97

A loader with an empty bucket or no attachment must be
loaded backward onto the transport vehicle [Figure 97].

The rear of the trailer must be blocked or supported (1)
[Figure 97] when loading or unloading the loader to
prevent the front end of the trailer from raising up.

Fastening To Transport Vehicle

Figure 98

Use the following procedure to fasten the Bobcat Loader
to the transport vehicle to prevent the loader from moving
during sudden stops or when going up or down slopes
[Figure 98].

Lower the bucket or attachment to the floor.

Stop the engine.

Engage the parking brake.

Install chains at the front and rear loader tie down
positions [Figure 98]

Fasten each end of the chain to the transport vehicle.

TOWING THE LOADER

Towing Procedure

Because of the design of the loader, there is not a
recommended towing procedure.

The loader can be lifted onto a transport vehicle.

The loader can be skidded a short distance to move
for service (EXAMPLE: Move onto a transport
vehicle.) without damage to the hydrostatic system.
(The tires/tracks will not turn.) There might be slight
wear to the tires/tracks when the loader is skidded.

The towing chain (or cable) must be rated at 1 & 1/2
times the weight of the loader. (See Machine Rating
on Page 100.)

LIFTING THE LOADER

Single Point Lift

WARNING

AVOID INJURY OR DEATH

Before lifting, check fasteners on single point lift
and operator cab.
