    Default S185 Wiper Blade substitution

    Just had to replace a wiper blade on a 2008 S185. The standard blade from an automotive application wouldn't work because the pin on the wiper arm is too short to go completely through the attachment point. The blade would wiggle back and forth until it pulled off of the wiper arm.
    I wound up getting a blade from Bobcat (7147359) but it was about $20 plus tax.
    Is there anyplace to cross reference the number to find a lower cost blade in the future?

    if you ever get an m series, I think the wiper blades are like $38. The arm is nearly $100

    I found a source on ebay (Cab Enclosure Parts, Cab Heaters and Accessories items in AllSkidsteers store on eBay!) that has them and all kinds of other skid steer stuff. But with shipping they're more than just grabbing a blade at the local Bobcat place. Oh well. It's not like I go through them all that quick so I'll just live with it.

    Could you refill it instead of replacing it?

    Not sure. I think I might have chucked the blade that was on the machine after I bought the automotive one. Now that I've gone and replaced the blade with a Bobcat part, a refill might be worth looking into next time around if anyone still makes those.
