    Well, I guess I've joined the bad Hyd. Oil Cooler Club. Just noticed a small puddle under my CT230. I did some investigation and found that my cooler is covered in hyd. fluid. My cooler lookes exactly like Krazsk's. It looks like it must have happened close to the time I finished pushing snow the other night because I didn't have the oil all over everything. I'd say it was about 15 degrees out night before last when I was using it.
    I wonder how widespread this issue is. It is sounding to me like Bobcat knows about the problem but is resisting sending out a recall notice. If that is the case, I think that's kinda bad on their part. I will be talking to my dealer in the AM, and will post what I find out.

    got my new cooler installed today, took 3 days to get it in from bobcat parts, My tractor is the CT225 and the new cooler looks just like CANADA-CT230 with the extra tubes coming out the side. I am at 125hrs or so tight now on a first 2008 run unit

    Follow up, Talked to the dealer. They are ordering one in and should be available first of next week. They will not come and pick up the tractor without charging $85.00. I guess I'll have to load it up and take it to the dealer.

    charged me 85 as well but I do not have a trailer and figured by the time a borrowed one etc or rented I would be out near that anyway

    Don't do it!!! Don't have it shipped to the dealer!!! Changing the oil cooler is about as simple a repair as you can do. You remove the aircleaner by unhooking the rubber straps, no tools needed. You remove the battery, removing the electrical connectors from the posts and remove the 2 bolts on the bracket holding the battery in place. Now you have a clear shot at the oil cooler. See my pic. Then you remove 2 nuts (easily accessable) to remove the mounting of the oil cooler. The oil connections are 2 banjo bolts. You remove them by turning them counterclockwise Replace the orings on the banjo bolts if you want to be really safe. (make the dealer give you these) The oil does not spill out, except what's in the cooler if you tip it and let it drain out. Reinstall the new one by doing the above backwards. If you can drive the tractor you can easily do this.

    You don't have to remove the battery.

    Yea, I've thought about doing it myself and I'm sure I could. However, I think I'm going to request that the dealer flush the hyraulic system and replace the oil. I know it isn't likely to get moisture, but I would prefer not to find out the hard way. I am also going to have them look at my cruise control, as it has never worked.

    I also have to go down there to pick up my supplies for the 50 hour service.

    Update, I guess these must be flying out of the factory because the dealer has it on order, but it is backordered with the distributor. So, I sit and wait. They told me they expect it in about a week. I hope it doesn't snow any more.
