Yep - I already did - 13.5V at idle and 14.1V at max rpm. With engine off, around 12.4V.

Yep - I already did - 13.5V at idle and 14.1V at max rpm. With engine off, around 12.4V.
I've been keeping an eye on my battery every since I learned of
the battery leakage problem with Bobcat batteries on TBN. I've
had the tractor for a little over two years now and hadn't noticed...
Yep!! I have the same problem with my Bobcat CT335, with the same black threaded cap.
It's recessed just enough to make it difficult to get a good grasp on it with my hand.
I emailed aquiline dealer, and they will have Aquiline MPC's in stock around August 27. The "Sold Out" on their web site must be
left over from earlier this year.
I found the thread that I mentioned in my last post. I quote
" Re: B2910 front wheel snapped off!
Well in 10 days it will be 3 years since I broke off the RF wheel. Today, I broke off the...
I seem to recall a thread describing an identical problem with a wheel falling off. He attached a lifting strap (or chain)
from the FEL arm to the side of the front axle with the broken wheel and...
No, I haven't tried a brush grubber, but the disadvantage with it is it requires either two people, or climbing on and
off the tractor to attach it to the stump. As far as pushing them over with...
As an added note, I don't currently own a subsoiler and local rental places don't have them. I
was hoping to rent one, if available, to answer my own question.
Has anyone used a subsoiler to remove small sapling ( up to 3 - 4" dia) stumps?
I have many small saplings surrounding the house that I'd like to remove. Using
the grapple has not worked well,...
The service manual for my Bobcat CT335 shows a similar looking valve. Bobcat refers to it as a pressure relief
Hope this helps.
Welcome to TBN, Bob! You're correct. TBN is a fantastic source for information
on tractors, attachments and solutions to problems.
Did you install the kit yourself, or did the dealer install it??
This thread has been very helpful! My Bobcat CT335 also exhibits this squealing sound when warmed up and in reverse. After reading through
the thread referenced by James K0UA, I checked the parts...
Thanks for the comments! I signed up with Consumer Cellular for a basic voice plan, and phone.
Coverage is marginal at the house here, but good enough to communicate with the outside world
Thanks, Muhammad! That ad was certainly annoying. I love Lindt Dark Chocolate, but not
as an ad covering major menu items.
Thanks again! No ad tonight!!
I'm finally considering joining the twenty-first century and getting
myself a cell phone. Is there anybody out in TBN land, especially
in the Northeast, with experience with Consumer Cellular...
Looks familiar!! What's the view like on a clear day?
I did get around to cleaning out the spark arrestor muffler, but not without some difficulty.
The bolt was very tight and felt as though it was bound up, requiring a great deal of force
on a 10"...
Wow! That's the best solution I've seen so far.
Thanks for all the suggestions. I guess it sometimes
pays to rant! :thumbsup:
The snow last week went north of me, leaving only rain and then about 1/2 inch of sleet/snow mixture.
Northern NH got the brunt of the storm. I'm sure that I'll have at least one more chance to...
That's a great idea. I had stuffed a rag in the space below the filter in the hopes
of catching most of any spilled oil, but there was too much oil. Still made a mess.
Next time, I'll certainly...
James - Does your DK35se have a spark arrestor muffler
(has small bolt (square head) on botton surface of muffler?
I'm not sure if this is just a Bobcat feature. The Bobcat manual
says to clean...
Thanks Krazsk and Fred! I'll be doing the cleanout when the temperature moderates a bit.
Gads, I'm getting sick of this cold weather. Still about 12-14 inches of frozen snow on the
ground here in...
I was thinking about the same thing! On the CT335, the oil filter mounts to an interface
that is mounted to the front of the engine block, as shown below.
I think that it could have...
It seems that what we need is a self-sealing punch with a spigot on it. Punch a hole at the lowest point on the filter,
and then open the spigot to direct the oil to a container.
I just completed an oil and filter change on my Bobcat CT335 (100 hrs).
Draining the oil was no problem, but as usual, removing the old oil
filter was a frustrating experience, as it is with most...
I'm getting ready to perform the 100 Hr. service on my CT335. One task is
to clean out the Spark Arrestor Muffler. My concern is that the clean out
plug is right over the alternator, and to avoid...
I ended up buying a set of Craftsman 1/2" drive 6pt metric sockets sizes 10, 12 thru 15, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24 mm.
That takes care of the oil pan plug, loader frame mounting bolts and rear wheel...
Up to now, I have used a regular open-end adjustable wrench for maintenance
work on my CT335, but would like to get a set of the most needed metric 6pt sockets,
especially for the larger hardware...
Hmmmmm! Could be a vacuum cleaner!!
It wasn't the dealer! He was going to sell me a 72" snow blade with the CT235, and wasn't
aware of the warranty clause, and didn't know why Bobcat didn't offer the FEL mounted
snow blade on their...
I think that plows mounted directly to the tractor frame ( not on the FEL) offer better
directional control, as it is not as far out in front, especially when the plow is angled.
Also, you might...
Glad to have you aboard!!
Most of the paths are in areas that are too narrow for the big blower, or the
surface is too irregular.
We had another 2 inches of powder snow (forecast was a dusting to an inch), followed
The funny thing about Max is when he has to go, he goes down a path that
we've cleared for him, but jumps into the deep snow to do his thing! He moves
around a bit to create a depression and then...
This last storm (02/18/2014) dumped an additional 12 inches of snow
here in the hills of Candia NH.
The snow removal equipment did themselves proud. The Pronovost

Any comments on how well the Aquiline MPC chains are working out for you,
I have a Pronovost Puma-74 74" snow blower attached to my Bobcat CT335
(26.5 PTO hp) and it handles it with no problem. I just cleared my 475 foot
driveway (gravel) + 40 foot paved driveway near...
I have an EA 72" box blade and am very satisfied with it. Very rugged construction
and works well with my Bobcat CT335 tractor.
Thanks, Milkman636! Oooops - that should have been "works fine with the powder stuff"!
Bobcat dealer has been great with service when needed, so far! Fortunately, the 335 is
still under warranty,...
Bobcat dealer showed up this morning and found the problem - a failed switched power relay, which
supplies power to most of the instrument panel, headlights and tail lights.
I'm relieved that the...
Hello from New Hampshire! I just developed the same problem with my 2012 CT-335 HST today.

Welcome from Candia, NH!
I haven't tried mine in the video mode yet, so can't comment on audio track noise.
I did discover that when Multi-Shot in fast burst mode (2, 3 or 4 shot), image resolution
remains at 4 Mp, even...
I recently purchased a Moultrie M-880 game camera which advertised up to 8 Mp resolution
photos. Even though I have the resolution set to 8 Mp, it only takes 4 Mp resolution

I got my start in home computing with an Imsai 8080 (2 Mhz); upgraded to a Z80 (4 Mhz). It had

I had a fill up of propane on 12/17/2013 at 3.629/gal. It looks like my next fill up
is going to be around 4.28/gal. based on recent deliveries at locations close by.

The dealer called this morning around 10AM, saying that the snow blower was repaired and they would
bring it up if I could unload it from a pickup truck. At that time, I was trying to get the...
The dealer came up yesterday afternoon to pick up the snow blower. No word as to when it
will be repaired and returned. Two to five inches of snow forecast for late today into Wednesday.
Murphy must be lurking nearby! I emailed an order for the same chains Friday and received an
email, confirming the order. Today, I received another email cancelling the order, saying that they...
Here's a picture of the shaft (on the right) and the splined adapter (on the left). It
appears that there was next to no penetration of the weld bead to the adapter.
Well, it's finally time for an update. We had 7" of wet snow yesterday so I
finally had a chance to see how the Puma-74 would do. I cleaned up my
475 foot gravel driveway and 40 foot paved...
Thanks, James! Those are the ones that I've been looking at, but haven't ordered
a set yet. A little pricey but lighter and easier to handle for my aging body!
If the current weather keeps up,...
What type of chains are you getting for your DK35se, James??
PTO HP is 26.5, according to Bobcat specs for the CT335. I'm looking forward to seeing how it does
with heavy wet snow also. I'll keep you updated
Thanks Kubotafan for the information, and...
What thickness plexiglass did you use? After my first snowblowing experience with the Puma-74, I
looked like the abominable snow man. Your idea looks more appealing to me now. When I used my
I finally had a chance to use the new snow blower for the first time, after an
8" snowfall of light powder snow. Sorry, but no pictures. The wind was blowing
at 25 mph from many different...
Thanks for all the responses! It appears that this foaming is normal, though it's the first
time I've experienced it since I started using diesel a little over a year and a half ago.
Yesterday, I stopped at the local Shell station to fill two 5 gal.
containers with diesel fuel. I filled the first container with no
problem but while filling the second container, the fuel was...
Thanks for the comments, DevilDog!! I wanted the hydraulic motor chute rotator, but they
sent the blower with the cylinder rotator instead. It seemed to work ok once I re-installed
Jim - Is there a local dealer for Trygg chains?
Ooops, Sorry Jim! I hit "Post Quick Reply" before I'd finished.
It looks like more snow coming before the end of the week. I just might
get a chance to try out the new snow blower yet. Should be...
According to the chart shown at this web page Bolt Grade Markings and Strength Chart
metric class 8.8 is similar to SAE Grade 5.
Thanks, all! I received a response from Pronovost, and they confirmed that the
M8 x 50mm shear bolt is grade 8.8!
Thanks again, and wishing everyone a very happy and safe new year.
I already sent one email to Pronovost asking about an assembly/setup manual for the Puma-74
snowblower, but haven't received a response from them yet. My blower only had a operator/parts
Kubotafan - I meant to comment on the plexiglass shield. It sounds like a good idea but I'll
probably wait until I get some experience with the blower on the tractor. Did you include a
My auger drive shaft shear bolt is specified to be a 1/4" NC x 1" Grade 2 with nylon lock nut.
Well, I finally have the new snow blower ready for the upcoming rain storm, but not without some difficulty! The first task was to determine the correct pto shaft length. It was obviously too long to...
The manual for the pto drive shaft (T40) for my Pronovost Puma-74 snowblower
calls for a M8 x 50mm safety shearbolt, but doesn't specify a grade. Does anyone
have information on what grade...
I looked all over for a used Puma-74 but no luck, so decided to bite the bullet and
buy a new one. Now, waiting for some precipitation, other than rain, to try it out.
I ordered a new Provonost Puma-74 snowblower back in November and
it was delivered yesterday (12/23/13). I unloaded it from the dealer's
trailer in the pouring rain and was soaked by the time I...
I should have been a little more specific in my original post. I plan on ordering a
Pronovost Puma 74 inch snowblower, with hydraulic chute rotation. The cylinder
rotation mechanism looks like...
I'm preparing to order a 3pt snow blower and would like to determine if one
type of hydraulic chute rotation is better than the other! I would think that
the hydraulic motor would be less...
Cute, James! You'll have to nickname her CW (Cat Whiskers)!!!
I have a Stealth Cam 1540IR and it's reliability suffers also. It worked fine for the first year before
it failed. The problem was a failed IR sensor. I replaced the sensor since Stealth Cam...
Welcome to the forum, John! Glad to have you aboard!
Thanks for all the comments! I hope that posting this might help someone else
who experiences this for the first time!
Welcome from K1HJC! Glad to have you aboard!!
OK, but I think I'll refrain from making a habit of that maneuver again! Once was enough!
Today, I was cleaning up some brush and fallen trees. There was one small maple, about 5 inches diameter
at the base that was in my way, so I knocked it down flat with the grapple, then proceeded...
Welcome! Glad to have you aboard!!!
Welcome to TBN!
As a side note, I just discovered why I couldn't access the Bobcat parts catalog, since
I was using the Firefox browser. I switched to IExplorer and was then able to access
the information for the...
Thanks, Dennis! That's just what I need. I'll feel more comfortable having this information when
I get to the dealer.
I've tried that link but all I get is an incomplete page with the notification:

Thank you for your response to my query on mid mount pto on my CT335
Do you have part numbers for the components needed to install the mid-
pto lever and linkage? I...
Welcome to TBN, neighbor!!
Thanks for the reply, Xfaxman!
Yes, I agree! I did email Bobcat and they responded fairly quickly (much to my surprise)
saying that" unfortunately, they do not supply the binder"!!
Has anyone purchased a Utility Tractor service manual from Bobcat?? If so, did it come enclosed
in a three ring binder?
I just received a CT335 service manual from Bobcat but no binder, just the...
I have a Bobcat CT335 with a 72" box blade and I have the same problem when trying

Waiting to hear "the rest of the story"! Hope all is well, triangel!!!
We've had humming birds here in Southern NH for about three weeks now.
They were first spotted around the first week of May.
Life is full of surprises. I purchased my CT335 just a year ago, and though I didn't order this option,
I just discovered that it has a mid-mount pto. See attached photos. The only...
Hi gkm! My 335 was purchased new in May of 2012. I think it may be a 2011 or early 2012 model.
Thanks, Dennis! I did find a sketch of the front axle a little further on in the manual that shows
the single steering cylinder.
While preparing to do a complete grease job on my CT335 (Bobcat
performed the first one during the 50 hour service), I noticed
that the steering components were different than that shown in my...
Thanks, Powerhorse. The 72" Lorenz should be a good match for my CT335.
I'm very happy with my CT335, but if you're planning to use it for finish mowing, I'd be concerned
with it's weight. I know that mine leaves a 1 to 2 inch depression from the rear tires (R4) on any...
Thanks, Karl2 for the information. My Bobcat Ct335 has 26.5 rear pto hp and I'm interested
in the Lorenz design and construction. It looks like the 72" Lorenz should work fine with my
