    Default air intake pre-cleaner

    On a minor note, I was at my dealer's yesterday ordering a pesky headliner push pin that keeps falling off and I happened to remember the question I recently posed about whether the air intake pre-cleaner was still available for the 'D' or new 5610 unit. The parts guy managed to find it and it is listed for the 'D' unit. There wasn't any reference to the 5610 on way or the other, but I suspect that the new engine cowl would interfere with the pipe that has to be worked over to the side of the cab to go up to the roof.

    I was glad to hear this, since having the intake up high works so much better than closer to the ground. I know that the 'D's have the engine off to the side now and I suppose the air is taken in from the side, but that is still going to be behind the mower and everything it's kicking up.

    By the way, I had my dealer check with his Bobcat rep and they told him that production should start and the pricing should be available for the 5610 in about a week. He also said that the information on the 5610 should be available on the web site by then as well.

    Now that the 3PT version is eminent, I'm having to go back and assess whether I want it, or get a 'D' and keep a small tractor for the 3PT hitch duties. There's something to be said for having two separate pieces of equipment. Of course, having only one unit also means just one machine to maintain.

    I do like the idea of the air intake precleaner located up high, especially for dusty conditions or mowing. Does the precleaner go up the side or back of the toolcat? I wouldn't think the cap/cowl on the 5610 would be a big issue. The 5610 cap isn't any wider or significantly taller than the 5600 box. Both the box and cap tip backwards.

    Rolando, listen to the voice in your head - "I want/need the 5610".

    I have a deal already in place with my local dealer on the trade in of a 40' Genie manlift and a % discount off of a 5610 with any attachments and accessories. Just a matter of waiting for Bobcat to allow ordering.

    The pipe is to the side and just behind the door. On the kit for the 'C', the pipe lays between the underside of the tilt bed and the top of the fuel tank. I was thinking that the cowl on the 5610 wouldn't have a gap below it like the tilt bed does. I need to take some pictures to show you how it fits on my machine. I'll dig out the camera tomorrow.
