Bobcat t200 Hydraulic Problem

I have a bobcat t200 with a hydraulic oil leak. I need to track it down. Are there any hydraulic diagrams for this machine available on the Internet? Thanks.

Just pop the cab, wear some safety glasses and fire up the engine, it'll show you where it's leaking, Bobcats have an ingenious self flushing hydraulic system, one popped hose and you won't have to worry about your hydraulic oil needing changing, and forget about safe, environmentally friendly disposal, all that fluid just disappears into thin air.

It's magic.

Well we know where it's leaking. There is a seal that is leaking in conjunction with the tilt pedal. I needed the diagra
So I could get a better overall pic of what was going on.

Any ideas? Also I've been refilling with regular tractor hydraulic fluid. Is that ok or does everyone just run the bobcat hydraulic/hydrostatic oil?

Bobcat always says to run their Bobcat branded oil, and there is a difference in their oil, they use zinc additives from what I was told, this is also the debate over why my dealer won't let outside skid steer owners/operators rent their hydraulically driven attachments, they don't want the contamination of the oils.

I had a quote on my desk from your dealer and they wouldnt rent for another machine i had at the time, led me right to Brandt and haven't looked at bobcat since. Really silly when surfwood will rent. Even more flawed when my machine had 20 hours on the clock but I could rent for my 743 which hadn't had the fluid replaced in hundreds of hours and hadn't seen bobcat brand fluid in over a decade. Cost them $210,000 and counting.
I was unable to find the diagram online which I find strange.
