    I was wondering if any one could help me out. I've searched and read that it can be done, but havn't found anything that says how. Bobcat tells me it can't be done because of the computer connection in their 7 pin connection, but there has to be a way to bypass that. I have the 8 pin cat female plug that I was gonna just repin with the wires off my bobcat soil conditioner to match the cats power and ground pins. I have the wiring schematic for the soil conditioner, but cannot find the schematic for bobcat's 7 pins anywhere (A B C D 1 2 3) to find out which each pin is IE power, ground, data, etc... Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, because I really do not wanna use that toggle switch and have to mount that somewhere in the cab.

    You guys get the Bobcat pinout and I will set you up with the CAT info.

    Actually after reading I think I can help you, you have a CAT machine and a Bobcat work tool, and you have the schematic for the tool, correct?
