    Anyone ever pull the female fitting off the auxiliary hyrdaulic valve box?

    Just did it operating a harley rake with hoses that were a little too tight.:hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead: Waiting on Bobcat service right now, praying its nothing more than a simple pulled fitting. God I feel stupid.

    I've sheared the male and the female hose coupler off on a low door way with my T190, very fine threads in the "valve box", be careful if you ever have to replace them yourself.

    Ended up being an easy fix. I wish I was the Bobcat guy today. $130 part, $170 for the service call and here and gone within 20 mins. Must be nice.

    If they charged you $170.00 for a 20 min drive. You need to call the service manager. If you have a relationship with your salesman, call him. Its a 10 Minute fix. Unscrew the old coupler and screw in the new one. His travel time would be charged; Travel to the customer and back to the shop. Sounds like that was 40 minutes.
