    I noticed that my front wheel bearing is leaking, must be the seal. And the hydraulic cylinder is leaking a little. This the very first break down on this machine. Anyone else have wheel bearings leak before? Monday i'll have to call bobcat and order a seal

    nope on the seal. cylinders, yes. usually rebuild or just buy new and keep the old one for parts or scrap

    Junior we don't need any more evidence Bobcat is Bobcrap. That's already been proven by every machine that rolls out of the Bobcrap plant.

    Not to hijack the thread from the OP, but I like your sig quote, JR.

    first make sure the cylinder fluid isnt dripping down on the axle shaft.

    then i'd raise said wheel and check for play in the wheel bearings, before you assume its just the seal.
