    Hey folks, hope everyone had a great Christmas and got what they always wanted!! =)

    I'd love some input/advice from the mechanic-types on the site as I need to tackle this job and am a little apprehensive about it.

    Need to replace starter in my Thomas 25G mini-skid. Pulling old starter out and putting new one in seems straightforward as I watched a great vid on youtube.

    The part that I am having trouble with is how I am going to access the starter as everything is in a very small tight space.

    Does anyone have any tips/suggestions?

    Thanks Dutch, but that link is for the full-sized Thomas skid-steer manuals. I have the manual for my MINI-skid but it isn't of much help.

    Appreciate the input though.

    If there's no room to get your hands down into this unit to work, Your only option is to pull the engine.

    I have the same issue with my personal ZTR, They stuck it down into the frame then wrapped the steel body around it.

    Good Luck
