    My bobcat 943 has developed a very bad hydraulic leak over the last few days. It will drain 6 gallons of oil in 48 hrs, running or sitting overnight. I have spent about 4 hrs cleaning the machine with hopes I can find the leak. But no such luck. Anyone know there way around the plumbing on one of these?

    If it's anything like our 773, what I have done is flip the cab up, use simple green to clean it up. Then start it up and let it run. The leak will show it's self. On the few times I have been in there, it alway been in a spot where hoses rub together or at the fitting end. Just be careful when you go to put a new hose on, not to cross thread the fitting, easy enough to do.:rolleyes:
