    Hello Guys/Gals,

    We have a Bobcat T190 track loader that is in need of an entire (2) wheel & pump motor replacement. The repair quote we were looking at I believe over $16k.

    We are mechanically inclined, and equipped for various repairs in our shop.

    Is this something that is entirely possible for a fairly mechanically inclined mechanic? I'd imagine a good majority of the machine has to be disassembled below the cab in order to access the motors and pump for removal.

    Parts look to be around: $6500.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, Chris

    Sounds like you should be able to do it.
    Keep in mind you should pressure wash all the parts/hose connections etc. NO GRIT/DIRT...NONE. Also flush the tank and lines.
    I always use carb spray followed by air blowgun on any hydro part/ fitting I'm working on...always.
    You'd prolly be better off finding a Bobcat type forum, and posting there.
    Good luck.

    How many hours on the machine? I''ve had pumps and motors rebuilt at a local hydraulic shop for a fraction of the price of new parts.

    @Mark Oomkes, @BigFish, I will check out the sites recommended. Finaldrivemotors if out of Texas I've heard of them.

    Flushing the system I'm not certain how to begin. Youd think all hoses would need replaced to ensure no contaminants remained, that sounds like a painful job in itself.

    Itd be reassuring to have a repair guide of some sort to follow.

    Machine is a 2011 with roughly 2500hrs.

    Its totally doable I'm sure. If you're near a big city there is probably a shop that specializes in rebuilding them.
    I have a big tractor that needed a clutch which involved removing the loader and splitting the tractor. Couldn't find anyone to do it so dove into it, once you read up and get started it's no biggie.

    Some of those Skid steers are a pain to work on anything under the cab. We service some in my shop, and have replaced drive pumps and motors. None were easy. Never done one like yours, just smaller units.
