    I have an older S330. About 400 hours. It’s started slowly dripping fluid from the 3 bolts in a row on the underbelly approximately centered between the rear wheels. Any ideas what it might be and what it’ll take to fix it? Thank you.

    Bobcat Skidsteer 553 Interlock issue, voltage

    My Bobcat 553 interlock just started acting up a couple of days ago. I noticed that it would only "lock up" when it wasn't at idle. Today I was watching the voltage meter on the panel and saw the voltage creeping up from ~14V to eventually maxed out ~18V. When the voltmeter creeps into the...
