Customer Question
I have a T250...

I have a T250 Bobcat that is down on a job site and I need to move it to my shop. Is there a way to disable the hydraulics so that it is freewheeling?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I do not know off hand. It is a Bobcat tracked 250
