Customer Question
I have a Bobcat 435...
I have a Bobcat 435 HAG. The blade lever only works to lower the blade and will not allow to raise the blade. When pulling back on the lever, it feels as if the linkage disconnected. Any ideas on what went wrong and how to access? Thank you

Have you raised the rubber boot over the lower section of the joystick and looked at the linkage? It is broken or has backed off and is not moving the valve spool.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I will look at that tomorrow when I am back on the job site. I didn’t think there was access to that linkage through the joystick boot. If it has slipped off or is broken, how do I gain access to replace or secure ?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 months ago

Usually through the boot area!

No need to call yet. That was a mistake.

I don't have a parts book showing how console comes loose.
