Customer Question
I have bobcat t190...

I have bobcat t190. The engine seem to be running up to full power, but the hydraulics power seems not to be there. It does not move with full power. And when I go to scoop a load or grade an area it bogs down. At first if I let it cool down, it runs great for a few hr and problem reoccur. Lately its gotten worse. Now it seem I can't get any work out of the machine. Can some please help if you have a suggestion? Thks Wes

I'm new to this machine and a skid ster all together. Some told me to check the drive belt.I'm in the process of checking tht now
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Morning,

Thank you for the response.

Yes, check the drive belt, most likely it is the tensioner that is faulty.

The drive belt tensioner pulley is mounted on an eccentric mandrel, the torsion spring turns the mandrel to keep constant tension on the pulley/belt when it's tensioned properly. When there's no tension on the torsion spring the pointer will be at the 1 o'clock position, which also means there will be no tension on the belt.
