Hi, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. We can follow up as needed on here. Professionals are not employees of the site but users of the site and help on here as time allows depending on their daily schedule. Sorry to hear you're having these troubles with this machine. Check your chain case oil and for excessive looseness within the drive chain that could be slapping the chain case causing your noise. I also recommend checking your drive axles for any signs of excessive wear or leakage as well. Look inside your hydraulic filter and oil for what looks like fine metal or glitter that would flag internal mechanical problems or component failure existing on this machine. I hope you find this information helpful. Reply back with the results of these checks if any further help is needed. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can.

There is some looseness on the left chain how would that be deal with ?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Check if it's loose within the links and possibly a worn sprocket. If not, it may just be an adjustment to tighten the chain tension tension.

Where do you tighten it from ?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I also just noticed the left stick stops before the right one when pushed forward
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

I do not have the shop manual on hand for all these adjustments but these adjustments are covered in the shop manual. You can usually find PDF versions of these manuals online pretty commonly. Sometimes for under $30 and other times you may get lucky and find a free one somewhere, or used paperback copy on sites like eBay.

I checked everything and it all seems fine
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

I understand. Seems and is fine are two different things. It might be time to either invest in the shop manual to go through and check all your adjustments, service any of those components in order to look for any traces of metal or other trash and debris that would confirm internal mechanical problems or component problems existing, or having a bobcat technician come out to check on that noise for you. Another thing you can do is get a mechanic's stethoscope in order to narrow down exactly where that noise is coming from.

One of the parking brake discs wiggled around a lot that might be the source of the problem
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

That sounds pretty logical as a likely candidate for the noise.
