BobCat 610. Access hydraulic control valve.

Thu Sep 06, 2012 8:56 pm

Leaking, bucket tilt, hydraulic control valve.

What is the easiest way to access the control valve? Top or from underside of skid steer?

Have parts and service manuals, but manuals do not explain how to access the valve.

I wish I could help, I had a 743 and I had the control valve off but it was a completely different machine than yours. The only thing I could come up with is:

A person by the name of Charlie did one. If I remember the 610 has a Wisconsin V4.I have a rebuilt one if you need it.

Pressure sprayed the 610 yesterday and today removing much of the built up crud. At least one visible bolt holding the hydraulic valve is accessible from the top and another one from the bottom.

Current plan is to drop off the bucket, then crib the skid steer up to get at least 2 feet of clearance on the under side. Weighs about 2 tons. Makes me wish I had a pit or car hoist.

Rebuilt the Wisconsin V4 engine about 1 1/2 years ago. Winter project.
