Bobcat 610 questions, rims and filters..

Tough trying to get any info on this beast.. I have an older 610 that I'm working on, just got new hoses and the cylinders rebuilt.. Now I need new tire and I'm lost.. There are tubed 7.5x15s on it right now but I'm wondering if I can run those rims with tubeless tires, if so what size would be best? Also, when I put on the new hoses and stuff, how do I change out all the old fluid? Just drain and add 10w30? I bought a hydraulic oil filter but I have no idea where it goes or how to get to it so any help on these issues would be great!!

I'd keep the tubes in the tires. Been down that road. They probably came tubeless, and the owner saw that light. For what it's worth, the skid steer is about the only machine other than tractors that I run tubes in. What I've found is that with such narrow tires relative to rim width, if I hit a curb, or even get down in a frozen rut, that's enough to either break the bead or bend the rim and let the air go... in one big whoosh. Tubes are a pain at times, but not near the pain of having to go to town to have a tire blown back on the rim with a bead blaster.

Tires for those things tend to be fairly standard sizes, and the size ranges are wide enough that you aren't jumping to the next largest without changing a wheel. I run 10.00x16.5's on a (I think) 9" rim. Wish I had more.... Frame clearance is generally the issue with running larger skins.

Not sure about oil changes on that model. On my NH, there's no drain. I just slap a hose whip on one of the boom connections and blow it out in a bucket, then shut her down quick when it stops. Change the filter, and fill with new oil. I tell ya, they though ahead on that design.... no fricken drain plug. Good luck.

I don't believe I would try running any tires on a skid steer without tubes, seems like a little low on
pressure, and the tire would have a tendency to come
off the rim in a turn.

Manuals and parts catalog are available. This site does not permit me to post the name of the source for those. but a Google search probably will find them. Type in "Bobcat 610 manual". The company name is three letters plus Tractor with the first letter "S". The hydraulic filter is down deep in the machine. Remove the seat and the sheet metal below the seat.

I would get a manual for your Bobcat. So you know what to do and it shows you where all of the filters are. Also tells information about draining the fluids in it.
