remove the cheese to email directly. I was recently given a bobcat 843 that has steering problems. The bobcat will only turn left. When pushing the levers forward, the left wheels turn very slowly. The right hand side seems to work fine. I am going to purchase a manual soon and hopfully will be able to strip down and repair/replace necessary parts. In the interim does anyone have any suggestions? Is this fluid or belt drive? Thanks in advance for your suggestions! Mike

That is a hydrostatic drive. It could be linkage out of adjustment,or slipping on a shaft.It can also be a bad hydro. pump or motor,collapsed line, stripped drive sprocket or a miriad of other problems. Best thing to do is wait until your manual arrives,and go buy a set of high pressure guages and fittings and go through the troubleshooting step by step. If the pump or motor is bad,don't run it until its thoroughly checked out or you could be pumping steel chips through the rest of the system causing a whole lot more problem$.
