Have good ventilation when welding or grinding painted parts. Wear dust mask when grinding painted parts. Toxic dust and gas can be produced. Avoid exhaust fume leaks which can kill without warning. Exhaust system must be tightly sealed.

Disconnecting or loosening any hydraulic tubeline, hose, fitting, component or a part failure can cause lift arms to drop. Do not go under lift arms when raised unless supported by an approved lift arm support device. Replace it if damaged.

Never work on loader with lift arms up unless lift arms are held by an approved lift arm support device. Replace if damaged. Never modify equipment or add attachments not approved by Bobcat Company.

Stop, cool and clean engine of flammable materials before checking fluids. Never service or adjust loader with the engine running unless instructed to do so in the manual. Avoid contact with leaking hydraulic fluid or diesel fuel under pressure. It can penetrate the skin or eyes. Never fill fuel tank with engine running, while smoking or when near open flame.

Keep body, jewelry and clothing away from moving parts, electrical contact, hot parts and exhaust. Wear eye protection to guard from battery acid, compressed springs, fluids under pressure and flying debris when engines are running or tools are used. Use eye protection approved for type of welding. Keep rear door closed except for service. Close and latch door before operating the loader.

Lead-acid batteries produce flammable and explosive gases. Keep arcs, sparks, flames and lighted tobacco away from batteries. Batteries contain acid which burns eyes or skin on contact. Wear protective clothing. If acid contacts body, flush well with water. For eye contact flush well and get immediate medical attention.

Maintenance procedures which are given in the Operation & Maintenance Manual can be performed by the owner/ operator without any specific technical training. Maintenance procedures which are not in the Operation & Maintenance Manual must be performed ONLY BY QUALIFIED BOBCAT SERVICE PERSONNEL. Always use genuine Bobcat replacement parts. The Service Safety Training Course is available from your Bobcat dealer. MSW01-0805

Fig. 1–20 Belt Tension Adjustment (732) 3. a. 730: The 730 Bobcat has a flywheel type alternator. Check wires for damage condition. b. 731, 732: Check alternator belt tension. Make adjustment for belt movement with 5 lbs. (2,27 kg) force (Fig. 1–19 & Fig. 1–20) as shown. c. 732: Check governor belt tension. Make adjustment for belt movement with 5 lbs. (2,27 kg) force (Fig. 1–20) as shown. 4. The 730, 731, 732 Bobcats have two fuses located in the instrument panel (Fig. 1–21). If any fuse is bad, it is caused by an overload in the electrical system. Check for a broken wire or broken insulation. Using extra battery as an aid in starting: If it is necessary to use an extra battery as an aid in starting, it must be correctly connected to the Bobcat electrical system as follows:

WARNING

Protect eyes, skin and clothing from ACID.

1. Fasten one end of cable to positive (+) connector of Bobcat battery. 2. Fasten the other end of the same cable to positive (+) connector of extra battery. 3. Use second cable and fasten one end of the negative (–) connector of extra battery. 4. Fasten the other end of second cable to engine block. Fasten to block as far away from battery as possible to prevent sparks near battery.

1–7 LOADER LUBRICATION Regular lubrication of the loader is important for good performance. Make lubrication at intervals according to 1–2 “SERVICE INTERVALS” on Page 1–3. Figure 1–27 shows the location of grease fittings on the 730 series Bobcat. Use a good quality lithium based, multi–purpose grease. Also put lubricant on the seat rails (Fig. 1–28).

1–8 BOB–TACH AND PIVOT PINS

B–02135R

The Bob–Tach must be checked regularly for condition and wear (See 1–2 “SERVICE INTERVALS” on page 1–3). When levers are in “locked” position (Fig. 1–29), the wedges must go through the holes in the frame of the attachment. Make replacement of bent or broken wedges. All pivot points (Lift arm, Bob–Tach and cylinders) use pins which are held in place by lockbolts (Fig. 1–30). Check lockbolt nuts to be sure all are tight.

1–9 THE ENGINE MUFFLER The muffler on the engine of the 730 loader (S/N 12002 & Below) can come loose, because there is a failure of the studs at the manifold. Replace the studs and nuts which fasten the muffler to the manifold (Fig. 1–31, Items 1 & 2). Tighten the nuts to 14–18 ft.–lbs. (19–24 Nm) torque. (See the Parts Book or Microfiche for the correct part number).
