while operating my 610 bobcat today to move snow,over a 5 to minute period,the travel speed began to slow down to a creep.I looked at the variable speed sheeve and it opened and closed with the lever.I checked the level of the hydraulic fluid at the fill level plugs and it was ok.something tells me there maybe a problem internally in the chain case either with the chains or the clutch(S)>any idea what to look for?Your ideas and help would surely be appreciated.thank you

When mine does that it's a leak somewhere between the valve and the variable sheave on the engine. I've had O-rings on the cylinder inside the sheave start leaking and cause it to slow, it's hard to see that but try and look between the sheave and the engine to see I there is any fresh oil. It also could be o-rings in the valve that are worn and letting oil by. If it moves good at high speed and the clutches aren't slipping then they're fine. I'm pretty sure it won't be in the chain cases. All that's in there are sprockets,chains and the wet clutches you engage when you move the levers.

I just plowed my parents driveway tonight with my 610. I don't see how anything beyond the jackshaft could slip. Are your levers adjusted correctly? Is your variable sheave backing off hydraulically after you put ti in "high"?

Did you back the old girl in to some deep snow?
Mine would do that when the belt got wet from melting snow.

Don, if it should happen again stop and look @ the sheave on the engine to see if it's closed or open. If it has slid apart it's an oil leak unless you unknowingly bumped the lever, BTDT. Good luck and I hope it never happens again
