Quick Tip about the fixing a wobble in your front caster wheels on your
BOB-CAT® mower

Quick Tip Header Image


BOB-CAT offers two different styles of front caster wheels:  pneumatic and
rounded no-flat options.  Depending on which mower you own and the tire
size on the mower, these wheels are often interchangeable.


If your front caster yoke wobbles on pavement when operating your
BOB-CAT mower, there is a simple solution to eliminate this.  Remove the
top caster cap to reveal a cotter pin and a large slotted hex nut.  Removing the
cotter pin will allow the hex nut to turn.  Tighten the hex nut approximately
¼ turn until the cotter pin is able to be reinstalled through the slot on the hex
nut.  Repeat if necessary, but do not over tighten.  Insure all components are
replaced as installed on your mower.  Refer to the appropriate parts manual
as necessary.
