    The battery on my bobcat 225nt dies. What could it be. ive checked the cables. Their tight. What's the voltage need to be while running? 14v?

    Short-cut from the voice of experience. I'm guessing that this is a common failure (Judging from the line-up with similar complaints.) and the suggestion is to swap it out. It's about 35$ for the kit at miller4less. If you really want to be sure that was it, check before and after for current drain when in the off position. Meltedmetal

    Not having gone out and looked at mine (too cold) I would guess just disconnect the wires and use the continuity test on a multimeter and check for continuity if you do it is stuck on, if not its okay. That is just a guess, but that is the first thing I would try.

    Is there a way to trouble shoot the pressure switch. Where's it located?

    Load test your battery with a carbon pile. Put an ammeter, dc clamp-on, type to verify that your battery is being charged and check with the same ammeter that the battery is not being discharged in the off condition . Proceed from there.
