  • 2000 bobcat 225nt help

    Hello, I am working on a 2000 bobcat 225nt. I have it running and idling fine. The 110 outlets are right where they are supposed to be. I cannot get it to strike an arc. I have checked the fuse on the inside of the machine. I tried to trace wires down but cannot read the numbers on all the wires. All wires look to be attached good. Any help would be great

        Fuse or fuses as their are 2, never the less, how much AC power do you have? Did you measure it?

          Checked the fuse under the top cover and the one by the starter. I had 120 at all 4 receptacles

            What did you really have at the aux terminals, wasn't 120

              Is there any open circuit voltage, measured in DC volts

                At the 110 recpticals I had 118 volts and 220 at the big plug. No dc voltage at the welding lead output.

                  It's like the generator part is fine but the welding part isn't working

                      I've been reading this thread and wondering where you are metering dc current ? When I get home today I will try to meter my bobcat at the + and - post and at the stinger and ground.

                      Would I just measure in Dc with a mm ?

                        Ok I got 71 dc volts in run and 40 on idle at the studs. I believe that's what cruizer is asking you.
                        Also check your dials and make sure there snapped in place. Saw a electric Lincoln one day in between 70 and 85 that wouldn't do nothing until we snapped the dial in place.

                          I wasn't measuring at the + and - studs I was measuring ac voltage at the plugin 110 outlets. I measured dc voltage at the ground and stinger studs and got zero volts

                            What do you mean " Snapped the Dial in place ?

                              Oh, Oh - Zero ? Wow - There's a problem somewhere.
                              Mind you I'm not a welder tech., but that don't sound good !
