    hi guys,
    i have a fairly new to me bobcat S250 that i bought used. how can i tell if i have a 2 speed trans IF the switch on the right handle isn't working? in other words i'm wondering if my machine has a 2 speed trans and that maybe the "solenoid" or switch to activate it doesn't work...how would i know?
    tia,
    steve

    ps...does anyone know if a 2 speed trans is a straight bolt in replacing the single speed ? OR is there a forum elsewhere that could answer that?

    I have never been in a S 250 but I have run a A 300 extensively. In the a 300 there is a rabbit/turtle button on the left joy stick and a speed adjuster on the right joy stick. And in the pannel in the upper right hand of the cab the is a rabbit that appers when it is in high gear. I belive it would have to be more than just a seliniod that controlls the 2 speed

    you may be right...i assumed because all you do is move the rabbit switch is was an electrical solenoid...my joystick has the rabbit ect but i thought they all did, i may have the light on dash but if it's not working it wouldn't light up , was hoping there was something idetifying a 2 speed on the trans itself..... no sticker that i can remember

    It would be right above where it says S250.

    I heard they just started offering a 2-speed S250. I would guess yours is not, if it doesn't have the sticker on it.

    the problem is the previous owner removed all decals and put his own on. i removed his and put back the factory S250 logo

    I wonder if you get your Vin number and call a dealer, They might be able to look it up and find out everything it has.
