    hey guys dumb question i know

    my used machine came with no service manuels

    how do i flip the cab up? i assume it does? i know how the seat flips up

    it seems liek a really easy machine to service , all the panels just lift right off

    also there is a red hand over my right shoulder, i assume thats a safty lock for the boom rasied while working?

    The red lever is the boom lock, push it out after the boom is raised and lower it onto the pins. As for tilting the cab, the whole loader boom and cab are together, and it all flips forward. I don't remember where the bolts are, but unless you are doing some major service like rebuilding the hydraulic pump, I don't think you would need to flip it all up. We have had New Holland skidloaders like that since 1995, and we have yet to flip the whole thing up like that.

    THey make a special jack to do it with, On my 6675, I know it would make it alot easier to adjust the brake lever with the cab raised, but it looks like kind of a PITA to do.

    That I Don't know. I flipped through the manual & couldn't get a clear view of where they are. I do know if you remove the 6 bolts holding that steel plate on between your feet & remove that, it opens the hydraulics up considerably. I'd start there. You may also have to remove the front step plate to get the center plate off. Makes life easier.
