    Hi Everyone, Happy Holidays! Question? My friend bought a used small(and i mean small) SCATTRACK..looks like a Bobcat(Kubota engine), if he doesnt use the machine for a few days or so, the FOOT pedals that operate lift/tilt bucket(i think thats what he said) seem to get stuck, hard to press, seems he has to stomp the crap out of them,when they free up they are fine, any clues? is there a filter that may have to be changed? he said he cant see any grease fittings? Thanks ahead of time

    Most of the machines that have foot controls, are a series of linkages. Rods and tie rod ends. I would remove covers, clean well and grease or oil all moving parts. Run the machine and repeat.
