The easiest way to determine if a Bobcat controller is recent enough to add the maintenance clock is to measure the controller mounting bolt pattern on the left side of the loader mainframe. Controllers with a bolt pattern measuring 5.8 inches are maintenance clock compatible. The previous controller pattern measures 7.0 inches (not maintenance clock compatible) [Figure 60-200-4].

Using the remote start tool and service PC, connect and upgrade the Bobcat controller to version 37 or greater software. (See SERVICE PC (LAPTOP COMPUTER) on Page 60-150-1.)

If the loader is equipped with keyless panel, also update the keyless panel software.
