Been searching around and cannot find anyone that did this. Got my son a CAT Skid Steer and had a buddy give me a back up alarm from an actual Skid Steer and wanted to wire it into the PW. Figured I could steal power off of the reverse switch but wanted to see if anyone else has done this.

No, but that sounds like a good mod!


How many wires does the backup alarm have?

Just has a positive and a negative. I orginally thought would use the negative off of the switch, but...now I am thinking just use the positive, I just might slow the machine down when he is in reversa and on 12v.

I'm not familiar with how those skid steer's are wired, but it seems like they would have two 'reverse' switches...? If so, then maybe you could either: Get positive from one and negative from the other, so that both would need to be in reverse to beep; Or get one negative (or positive) from both, so if either is in reverse it would beep?

Luckily, i think it is a super 6 with a single fwd/rvs switch. You have definately got to get your hands on one of these, rear wheel drive, rear wheel steering, levered steering, no steering wheel. My son LOVES it.

My next project it to make the bucket open more, currently only lifts about 6 inches off the ground, my son is planning on digging in the snow with it this winter and it needs to be able to dump. A guy at work made a good sugestion of using the parts from a power seat to move the bucket around. We will see.

If things work out, I'll be getting one of those tomorrow for either $20 or trade for my Chevy Silverado 1500. I'm pretty excited about it.

I had one of those for a while, my son learned how to drive it when he was 2 (kids pick up things quick!) but he didnt like it that much. They sure do fly on 12v though!

yes i put a back-up alarm on my daughters i tapped in right off the motor leads.I used a diode to only allow flow in one direction as not to burn anything up. Works like a charm. Note: I placed a off switch in line so that i could turn the darn thing off after hearing it for hours on end.
