To start the machine, you will turn the key in the upper right part of the vehicle. It is also recommended that you adjust the seat so that you are comfortable while operating. Next, there is a throttle also on the right side of the machine. It controls the RPMs and basically how fast you can drive it.

There are two joysticks that control the movement of the Bobcat. The left stick controls going forward, backward, and left to right. The right joystick controls the bucket function of the machine. This is what is used to load and move things like soil (depending on the job).
