I have a new bobcat 863 skidsteer here and I made a stupid mistake and broke the key off in the ignition(don't ask long story). What can I do? can I buy a replacement igniton and swamp it out? how hard would this be if possible?

If it's BRAND new I'd lean on the dealer to fix the problem at no cost.

Can't get the key out I take it? Have you called a locksmith to have him try to get the key out and make you a new one? It'd be like a hundred bucks but that's a small expense compared to lost time this time of year.

take little jb weld and put it on the end of a pencil. when it tacks up hold it on the broken key part and let it set. you should be able to pull it out after letting it set overnight

The switches used to be made by Indak and were cheap. Changing them out were certainly a DIY project, only 3 or 4 wires on 3 terminals. The terms are marked B for battery, I for ignition and S for start.
