Four new Bobcat utility vehicles are ready to boost your productivity

New Bobcat utility vehicles

When a pickup truck is too big and bulky, and an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) doesn't have the cargo-carrying capacity you need, try a new Bobcat® utility vehicle with its compact size, exceptional travel speed, plentiful cargo space and seating for up to six occupants.

For property maintenance and everyday chores, choose from four new utility vehicles — the 3200, 3400, 3400XL and 3450 — with many options and accessories to enhance your comfort and performance. Select Bobcat models include gas and diesel options, two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, and the 3450 that's built with the RapidLink™ front-mounted attachment system.

Bobcat utility vehicles will help you get more work done in less time, whether you're feeding horses, cleaning stables or repairing fences. They're ideal for transporting people — up to six with a 3400XL and bench seating — and for carrying cargo, such as hay bales, bags of animal feed, supplies or tools — from point A to point B. Utility vehicles have proven to be cost-saving work machines — replacing larger, less efficient vehicles, especially in confined areas where larger equipment won't fit.

Productivity and performance

Improved productivity is a direct result of improvements made to Bobcat utility vehicles. They include the electronic fuel-injected gas 4x4 models for better cold starting, more responsive acceleration and automatic adjustments for temperature and altitude changes, providing peak performance.

Top speed has increased by as much as 58 percent in the 4x2 models from 19 to 30 mph, while the 4x4 models went from 25 to 30 mph. Transport passengers and cargo more efficiently to get more work done in less time.

4-wheel independent suspension

4-wheel independent suspension

Four-wheel independent suspension improves the Bobcat utility vehicle's agility over rough terrain. Each wheel moves independently to smooth bumps and improve the ride and operator comfort.

Horsepower ratings in both the gas and diesel engines increased considerably, with a jump from 13 to 29 horsepower in the 4x2 gas model and a jump from 23 to 32 horsepower in the 4x4 gas model. Utility vehicles with a diesel engine increased from 20 to 24.8 horsepower. These higher horsepower ratings provide faster speed and quicker acceleration.

Payload capacities increased roughly 33 percent from previous models. The vehicle rated operating capacities increased from 1,200 to 1,600 pounds; the 3400XL has an 1,850-pound capacity. Transport more cargo in the cargo box or on a tow-behind trailer.

Select from one-wheel (turf mode), two-wheel or four-wheel drive on the Bobcat 4x4 models to best match driving conditions. When the vehicle is in 4x4 mode all four wheels receive torque for maximum traction. You control the drive mode based on the traction requirements.

More uptime and easy upkeep

If your machines aren't working, chances are you aren't either, which is why Bobcat utility vehicles are easy to maintain with durable components and component protection for maximum uptime and easy upkeep.

Several protections are in place for machine longevity:

  • Continuously variable transmission (CVT) sealed cover: protects the drive belt used in the CVT and seals the belt from water and mud
  • Skid plate: protects the undercarriage, engine and transmission when traveling over rough terrain
  • CV (constant velocity) shield: protects CV joints from debris that can cause torn CV boots
  • Radiator guard: protects the radiator from debris that can damage the cooling system

In addition to these protective measures, Bobcat utility vehicles have a composite cargo box that resists corrosion and dents, unlike steel or aluminum. The composite box eliminates the need for expensive spray-on liners and molded plastic liners that never fit well. Daily maintenance checks are made easy with access to the engine compartment, air filter and battery.

Liquid-cooled engines in Bobcat utility vehicles protect critical engine components from overheating, and you get more power and performance from the machine because components are kept cooler at higher engine RPMs.

Unmatched versatility

No other utility vehicle offers the same versatility as a Bobcat machine, and the more adaptable the machine, the more work that can get done. With the RapidLink attachment mounting system, you can pair a Bobcat 3450 utility vehicle with up to five different attachments. They include a bucket, pallet fork, mower, snow blade or a push broom. The maximum lift height is 2 feet and the maximum rated lift capacity is 500 pounds.

All terrain tires are standard, but if ground preservation is important, turf tires are available. An optional brush guard protects the radiator, lights and hood (not available on 3450). The powered cargo box lift option makes it easy to tilt and dump a full cargo box.

Your Bobcat utility vehicle can be equipped to suit specific worksite needs with available options such as strobe lights, turn signals and backup alarms.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR RIDE

Make yours stand out from others. Choose from these options to create a unique utility vehicle.

  • All-terrain (standard) or turf tires — you decide what's best for your property
  • 12-volt accessory plug-in to charge your cell phone or MP3 player while you're driving (standard on 3400, 3400XL and 3450)
  • Deluxe package with brush guard, cargo box with powered lift assist and black rims
  • Jobsite accessories including strobe lights, turn signals, work lights and backup alarms
  • Block heater for early-morning cold starts (diesel only)
  • Radio and speakers for your favorite music or news program
  • A number of jobsite-specific accessories to meet your needs

Superior comfort

It's important to feel comfortable when you're getting work done, and that's why Bobcat utility vehicles have unequaled operator and passenger comfort. This includes lower sound levels, due to improvements made to the muffler and engine configuration.

Two-passenger bucket seating is standard with a dealer-installed bench seat available to carry an additional passenger. XL models can carry four to six occupants, depending on bucket or bench seating (NOTE: bench seating is not available on the 3450 model).

showing cab enclosure and snow blade

An optional cab enclosure and hydraulically powered snow blade kit are available for the 3400 and 3200 models.

For owners who regularly work outside in cold and windy climates, a dealer-installed cab and heat are the ticket for keeping operators and passengers happy. It's a great way to ride in comfort whether you're monitoring your livestock, clearing snow or simply checking on your property.

Simple to operate

Normal "turf mode" is one-wheel drive. When the terrain changes, you have complete control of the drive mode, which allows you to shift from two-wheel-drive to four-wheel-drive mode. For example, when you approach a slippery or muddy area, you can maintain momentum while shifting into a more aggressive traction mode. That makes it more likely that the vehicle can make it through without getting stuck. The vehicle must be stopped to lock the rear differential.

Easy-to-see instrumentation provides important information with various gauges and lights. A parking brake indicator illuminates to show that the brake is engaged. To assist with travel speed and direction, gear position indicators inform the driver of which travel range the vehicle is in (high, low, neutral or reverse).

Single-latch tailgate

Single-latch tailgate

A new composite cargo box design features a single-latch tailgate, similar to pickup-style tailgates that can easily be opened with just one hand. The one-piece construction has no seams or crevices, and it's easier to clean the cargo box after hauling soil or mulch. Included tie-down D-rings help secure loads to prevent shifting.
