Owners of Bobcat® compact tractors are benefiting from the unmatched versatility that these durable machines bring to acreages and jobsites. Thanks to a 50-plus-year history as the world’s leading manufacturer of attachments for compact equipment, Bobcat Company has more than two dozen attachments and implements that enable homeowners with acreage, landscapers, buildings and grounds professionals and other compact tractor users to work productively day after day.

Bobcat has eight compact tractor models, with horsepower ranges from 22 to 49 hp, and a variety of labor-saving attachments and implements — 3-point hitch or loader-mounted, Power Take-Off (PTO) or hydraulic driven. That means there are plenty of options to match your needs. However, don’t be surprised if you keep finding new ways to make the equipment productive. Bobcat compact tractors are loaded with features designed to help you do more work, do it faster and more comfortably.


All-around versatility makes the CT225 a good choice for many applications.


The CT122 is the perfect machine for light-duty work in limited-access areas.

Easy implement hook-up
The Bobcat 3-point hitch enables one person to quickly change implements. Telescoping lower links (models CT225 and larger) eliminate the need to precisely position the tractor when engaging an implement. Rear PTO is available on every tractor. Live PTO (on models CT235 and lower) and independent PTO (standard on models CT440 and up) provide flexibility for the type of work you do.

Use a front-end loader and bucket for digging and carrying jobs. There is ample power for lifting and a bucket level indicator helps prevent spillage. The optional Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system is convenient for changing buckets or using the pallet fork attachment.


Around the acreage or on the jobsite, the CT235 completes jobs with ease.


The CT230 is strong enough for tough jobs, but small enough to work where space is tight.

Operator comfort
Whatever the job, working in comfort is certainly a signature of Bobcat compact tractors.

The hydrostatic transmission enables smooth, easy direction changes. In addition, a Shuttle Shift Transmission (SST) option is available on three models (CT335, CT445 and CT450). It provides a wide range of operating speeds so the driver can match ground speed to work requirements.


The CT440 is ideal for both residential and commercial grounds maintenance projects.


The CT335 combines power and maneuverability to tackle demanding projects.

Inside the operator station, the standard suspension seat limits vibration when traveling over rough ground. The seat is adjustable to accommodate operators of varying sizes. A tilt steering wheel and open foot space add to operator comfort. A deluxe instrument panel is easy to see and read, and the ergonomically shaped controls are within easy reach.

Other factors that make Bobcat tractors the best on the market include a dual cooling system — separate radiator and hydraulic cooler — sealed electrical connections and sealed engine compartment, and secure hose routing. Options include a cab with heat and air conditioning, grill guard and Bob-Tach attachment mounting system. Plus, servicing the compact tractor is simple.


Heavy-duty jobs get done faster and better with the CT450 compact tractor.


Power your way over tough terrain and through difficult jobs with the CT445.
