The Right Compact Tractor Implements and Attachments
Bobcat® compact tractors offer implements and attachments to help you accomplish dozens of routine jobs – and complete those special one-time projects. The lineup includes choices for landscaping, building and grounds maintenance, and general farm or ranch maintenance.
You'll find a variety of attachment and implement options including 3-point hitch or loader mounted, and Power Take-Off (PTO) or hydraulic driven. To get the most out of your compact tractor, purchase the implements and attachments you regularly use, such as a front-end loader or mower. For other tasks – such as seeding an acreage – rent the attachment or implement from your local Bobcat dealer.
Compact Tractors Attachments & Implements
Adjustable 3-Point Hitch: Fast and Easy Change-Overs
On many compact tractors, changing implements can be frustrating and time-consuming. You must precisely position the tractor, line up the links, and get on and off the machine several times. You may even need to ask for help from a friend, neighbor or spouse.
With Bobcat compact tractors, switching implements isn't a chore. Bobcat's 3-point hitch system makes it easy to adjust the lower link ends, change the sway bar width, and raise or lower the link height to match your implement.
Telescoping Lower Links and Sway Bars
Telescoping lower links (standard on most models) and telescoping sway bars (standard on all models) eliminate the need to reposition the tractor several times when you line up the 3-point hitch. After you move your Bobcat compact tractor close to the implement, it's easy to finish the change-over without getting back on the machine. See the video to see how it works.
If you need more distance to reach the implement, simply extend the lower links and secure the implement with pins. You don't need to return to the operator station to move the compact tractor a few inches.
To match the 3-point hitch to your implement, you can easily change the telescoping sway bar width. Position the tractor close to the implement, remove the pin, adjust the sway bar and re-insert the pin. The sway bar design helps you avoid moving the tractor several times, and the pin system is easier to use than the turnbuckles found on many competitor models.
Rear Remote 3-Point Position Control Lever
With the rear remote 3-point position control lever, you raise and lower the links from the rear of the machine. As you adjust the links from the rear of the machine, you gain quicker and easier changeovers. The rear remote 3-point position control lever is standard on the CT335, CT440, CT445, and CT450.
Crank-Style Lower Lift Link Adjustment
The crank-style lower lift link adjustment makes it easy to adjust the link height to match your implement. The crank mechanism stays cleaner and is easier to adjust compared to turnbuckles.
Responsive 3-Point Hitch: Improved Work Quality
When you raise and lower the 3-point hitch, responsiveness is critical. Bobcat compact tractors have 3-point hitch controls to give you more control over your work. The results are clear: higher-quality results easier adjustments and fewer hassles.
3-Point Position Control: Easily set a repeatable 3-point hitch height for your implement. After you lift the implement and reposition the tractor, position control lowers the implement to the exact height for working. As the video illustrates, you can save time and accomplish more without making ongoing height adjustments. Position control is standard on all models.
3-Point Lowering Speed Valve
This valve allows you to adjust the lowering speed of the 3-point hitch lower links to match the weight of your implement.
PTO: Options to Meet Your Implement Needs
Rear and Mid-PTO
All Bobcat compact tractors are equipped with rear PTO to operate a mower, rotary cutter, snow blower, post hole auger and more. For more versatility, mid-PTO can be added to operate a mid-mount mower and maneuver closer to trees, fence lines, buildings and other objects.
With a live PTO, you must press in the clutch to engage or disengage the PTO. So, the PTO will come to a stop if you need to change ranges. But it will continue to operate at full speed independent of ground speed if you stop or change directions using the hydrostatic controls. For example, when mowing around landscape features, a live PTO provides a better work result in tight areas, delivering consistent, even cutting and superior mower performance. The CT122, CT225, CT230, and CT235 are equipped with live PTO.
Independent PTO allows you to engage the implement without stopping the tractor or pressing the clutch. As you approach the work area, turn on the PTO switch and begin your task. When you use an auger, for example, you can stop the attachment as you move from one hole to the next. Independent PTO is a premium feature that comes standard on the CT335, CT440, CT445, and CT450.
Rear Remote Hydraulic Valve: Power Your Implements
The available rear remote hydraulic valve with float provides versatility to use an implement that requires hydraulics, such as a backhoe attachment.
Front End Loader: Lift and Carry More
A front end loader is essential for most compact tractor owners. With a powerful design and strong axles, Bobcat compact tractors have 21% higher average loader lift capacity than competitive tractors. Carry more and do the job in fewer trips. (Always install the correct rear ballast.)
Power and Lift Capacity: Lift and carry more gravel, dirt, feed, wood and more – in fewer trips. Dual hydraulic pumps (standard on most models) provide more power to lift heavier loads.
Bobcat compact tractors have top loader lift capacity, axle strength and tractive effort to help you confidently complete your loader work. This allows you to scoop a full bucket or grade with minimal wheel spin.
Removable When Not Needed: The front-end loader attaches and removes in minutes. Easy-on for moving materials. Easy-off for improved maneuverability.
Bob-Tach System: Easily Switch Attachments
The optional Bob-Tach® mounting system makes it quick to change buckets or hook up a pallet fork for moving materials.
Bucket Level Indicator
Accurately scrape and carry loads with the assistance of a bucket level indicator. The indicator displays the bucket angle, giving you more control and precision when operating the front end loader and bucket. The indicator design is more visible and useful than other systems, such as a sticker on top of the bucket.

Telescopic Lower Links
Quick, easy implement hookup is made even easier with the telescopic lower links on the 3-point hitch of select models. They extend and adjust for easy connection of rear-mounted implements. There is no need to waste time and effort lining your tractor up with the implement.
