Top Productivity to Do It Faster: Bobcat Compact Tractor
Whether you mow your acreage, tackle a weekend fencing project or work on landscaping jobs every day, you need a compact tractor that’s efficient and productive. Bobcat compact tractors help you do it faster:
Top Traction: Work in Difficult Conditions
Get through the tough spots and avoid spinning or getting stuck. Solid construction, tire options and multiple speed ranges help you focus on your work, regardless of the conditions.
Provides power to the front as well as rear axles, to get more power to the ground even in slippery conditions like mud or sandy soils.
Match your work requirements with the best tire traction and ground disturbance level. Agricultural, general purpose and turf tires are available for your compact tractor.
Multiple speed ranges (two or three, depending on the model) provide flexibility as you work. Pull implements with maximum torque in a lower range and shift into higher ranges for general work and travel.
Rear Differential Lock
Overcome slippery or soft conditions as the differential locks power to both rear wheels.
Work Faster: Maneuver and Change Directions
Trees, barn stalls, garages and other obstacles make your work more challenging. You can accomplish more when you can easily maneuver and quickly change directions. Through crisp turning and responsive steering, Bobcat compact tractors excel at working in tight spaces.
In addition to providing operator safety, the ROPS on Bobcat compact tractors temporarily folds down without tools. It’s convenient if you store the tractor in a garage or encounter low-hanging trees and other obstructions as you work. The anti-rattle feature incorporated into the ROPS eliminates unwanted noise while going over bumps or during regular operation. Folding ROPS is standard on all Bobcat compact tractors. (The ROPS must be UP and the seat belt fastened for operator rollover protection.)
Available on some Bobcat models, steering brakes help make tight turns to navigate through confined areas as you mow, grade, or use the front end loader. To tighten your turning radius, engage the steering brakes to nearly pivot on the tractor’s inside wheel.
Hydraulic Power Steering
Bobcat compact tractors are responsive and easy to maneuver using the standard hydraulic power steering.
Shuttle Shift Lever
On compact tractors equipped with the SST option, the shuttle shift lever provides easy directional changes from forward and reverse, for example when using the front end loader.
Operate Efficiently: Select and Maintain Your Speed
Set and maintain the most productive speed for your Bobcat compact tractor tasks. The tractor gets work done faster by operating at its most efficient speed.
Select the precise speed required for your work. The HST option gives you convenient variable speeds without have to pressing the clutch or shift gears. Just press the forward or reverse pedal and go. The HST option is available on all Bobcat compact tractor models.
Shuttle Shift Transmission
With the SST option, 3 ranges and 4 gears provide a wide range of operating speeds, allowing the operator to match ground speed to work requirements. The semi-synchronized transmission allows operator to shift-on-the go between the four main gears, adjusting ground speed without having to stop. The SST option is available on the following models: CT335, CT445, CT450.
Cruise control, which comes standard with the HST option, maintains the optimum speed as you mow, travel, blow snow and more. Operating the tractor is more comfortable since you don't need to keep constant contact with the pedal.
Foot ThrottleWith the SST option, the foot throttle allows for hands-free control of the engine RPM, so the operator can operate other controls simultaneously, for example when steering and picking up materials with the front end loader.
Smooth Hydraulics: Precisely Adjust Implements and Attachments
Increase precision as you operate the front end loader and 3-point hitch. Smooth and powerful hydraulics help you work faster by accurately placing the attachment or implement at the proper height.
Dual Hydraulic Pumps
Available on most Bobcat compact tractor models, dual hydraulic pumps provide higher hydraulic capacity. They supply the power steering and hydraulics separately to ensure that the front end loader, 3-point hitch lift, and any implements requiring hydraulic input gets the power that they need to get the job done fast.
More Visibility: Modern Styling and Clear Sightlines
Visibility is vital to work quickly and accurately. Because the muffler and air cleaner do not interfere, you have better views of the work area. The sloped design makes it easier to view the bucket area and improve your work accuracy. Easily see the rear work area, 3-point hitch and your implement or attachment. With a strong design and profile, Bobcat compact tractors look good too.
