Top Features & Benefits

Open Cab

Get excellent sightlines to the work and great all-around visibility from the open cab. You’ll also appreciate how fast, and easy it is to get on or off the tractor from either side throughout the day when changing implements or loading materials. The foldable Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) protects the operator in the event of a rollover, and can be temporarily lowered when driving under trees or into garages.

Transmission

Choose from two transmission options on 4000 platform models. Manual synchro shuttle transmission offers shift-on-the-fly functionality similar to a stick-shift automobile. Clutch and shift across eight forward and eight rear speeds as you travel. 3-Range HST hydrostatic transmission option uses hydraulic pressure to change speed, operating similarly to a vehicle. You only need to stop moving if you want to change your range.

Standard Features

Get the features standard on all Bobcat tractors, including four-wheel drive, high ground speeds, rear PTO and three-point hitch, and a low-noise, low-vibration engine. Plus other standard features including: Turbo-charged performance for consistently high performance and low-end torque. Power and tilt steering for near-effortless maneuverability. Lever-controlled three-point hitch for simple implement connection.
