The linked pedal lever option on the hydrostatic transmission model gives the operator the feel of driving a car, by increasing rpm as you engage the travel pedal.
Hydrostatic or manual synchro shuttle transmission give you the versatility to work the way you want. And standard four-wheel drive provides the hard-working traction you need for extra tough jobs.
Rear PTO comes standard, with optional mid-PTO on hydrostatic transmission models.
The strong and versatile CT4045 makes light work of hauling heavy landscaping materials or livestock feed, clearing paths, mowing your property and digging holes for fences or trees.
Independent power take-off (PTO) allows you to simply flip a switch to engage or disengage the PTO without stopping the tractor or using the clutch. This comes in handy for tasks that require frequent stopping and restarting of your implement, including moving from one hole to the next as you use the auger.
Till your garden and plant a spring food plot. Clear weeds from the ditches and pastures. Dig holes for fence posts or trees in all types of soil conditions. Mow your acreage in an afternoon. You can do it all with power take-off (PTO). Rear PTO is standard on all Bobcat compact tractors, and mid PTO is standard on select models and optional on all other models except 4000 Platform models with a manual transmission. PTO coupled with the three-point hitch allows you to operate numerous implements with ease.
The three-point hitch transforms your Bobcat tractor into a do-it-all machine to mow, till, grade a driveway, rake debris and weeds, move snow, and more. It’s compatible with all Category 1 implements and includes features that make it easy to hook up implements.
Different jobs require different tires to ensure you're getting the best performance from your tractor. Bobcat offers three tire options available for all Bobcat compact tractor models to match the work you do.
Agricultural tires have deep lugs for optimal traction and self-cleaning in soft soil and mud. They also deliver more power to the ground when towing heavy loads or pulling implements.
Turf Tires are designed with less aggressive tread that minimizes disturbance on lush lawns and established landscaping when using your compact tractor.
Industrial Tires provide long wear and outstanding protection against punctures. The tread is wider than agricultural tires, and the lugs are deeper than turf tires. They deliver great traction for all ground conditions and many different applications.
Every day brings a new challenge on the farm or acreage. Bobcat compact tractors offer maximum maneuverability to take on those challenges.
Dimensionally well balanced with a tight turning radius – as little as 8 feet, depending on the model -- your Bobcat compact tractor is engineered to feel powerful and capable while being responsive to your control.
A high minimum ground clearance enables you to keep working in uneven terrain and in wet, muddy conditions, and top travel speeds as high as 18.5 mph (depending on the model) help you cut travel time and focus on your work.
The stable wheelbase maximizes towing capacity and optimally distributes weight to each wheel for more stability on hilly terrain.
Select models also include steering brakes to assist in maintaining a tight turning radius, nearly pivoting the tractor on the inside wheel. (available on models CT2025 and up, depending on transmission type).
A hard-working tractor needs hard-working traction. All Bobcat compact tractors offer four-wheel drive so you can easily engage the system whenever the work demands it.
A ROPS, standard on all non-cab models, is designed to protect the operator in the event of a rollover (when the ROPS is locked in the up position and the seatbelt is fastened). The foldable ROPS can be temporarily lowered when driving under trees, into garages or in other low-clearance areas.
Count on excellent lift capacities to increase your implement capabilities and improve your performance. Many Bobcat tractors offer the highest three-point hitch lift capacity in their size.
This is the classic tractor transmission that many remember from growing up on the farm. The manual-shift transmission is an economical and reliable choice that requires you to stop to change between nine forward gears and three reverse gears. It works well for jobs that require constant speed, including mowing, tilling or spraying. It efficiently handles PTO-demanding work. Second and reverse gears are synchronized to facilitate loader usage – though it's not recommended if you intend to do a lot of digging and loading. Read more about all Bobcat compact tractor transmission options.
The hydrostatic transmission (3-range HST) uses hydraulic pressure to change speed, operating similar to a vehicle. You'll only need to stop moving if you want to change your range. It's a good choice for frequent front-end loader work such as cleaning stalls, mowing or maneuvering in tight areas. A simple twin-pedal design enables quick and easy direction changes: One pedal moves you forward, the other moves you in reverse. Its ease of operation makes it a good choice for novice drivers.

This power take-off (PTO) system is simple, economical and found only on the 2000 Platform tractors with a manual transmission. It uses a mechanical linkage to engage and disengage the PTO system, and the tractor must come to a complete stop before turning the PTO on or off.
Select models are equipped with a turbo-charger that delivers consistently high performance and impressive low-end torque that never relents in higher altitudes.
Features shift-on-the-fly functionality that is the most similar to a stick-shift automobile.
