Bobcat Compact Tractors has launched a new line of vehicles as part of its ground maintenance equipment (GME) range for Europe. The range also includes mowers and turf equipment, as well as Bobcat’s mini track and small articulated loaders.
The company is aiming to replicate the success they have found in the North American market and aims to be ranked as one of the top-three GME manufacturers in Europe. Bobcat’s GME product line director, Daniele Paciotti, said: “Bobcat is offering three Compact Tractor platforms – the 1000, 2000 and 4000 series – which feature nine new models from 25 to 58 HP designed to meet the varying needs of customers in EMEA. First deliveries of compact tractors to our dealers are planned for February with the initial focus on Italy, UK, Poland and Benelux, where our dealers have shown a great deal of interest.”
Designed to increase productivity, versatility and reliability, the compact tractors boast a sturdy construction, smooth operation, flexible configuration and compatibility with a range of Bobcat attachments. Each of the nine models in the range varies in size and engine horsepower, with the option to choose between manual and hydrostatic transmissions: 3-point hitch with telescopic or quick lower links and open canopies (ROPS) and cabs. The comfortable cabs offer air conditioning, an adjustable steering wheel, linked pedal and ergonomic controls.
The nine models of compact tractor offer a choice of applications and can be equipped with front, mid and rear connections and power take-offs. Features include an independent PTO, auto-PTO, PTO Cruise, HST Cruise or Draft control ensuring optimum productivity and uptime.
The Bob-Tach system comes as standard on all machines with the front-end loader option, allowing users to switch between attachments. Each tractor comes with 4-wheel drive and the Eco PTO feature keeps fuel consumption to a minimum.
Daily maintenance is covered by the one-piece engine cover and Bobcat’s dealer network means that customers can have access to advice, service and parts availability. Each tractor is backed by a 24-month, 200-hour warranty.
