Compact tractors for versatility

Each model varies in size and engine horsepower, with the option to choose between manual and hydrostatic transmission, and between open canopies (ROPS) and cabs. Bobcat’s ‘Bob-Tach’ system comes as standard on all machines with the front end loader option, enabling users to switch between different Bobcat attachments, to carry out multiple jobs easily, delivering value and versatility for customers’ businesses.
