Bobcat of Northern Virginia now offers the new line of Bobcat compact tractors.

Bobcat of Northern Virginia carries the first three models released in the new Bobcat compact tractor line. Six additional models will be introduced in 2008.

The three available models are the Bobcat CT120, CT225 and CT230. These compact tractors are designed to help farmers, ranchers, commercial landscapers, groundskeepers, homeowners with acreage and other users tackle a variety of tasks. The machines can be used with Bobcat implements, including an angle blade, box blade, finish mower, post-hole digger, seeder and tine rake, as well as a front-end loader and attachments.

The Bobcat CT120 compact tractor features a 21-hp (15.6 kW) diesel engine. At 44 in. (112 cm) wide with agriculture tires, the compact size of the tractor makes it perfect for working in and around barns and sheds, mowing, property maintenance and light-duty work.

The Bobcat CT225 compact tractor has a 25-hp (18.6 kW) diesel engine for labor-saving productivity and all-around versatility. This compact tractor is strong enough to make tough work easy and small enough to work in tight areas, according to the manufacturer.

The third model in the initial launch is the Bobcat CT230. This 30-hp (22.4 kW) compact tractor has the power for heavy-duty loading, tilling or working with a box blade. Like the CT225, the CT230 is strong while remaining small enough to access and work in confined areas.

All of the Bobcat compact tractors feature four-wheel drive for traveling over and working in rough terrain, and they also come with hydrostatic transmissions for easy operation. The CT120 features two travel speed ranges, while the CT225 and CT230 come with three-speed travel. The two larger compact tractor models also are equipped with a premium three-point hitch design for easy implement changes.

The compact tractors have sleek hoods and side panels made of tough, durable steel, and their design provides added visibility to the front of the tractors. Standard comfort and safety features include a spark arrestor muffler, horn, brake lights and operator’s handbook, as well as an optional Bobcat suspension seat and a fully retractable seat belt.
