Bobcat Introduces CT230 Compact Tractor

Posted By admin On February 4, 2008 @ 12:00 am In Boomerang | No Comments

Bobcat Company, a leader in compact equipment for the past 50 years, has introduced a new line of compact tractors, including the Bobcat® CT230. Farmers, ranchers, commercial landscapers, groundskeepers, homeowners with acreage and other users can use the CT230 to tackle a variety of tasks.


 


The CT230 has a 30-horsepower engine with three travel speed options. A hydrostatic transmission and four-wheel drive provide easy operation, especially when traveling over and working in difficult terrain.


 


Weighing 3,055 pounds, the CT230 compact tractor is 56 inches wide with agricultural tires,
118 inches long and 96 inches high with the roll-over protective structure (ROPS) deployed. The ROPS can be folded down to make transportation or storage of the tractor more convenient.


 


Bobcat has developed a number of implements to be used on the compact tractors, including an angle blade, box blade, finish mower, post-hole digger, seeder and tine rake, as well as a front-end loader and attachments.


 


Operators are provided with superior visibility to the front of the tractor through a sleek hood design. This hood is made of tough steel for durability. Additional standard comfort and safety features include a spark arrestor muffler, horn, brake lights, glow plug engine preheat, toolbox, cruise control and operator™s handbook, as well as a suspension seat and a fully retractable seat belt.


 


In addition to the CT230, Bobcat also offers the CT120 and CT225 compact tractors. Six additional compact tractors will be introduced throughout 2008.


 


Fifty years ago, Bobcat Company unleashed a way to work better, smarter, faster. During 2008, the company is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Bobcat compact equipment, which began with the Melroe Self-Propelled Loader ” a three-wheeled front-end loader ” in 1958. That machine evolved into the Bobcat skid-steer loader and spawned the worldwide compact equipment industry. Today, Bobcat continues to lead the world in the design, manufacture and distribution of compact equipment.
