Front-mounted snowblowers for compact Bobcat tractors
Two new models of front-mounted snowblower implements are now available for Bobcat compact tractor models CT120 to CT235, with a third model for the CT225 to CT450 available at a later date, which has not been disclosed. To operate a front-mounted snowblower, the tractor must be equipped with a mid-PTO, loader joystick and control valve. The snowblower requires a lift kit and PTO kit to mount to the tractor. The front-end loader, tractor grille guard or front weight kit, if present, need to be removed to use a front-mounted snowblower. However, loader mounts do not have to be removed from the tractor. The snowblower and lift kit are fastened together by two quick-release pins, so the snowblower can be attached to or removed from the tractor in minutes.
The three models of snowblower implements are the following:
Model FCTSB49 — approved for use on the CT120 to CT235 and features a 49-inch cutting width. Model FCTSB62 — approved for use on the CT120 to CT235 and features a 62-inch cutting width. Model FCTSB72 — approved for use on the CT225 to CT450 and features a 72-inch cutting width. The model will be available at a later date.
