Bobcat has now introduced five of its intended nine-model range of compact tractors: the CT120, CT122, CT225, CT230 and CT235. The remaining four models are scheduled to arrive later this year. These new machines feature hydrostatic drive (two-speed on the CT120 and CT122, three-speed on the CT225, CT230 and CT235) and front-wheel assist to provide four-wheel drive in rough going. Horsepower ratings in these diesel-powered tractors are, respectively, 20, 22, 27, 30 and 34; operating weights are 2,055, 2,055, 3,021, 3,055 and 3,055 pounds. Each tractor is equipped with a three-point hitch at the rear and with a shielded rear PTO (540 rpm). Implements available for the new compact tractors include a front-end loader, backhoe, auger, box blade and tine rake.
