In a move the company says represents a return to its “roots” Bobcat has re-entered the tractor market.
check out the Bobcat T595 track loader lineup includes 15 models, ranging from 21 to 58 horsepower. There are four transmission types available:
- Manual shift transmission
- Manual synchro shift transmission for easier shifting
- Automatic hydrostatic transmission (HST)
- Electric hydrostatic transmission (E-HST), with all the ease of use of the HST plus the ability to maintain uphill speed without travel pedal adjustments. You can also set a cruse control with the E-HST which Bobcat says can be useful in applications such as planting.
All 15 models come with four-wheel drive standard and all will be compatible with Bobcat-branded attachments through a standard quick attach mounting system. Attachments include a front-end loader, backhoe and mid-mount mower.
Implements include a box blade, angle blade, tine rake, rotary cutter, tiller, snowblower, finish mower, post hole digger (auger), rear ballast box and quick hitch.
Bobcat says the tractors will also be highly maneuverable with a turn radius as small as 96.4 inches. The tractors feature a rear PTO and will be available with three tire options: agricultural, turf and industrial. In addition to smaller contractors and agricultural customers, these models are aimed at homeowners with a lot of acreage.
These new tractors are designed by Bobcat, but they’re currently being built by Daedong, makers of the Kioti tractor brand. However, that’s not the long-term plan.
