Compact Tractors

Let’s review: in the 1940s and ‘50s, most American farm tractors developed anywhere from 20 hp to 50 hp available on the drawbar or PTO.

Then, in the 1960s, a horsepower war began and manufacturers quickly developed larger, high-horsepower models to accommodate larger, more efficient tools and implements.

But today’s compact tractor manufacturers haven’t forgotten the utility that an acreage or farming operation gets from the tractors of your grandpa’s era. Compact tractors today are far more comfortable, easy to operate, and in general do more than ever before.

 

BOBCAT CT2025

Bobcat is best known for its useful and powerful skid steer loaders, and that same attention applies to its new line of tractors. The CT2025 rests at the low end of the company’s horsepower offerings—25 hp— but brings to bear standard 4WD, steering brakes for maneuverability, and a quick-attach system with attachments and implements that include loader, backhoe, mid-mount mower, and more. Choose manual-shift transmission with nine forward travel speeds and three reverse travel speeds, or hydrostatic transmission for maneuvering between buildings or loader work.
