Bobcat UTVs enter a new era

01/25/2011 @ 11:01am

The third generation of Bobcat utility vehicles features four models, and its design is a direct result of the strategic alliance between Bobcat and Polaris.

Every aspect of the new utility vehicles has been designed to help farmers get more work done in less time. Increased power, speed, payload capacity, and uptime are all key features built into the new models.

Four New Models

The line launched with four new models: 3200, 3400, 3400XL, and 3450. You’ll notice several improvements over previous machines.

Performance and productivity are two of the direct results of the improvements made on these models. These enhancements deliver more responsive acceleration, better payload capacities, and increased horsepower and top speeds. The electronic fuel-injected gas 4×4 models also start easier and run more reliably in higher altitudes.

Give the credit for increased payloads, acceleration, and top speeds to the new horsepower ratings, which range from 24.8 hp. to 32 hp. in the gas and diesel engines.

On the 4×4 models, you simply flip a switch to select from one-wheel (Turf Mode), two-wheel, or four-wheel drive to best match driving conditions. Once the front wheels are engaged in 4×4 mode, all four wheels receive torque for maximum traction.

The four-wheel independent suspension lets you ride in comfort and improves the vehicle’s agility over rough terrain. Other features making for a more comfortable ride include lower sound levels, two-passenger bucket seats, and a dealer-installed cab and heat.

To keep your machine up and running, these UTVs include a sealed continuously variable transmission guard, full skid plate, front and rear constant-velocity CV boot shields, and a radiator guard.

The liquid-cooled engines protect critical engine components from overheating, which means more power and performance from the machines because components stay cooler at higher engine speeds.

With up to five front-mounted attachments available for the 3450, this machine is transformed into a year-round workhorse.

Whether you plan to use a utility vehicle for work or play (or both), any of these new Bobcat models could make a great addition to your operation.
