Reboot your acreage

Could you use a hand with a project on your property? Tell us all about it and share a photo for a chance to win the new CT2025 compact tractor from Bobcat.

Owning an acreage or farm comes with a lot of responsibility, and maintaining that property is hard work. With the right tools, though, chores and projects are much easier and more enjoyable.

One of those tools, the new CT2025 compact tractor from Bobcat, is being awarded to the winner of the Reboot Your Acreage Contest from Successful Farming magazine and Bobcat. The 25-hp. CT2025 features manual-shift or hydrostatic transmission, four-wheel drive, power steering, a Category 1 three-point hitch, and rear PTO. It comes with a factory-installed, quick-attach front-end loader that includes a hose kit, bucket level indicator, grille guard, and mounting kit. Additional features include a rollover protective structure, work lights, ergonomic controls, suspension seat, and low-noise engine. The CT2025 offers high ground clearance to help maneuver over rough ground and a tight turning radius for working in small spaces or around obstacles. The prize is valued at more than $20,000.
