The new snow blower joins front-mounted models with 49- and 62-inch cutting widths introduced last year.
WEST FARGO, N.D. — A front-mounted snow blower with a 72-inch cutting width is now available for Bobcat compact tractors. The new snow blower joins front-mounted models with 49- and 62-inch cutting widths introduced last year.
The new 72-inch model incorporates many of the durability and performance features offered in snow blowers available for Bobcat skid-steer loaders. Features include quarter-inch-thick steel endplates, a half-inch-thick replaceable steel cutting edge, a 20-inch, six-blade fan with adjustable opening, a 24-inch snow intake and 230 degrees of chute rotation.
The 72-inch snow blower fits Bobcat compact tractor models CT225 to CT450. Tractors must be equipped with a mid-PTO as well as a loader joystick and control valve. A lift kit controlled by the loader joystick hydraulically raises and lowers the snow blower. The loader joystick also hydraulically controls the chute rotator so that the operator can easily redirect snow as needed.
For ease of use, the snow blower and lift kit are connected with two quick-release pins, so the snow blower can be attached to or removed from the tractor in minutes.
