Front-mounted 72-inch Snowblower Now Available for Bobcat Compact Tractors

A front-mounted snowblower with a 72-inch cutting width is now available for Bobcat compact tractors. The new snowblower 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 snowblowers available for Bobcat skid-steer loaders.  Features include quarter-inch-thick steel endplates, a half-inch-thick replaceable steel cutting edge, a 20-inch-diameter six-blade fan with adjustable opening, a 24-inch-tall snow intake and 230 degrees of chute rotation.

The 72-inch snowblower 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 snowblower. The loader joystick also hydraulically controls the chute rotator so that the operator can easily redirect snow as needed.

For ease of use, the snowblower and lift kit are connected with two quick-release pins, so the snowblower can be attached to or removed from the tractor in minutes.

Front-mounted snowblowers are ideal for farmers and ranchers, buildings and grounds professionals, landscapers and homeowners with acreage who need to clear large amounts of snow from driveways, sidewalks or parking lots.
