Even if you are a “big” farmer, there is a strong chance that one piece of farm equipment sees more work than any other on your acreage — the compact tractor. For smaller acreages, though, they are an ideal tool for all the chores that crop up.

The reasons are easy to see. Compact tractors come with a smaller footprint that larger “utility” tractors, but have enough horsepower and weight to get the work done. They are more user-friendly than ever, letting you put in more hours without feeling like you went over Niagara Falls in a bucket.

Speaking of buckets, most have available—and designed-in—front loader buckets. Capable hydraulics can also power rear backhoes. And attachments galore offer nearly unlimited


Acreage owners and hobby farmers can count on rugged performance, power, comfort and all-around versatility with the economical Bobcat CT2025 compact tractor. With standard four-wheel drive, this tractor is ideal for hauling material, digging holes, mowing and using implements. Climb on and off the tractor with ease thanks to the open cab. Pick the controls that fit your working style. The CT2025 offers options for 3-Range hydrostatic transmission or manual-shift transmission. The integrated joystick lever is within easy reach and makes the font-end loader respond intuitively to your command.
