Bobcat CT235 Compact Tractor Posted by Jim Ford on 08/17/2012

I now have 52 hours on my Bobcat CT235 and love it. It seems to have plenty of power. I recently helped my neighbor put in a circular driveway and a lot of the dirt in our area is Caleche Rock, which is very hard when dry.

I had very little problem digging this with my front end loader to use as fill for his driveway. I purchased my tractor with a front end loader and box blade. Both work very well and the tractors weight (a little over 3,000 lbs) gives it plenty of traction.

I just did the 50hr. maintenance and did not have any problem with that, although I had to purchase a roll around pan with hand pump to drain the 8 gallons of hydraulic/differential fluid in.

I am in the process of clearing sage brush off of my 1-1/2 acres and leveling it as it is mostly on a gentle sloping hillside. I also plan to buy a backhoe attachment next spring. A friend gave me a 14" single plow for it and I'm hoping the tractor can handle it! I need to level an area for a garden next spring to give it a try.

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Lots of nice features, lights, horn, turn signals, joystick controls for front end loader, easy access to air clearner, battery, nice hydraulics, adjustable steering wheel and seat, great power and traction, fuel consumption is good. Cons: A little hard to shift between gears sometimes, but not a big problem. Tool box behind seat is useless for tools of any size. Need to buy some larger metric wrenches and sockets for servicing. Nearest dealer is in Twin Falls, Idaho about 3.5 hours away. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: United States Nevada I also considered buying:
