Anthony Atkinson of AGMS, a grounds maintenance and agricultural contractor based in Sharpness in Gloucestershire, has purchased the first Bobcat Compact Tractor to be shown in the UK on the Bobcat stand at the LAMMA Exhibition from 10-11 January 2023. The sale was agreed at the LAMMA show with Richard Young, Sales Manager at Abingdon-based TVE Hire & Sales Ltd (TVE), the Authorised Bobcat dealer for South West England.
Anthony Atkinson operates his business in three main sectors – Pitch Management Services, Smallholding & Equestrian Services and Small Agricultural Services. He commented: “With the expansion in my business, I came to LAMMA to find a new dedicated compact tractor to replace the old compact tractor that helped me start and grow my business. I had a look at several machines at the show, but decided on the new CT2535 tractor on the Bobcat stand for the cab comfort, ergonomics and easy maintenance as well as the excellent attachment versatility.”
Excellent Tool Carriers and Choice of Attachments
Alastair Jones, UK Sales Manager for Bobcat’s new Ground Maintenance Equipment (GME) range, said: “The CT2535 is one of nine Compact Tractor models that form part of the GME range. To illustrate the variety of attachment choice for the Compact Tractor range, the CT2535 shown at LAMMA had a Front End Loader and a bucket as well as a rear Tiller attachment. To make sure all jobs get tackled, other compatible attachments include pallet forks, utility forks, utility grapples, mid-mount mowers, backhoes, box blades, rakes and seeders.
“Bobcat’s Compact Tractors can be equipped with front, mid and rear connections and power take-offs. The proven Bob-Tach system comes as standard on all front-end loader platforms, enabling users to switch attachments for multiple jobs easily, delivering greater value and versatility for their businesses.”
Bobcat Compact Tractors to Suit Every Requirement
As part of the GME range, there are three Bobcat Compact Tractor platforms – the 1000, 2000 and 4000 series – which feature nine new models designed to meet the needs of European customers. The CT2535 cabbed model purchased by Anthony Atkinson will be equipped with turf tyres and is part of the 2000 series. Each model varies in size and engine horsepower, with the option to choose between manual and hydrostatic transmissions, and open canopies (ROPS) and cabs.
As well as Compact Tractors, Bobcat’s innovative GME line-up includes zero-turn mowers and Ryan Turfcare equipment, supplemented by the company’s new MT100 mini track and small articulated loaders.
The CT2535 was one of several new products shown by Bobcat for the first time in the UK at the LAMMA 2023 exhibition, including the brand new super compact TL25.60 R-series telehandler and the new MT100 mini track loader.
