New 2015 Bobcat Utility Vehicles

Bobcat's new 2015 4WD 3400 and 3400XL utility vehicles offer improved suspension systems, new features, bigger payload and towing capacities, plus faster travel speeds, the company announced.

babcat 3400 utvBoth models have a sealed constant velocity transmission and are available with either a 40-horsepower (570 cc) gas engine or a 24-horsepower (1120 cc) diesel engine, both capable of moving at 40 mph with a dealer-installed kit. Gas units provide easier start-up and responsive acceleration with an electronic fuel injection system, which adjusts to temperature and altitude changes; diesel units have automatic glow plugs that adjust to colder starting conditions.An ergonomic lever allows easy shifting; 4WD is shift-on-the-fly.

Both models have a full skid plate, a constant velocity shield and an optional brush guard to protect the undercarriage, engine, transmission and radiator. An adjustable independent front dual A-arm suspension and an adjustable rear de Dion multi-link suspension system, providing a more comfortable ride, tighter turning radius, increased payload capacity and more stability when towing. Each utility vehicle wheel moves independently, keeping all wheels in contact with the ground, for maximum traction.

Front and rear windows, a roof, and canvas or hard-sided doors — available on 3400 models — can be easily added and removed, as needed to both models. Once 3400 owners get the hinges installed, the doors simply lift on and off. Owners can convert the utility vehicles from an open to an enclosed modular cab in a few minutes.

The vehicles have a rugged cargo box with 1,250-pound payload capacity and a longer cargo box — 7 inches longer than previous models, so your customers can haul more in one load.  A standard manual or optional hydraulic dump lever is available to easily empty materials from the vehicle’s cargo box. A higher towing capacity also allows the vehicle and operator to efficiently move materials on a trailer and in the cargo box.

Bobcat has incorporated a new LCD instrumentation screen that will show all the vitals - battery voltage, engine temp, fuel, miles, RPM, transmission position, service intervals and more. 

An optional snow blade that connects to the machines with a winch kit. For ground maintenance professionals, landscapers and homeowners with acreage, a 60-gallon sprayer can be mounted in the machine’s cargo box. The sprayer is ideal for spot weed control and broadcast spraying of liquid fertilizers and chemicals.

General purpose tires come standard; ATV/mud, turf and hard surface tires are available through the parts departments at local Bobcat dealerships, allowing for ease of use on many terrain types. Additional accessories include a 2-inch front receiver, front and rear work lights, radio and speakers, strobe light, backup alarm, a 4,500-pound winch and turn signals.

Cargo box accessories include a divider/extender to separate, protect and transport cargo, or extend the length of box by length of the tailgate; rear window guard to secure cargo that extends above the top of the cargo box; tool holder mount; weather resistant tool box, and chain saw mount to transport a chain saw on the side of the cargo box.
