Bobcat 3600 Utility Vehicle
Bobcat 3600 4x4 Information:
Bobcat Company, a leader in compact equipment, is breaking new ground in the
utility vehicle market with superior performance and productivity with the new
3650 hydrostatic drive utility vehicles. Continuing a rich tradition of
customer-driven advancements, the 3650 model will take attachment capabilities
to a new level as the industry’s first utility vehicle with the capacity to
operate front-mounted PTO attachments.
Not only are the 3600 and 3650 hydrostatic drive utility vehicles designed to
handle and haul more materials for grooming commercial buildings and grounds or
maintaining personal properties, but they are the first utility vehicles in the
Bobcat® lineup to offer cabs with heat and air conditioning. This will provide
more comfort than a typical utility vehicle while transporting passengers and
for completing multiple work tasks, such as hauling, mowing, sweeping and snow
Two models expand utility vehicle lineup
The new 24.8-horsepower 3600 and 3650 utility vehicles extend the strong
Bobcat line of utility vehicles, which includes the 3200, 3400 and 3400XL
utility vehicle models, and continues with the Toolcat™ 5600 and 5610 utility
work machines. The 3600 meets the need for Bobcat customers who want the
benefits of a hydrostatic drive utility vehicle, while the 3650 will take
attachment capabilities to a new level as it is the industry’s first utility
vehicle with the capacity to operate front-mounted attachments that are PTO
PTO technology is one of the most simple and efficient ways to transfer
engine horsepower to an attachment for optimum performance. This ability
uniquely positions the 3650 to provide users with a highly versatile machine
that fills the gap between standard Bobcat utility vehicles and the larger
Toolcat utility work machines.
The new Bobcat utility vehicles provide more productivity and performance
without compromising other important qualities that customers expect of all
Bobcat equipment: durability, serviceability, comfort, ease of use and
More uptime and easy upkeep are important to both homeowners and commercial
utility vehicle owners. One of the main drivers behind the 3600 and 3650 was the
development of a hydrostatic drive system. The hydrostatic system in the new
Bobcat UTVs provides durability, and uses a single two-speed motor with fewer
moving parts to achieve fast acceleration and maintain top travel speed.
Another key durability feature of the machines is a diesel engine that will
automatically shut itself down if it experiences high engine coolant
temperature, low engine oil pressure, or high hydraulic oil temperature. This
gives the operator added peace of mind when operating Bobcat utility vehicles in
Durability is further enhanced with the composite cargo box that resists
dents and won’t corrode. Standard features on the Bobcat utility vehicles, such
as the skid plate and CV boot to help protect important components from damage
when traveling over rough terrain, logs, rocks and other debris. Options such as
a brush guard provide additional protection.
Productivity and performance
The combination of independent front dual A-arm suspension, with rear De Dion
suspension that ties the two rear wheels together, improves the vehicle’s ride
comfort and provides improved stability to haul and tow heavy loads. These
features allow the 3600 and 3650 utility vehicles to achieve an industry-leading
payload capacity for towing and hauling. Cargo box capacity alone is 1,250
pounds. At a top speed of 30 miles per hour, that means hauling more with each
load and taking fewer trips to get the job done.
Another characteristic of the hydrostatic system is dynamic braking, which
occurs when the operator releases pressure on the travel pedal. As the operator
lets up on the travel pedal, a valve in the drive motor closes — blocking the
flow of oil — which in turn slows the machine down at a similar rate. This
dynamic braking feature also makes the utility vehicle easier to control when
under load. For greater stopping force, the utility vehicles’ four-wheel disc
brakes can be applied.
The 3600 and 3650 utility vehicles’ hydrostatic transmission system offers
the best of both worlds for customers combining smooth drivability and durable
suspension. With an adjustable front and rear suspension, the operator can
choose a setting that matches the load requirements to achieve optimum comfort
and traction without sacrificing durability.
The ability to change directions without shifting has improved operator
convenience and maneuverability. Operators can perform direction changes from
forward to reverse in the new utility vehicles by using a travel control pedal
rather than the typical F-N-R lever. This feature makes changing directions as
easy as rocking one’s toe to go forward and one’s heel to go in reverse, and is
especially beneficial in tight areas around buildings, barns and other
On-the-fly shifting allows the operator to easily adjust to driving
conditions, preventing the utility vehicle from getting stuck when terrain turns
muddy. These features and others, such as easy-to-see instrumentation, a
single-latch tailgate and easy-to-clean composite cargo box, make the Bobcat
utility vehicles intuitive to use.
Customers want to spend time operating their UTVs — not trying to
troubleshoot them. That’s why Bobcat has incorporated an LCD screen within the
speedometer that displays service codes. This allows customers to quickly
identify issues with their machine and get them back up and running quickly.
For daily maintenance, access to key components is important. The fuel tank
on the 3600 and 3650 utility vehicles is conveniently located and daily checks
of items such as fluids, filters and the battery can be made through easy access
to the engine compartment. Liquid-cooled engines in Bobcat utility vehicles
protect critical engine components from overheating, which also results in more
power and performance from the machine, because components are kept cooler at
Comfort and ease of use
Along with hauling materials and cargo, transporting passengers in comfort is
an added benefit for even the hardest-working utility vehicles. Comfort features
on the 3600 and 3650 include tilt steering, ample legroom and foot space and
two-passenger bucket front seat standard on the 3650. A dealer-installed bench
front seat capable of seating up to three occupants is also available on the
3600 utility vehicle.
Customers who need to feed their livestock and clear snow, or continue other
projects into cold winter days or hot summer afternoons will find shelter from
the elements with the optional cab that is equipped with heat and air
conditioning. The cab’s unique modular design can provide customized protection
for the operator and passengers. As an added benefit, the entire cab
construction can be assembled or disassembled in pieces within 30 minutes.
There’s no need to be cut off from communication because of a dead cell phone
battery when working on a jobsite. Two 12-volt accessory plug-ins allow the
operator to conveniently charge a cell phone, iPod, or other electrical devices.
The more tasks that one piece of equipment can complete, the more productive
and profitable it can be for an owner. To meet jobsite needs for snow and ice
removal, the 3600 has an optional integrated snow blade and a sprayer that can
be mounted in the vehicle’s cargo box.
Customers who choose the 3650 utility vehicle will have the same
compatibility but with twice as many tools. The 3650 utility vehicle’s exclusive
Multi-Attachment X-Change™ (M.A.X.)provides integration and versatility not
found on ordinary utility vehicles. In addition to the sprayer, it also will
have the capability of powering front mounted PTO-driven attachments including a
snowblower, mower and angle broom, as well as non-PTO attachments consisting of
the snow blade, pallet fork and bucket. These six attachments, combined with a
maximum lift height of 2 feet and rated lift capacity of 500 pounds, allow the
3650 to accomplish tasks from clearing sidewalks of snow and debris to moving
dirt or palleted materials.
