The 2015 four-wheel-drive Bobcat 3400 and 3400XL utility vehicles feature improved suspension systems, new features, faster travel speeds, and more integrated accessories.
Both the 3400 and 3400XL models have a sealed constant velocity transmission and are available with two engine configurations: a 40-hp (570 cc) gas engine or a 24-hp (1120 cc) diesel engine. The gas and diesel engines provide operators with greater performance — up to 40 mph with a dealer-installed kit.
The 3400 and 3400XL gas units provide easier start-up and responsive acceleration with an electronic fuel injection system, which adjusts to temperature and altitude changes. The 3400 and 3400XL diesel units have automatic glow plugs that adjust to colder starting conditions.
A lever allows operators to shift between high, low, neutral, and park positions. The four-wheel drive system allows operators to shift on the fly to adjust to changing ground conditions.
For machine protection, both models have a full skid plate, a constant velocity shield, and an optional brush guard to protect the undercarriage, engine, transmission, and radiator when traveling over rough terrain, logs, rocks, and other debris.
New Bobcat 3400 and 3400XL utility vehicles provide both an adjustable independent front dual A-arm suspension and an adjustable rear de Dion multi-link suspension system. The new suspension system provides the operator and passengers with a more comfortable ride, tighter turning radius, increased payload capacity, and more stability when towing, according to the company. Each utility vehicle wheel moves independently, keeping all wheels in contact with the ground for maximum traction.
