Putting UVs and ATVs to the test: Bobcat

Among the vehicles tested was the Bobcat 2200 Diesel. Fortunately, our evaluators had a variety of riding conditions, from dry and dusty to wet and muddy, to get a good feel for its capabilities.

Draft and stability tests

Our engineers performed draft and stability tests on each of the vehicles. The average speed, draft and horsepower test measured from the speed of the front wheel of the towed vehicle. Tipping tested with full fuel tanks and no driver, passengers or cargo.

Tipping Angles (degrees)

  • Left Tip Angle (2): 35 degrees

  • Right Tip Angle (3): 35 degrees

  • Rear Tip Angle (4): 43 degrees

  • Front Tip Angle (4): 47 degrees

Average speed, draft, and horsepower (5)

  • Average speed (6): 6.3 mph

  • Average draft (7): 610 lbs.

  • Average draft horsepower (8): 10.3

  • Peak draft: 1,260 lbs.

Notes: (1) Tipping tested with full fuel tanks and no driver, passengers, or cargo (2) Driver's side down (3) Passenger side down (4) Calculated values (5) Draft limited by vehicle traction (6) Measured from the speed of the front wheel of the towed vehicle (7) Measured from a load cell in the tow line and smoothed by averaging over 1/2-second intervals with a running average (8) Calculated from speed and draft values
