Repair and service Tractors in the eBook
Tractor (from the Latin for "pull") - a vehicle used for towing trailers with objects that cannot be moved by hand, as well as, in particular, for agricultural work. Powered first by a steam engine and then a diesel engine, the tractor has evolved over time to meet different requirements.
Depending on the chassis, there are:
- Wheel tractors with permanent drive on one (rear) axle (2WD) - universal tractors up to 310 hp, the most common, now also available with Attached Front Drive (MFWD). Permanent drive rear wheels are significantly larger in diameter;
- Permanent All Wheel Drive (4WD) Wheeled Tractors - Typically heavy tractors currently in production range from 50 to 600 hp. The tractor is controlled by a steering switch on one or both axles, and in the heaviest machines, by an articulated steering system;
- Tracked tractors - tractors with tracks on the chassis. Typically used for the toughest jobs, most commonly in wetlands and heavy soils. In the 70-80s. steel track tractors have practically been replaced by heavy wheeled tractors due to many disadvantages and limitations of use. Nowadays, with great emphasis on reducing soil compaction, the idea of a track undercarriage based on steel-reinforced non-abrasive rubber tracks is experiencing a renaissance. Tracked tractors currently reach up to 600 hp;
- Half-track tractors - Basically based on the idea of a wheeled tractor, but instead of wheels on one (half-track tractors) or all axles, special track units are used. These tractors combine the advantages of tracked and wheeled tractors.
