Farm Parents Facing the Question: When can I drive the tractor? - Hard work is a tradition, some say a virtue, of growing up on a farm. But farm parents often struggle with assigning tasks to their children. What tasks are too difficult? What jobs are too dangerous? All the while, a chorus of, "When can I drive the tractor?" echoes in the background. New
Reducing Radial Tractor Tire Pressure Can Improve Performance - The research shows that correctly adjusted tire pressure can reduce tire slippage by as much as 20 percent. Reducing tire pressure distributes the weight of the tractor over more soil area due to tire flexing. Also, lower tire pressure reduces soil compaction as the pressure in the tire is very closely related to the force on the soil surface. New
Farming With One Tractor - Although few farms claim only one tractor in their machinery inventory, it is possible to choose, equip and schedule a single tractor to accomplish all of the field work on a farm.
Fuel Requirement Estimates for Selected Field Operations - Field operations needed to culture crops pose a major fuel demand. Farmers can save significant money and energy if they use field operation plans that provide adequate crop care with minimal fuel consumption.
How to Select Lubricating Oil for Farm Engines - Factors you should consider when selecting engine oil include: Oil types (API service classifications), Oil viscosity and Operating conditions. These factors and many other points are covered.
Are Radial Tractor Tires Cost Effective? - When Pirelli Co. developed the first radial tractor tire in 1957, the company claimed it would develop 20 percent greater traction with less slippage at equal load than an equivalent bias-ply tire. (Forrest, et al. 1962) Subsequent research has confirmed that radial tires have the advantage in tractive efficiency.
Tractor Tire and Ballast Management - Careful management of ballast and tire inflation pressure can maximize tractive efficiency, minimize compaction, increase tractor drivetrain life and increase profitability.
