Versatile, powerful tractors that can pull a range of agriculture tools are essential for farm work. Depending on the tool attached, a tractor can be used to churn soil, prepare land for seeding or irrigation, and distribute fertilizer. Tractors also help to make light work of harvesting when crops are ready. Tractors are designed to pull at low speed but are high-powered and come in two- and four-wheel types.
Two-wheel tractors feature a single axle whereas the more common four-wheel tractors have two axles, providing more power. Both types of tractors are used to pull and power farm implements such as trailers, cultivators, ploughs, seeders and harvesters. Two-wheel tractors are generally more affordable, while some four-wheel tractors also feature four-wheel drive and up to 14 wheels to maximize torque. Popular brands at Tradus include John Deere, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, Fendt and Deutz.
Three-point hitches attach ploughs, harrows and other implements to an agricultural or industrial tractor. They transfer the weight of an implement to a tractor’s drive wheels, reducing resistance. Using a three-point hitch gives smaller tractors more traction, which can outperform heavier and larger tractors. Hauer and John Deere produce popular three-point hitches, as do Alliance and Trelleborg.
Power take-off accessories include mowers, balers and dredges – essential for all kinds of farm work. The unit transfers power from the tractor to the accessory in order to perform specialized tasks such as baling hay and other crops, mowing grass or dredging. Power take-off accessories for tractors are produced by big brands such as Hauer, John Deere, Alliance and Trelleborg.
