Tracked tractors are becoming more popular for heavy tillage work due to their ability to put power to the ground.

The December Research Report saw Kondinin Group researchers Mark Saunders, Josh Giumelli and Ben White put four popular brands of tracked tractor head to head in the ultimate tug of war.

In terms of putting power to the ground, larger rubber-tracked tractors are the true heavyweights on farms across Australia.

Recent Kondinin Group tests near Esperance, Western Australia,
have demonstrated exactly what these tracked tractors are capable of, pitting four popular brands head-to-head in a drawbar dynamometer test.

Results for drawbar force, track slip and fuel consumption were recorded across a range of loads.
