How Tractor manufacturing developed
A tractor is a large, heavy duty vehicle with a petrol or diesel motor delivering high torque at low speeds for the purpose of pulling a trailer, or agricultural and construction equipment. It can provide a power take off system for the mechanized implements it hauls. Altoghe tractors can also come in smaller sizes but with maybe even with the same amount of power like the Ford tractor models. Tractors initially developed from the portable steam engines used on farms in the 19th century. These early machines gave rise first to traction engines and eventually the general purpose, lightweight petrol engine tractors that became widespread due to mass production in the early 20th century. Today, tractors are especially invaluable in the world of agriculture, as they can tow implement or machine attachments used for ploughing, tilling, harrowing, planting and feeding, as well as spraying fertilizers and pesticides. They also have the power to haul large items, and the heavy treads of their rear tyres allow plenty of traction on soft or uneven terrain. The more modern RC tractors can be controlled remotely and some are used to mow like a tractor mower. One of popular attachments used in tractors is the hey tedder that allows haymaking.
