Ever since its initial launch in the 19th century, a farm tractor has remained one of the most necessary pieces of farming equipment.
Thanks to the years of innovation and development, agricultural tractors have saved millions of farmers from manual labor and enabled efficient farming productivity.
So, what is a tractor?
The term tractor was derived from a Latin word trahere which translates ”to pull”.
A tractor is mainly used in farms to pull various agricultural implements.
Thanks to the tractor’s high torque operation at low speeds, machinery or trailers can be mounted to it to perform multiple farming tasks.
Such include harrowing, plowing, tilling, planting, cultivating, and fertilizing the land.
