Design and Operation of the MSU Tandem Tractor

  • Wesley F. Buchele, Michigan State University
A tandem tractor composed of two tractors hooked together and con­trolled from the rear tractor has been built at the Agricultural Engineering Department, Michigan State University. It was tested on sod, plowed, and plowed and disked land. Results indi­cate that the tandem tractor can pro­vide the farmer with a versatile power unit: one four-wheel drive tractor for pulling heavy loads; and two two-wheel drive tractors for pulling light loads.
