Design and Operation of the MSU Tandem TractorTransactions of the ASAE (1959)
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.
