The advantages of tracks are:
1. Grounding is lower than pressure, protecting the soil
Using a mop to avoid the formation of a plow layer in dry land, to preserve soil moisture and prevent drought; Preventing damage to the hard bottom layer in paddy fields and ensuring normal cultivation of paddy fields; The specific pressure of wheel tractor grounding is three times that of shoe tractor. The experiment shows that the emergence rate of farmland after being compacted by wheel tractor is only 30% -40%, while the emergence rate after being compacted by shoe tractor can still reach 80% -90%; The wheel ruts of rice paddies also affect the transplanting and harvesting of seedlings, and even cause the soil to deepen continuously, making it impossible to cultivate.
2. Strong traction and obvious advantages in deep overturning and weight-bearing operations
The traction force of a trailer with the same weight is 1.4-1.8 times that of a wheel trailer. In terms of traction efficiency, the maximum traction efficiency of a wheeled tractor is 55-65%, and that of a tracked tractor can reach 70-80%. This means that for tractors with the same horsepower, the effective power of the wheel trailer engine is lost by 15% more than that of a trailer.
3. Excellent pass ability and climbing ability
Crawler tractors, due to their low center of gravity and large coefficient of adhesion, have good slope stability against overturning and sliding, as well as small turning radius maneuverability and strong off-road climbing ability. They have better adaptability than wheel trailers for agricultural and terraced operations in mountainous and hilly areas, especially when equipped with rubber tracks, they belong to all terrain operation machinery.
Its biggest drawback is its slow driving speed, which is very inconvenient during transitions. All steel tracks can also seriously damage the road surface, and some areas restrict tracked tractors from being used on the road.
