Those are for very loose and muddy field work where normal tyres would sink or mangle up the field. Notice how the ground touching surface is bigger than on a normal tyre.

Basically this.

>Some 10,000 unionized workers at the agriculture equipment maker Deere & Company went on strike early Thursday after overwhelmingly rejecting a contract proposal worked out with the company by negotiators for the United Automobile Workers union.

Q: Why does the UAW represent tractor assembly workers?

A. Because the modern car is merely a kind of evolved piece of farm equipment. You can't say that about a bicycle.

The average suburban homeowner lives on a fake copy of a farm (fences, "yards", domestic animals) and drives a tractor (car). It is 100% a derivative lifestyle rip-off of something far more meaningful.

The road and highway system? Under the auspices of the Department of Agriculture (one of the original branches of government) and later, put under the control of "Commerce" department as the government expanded, and NTHSA was created in the 1960s.

The roads were merely a means of moving agricultural produce to markets and ports.

"Commerce" became "commute". "Goods" became "Fatass boomer families" and the use of these turned into "car economy" which will go down in history as the biggest waste of resources ever.

Pet peeve of mine is all the rusting tractors sitting out by the road in rural areas. Like there is something special about showing off, "Hey look, I can let this piece of farm equipment rust and become infested with mice because we are so rich in the first world we can just let shit go like that."

America is like the Olympics for stupidity. Our forefathers would have beaten us mercilessly for letting good metal rust

Old tractors are like old cars, they always need attention or something to be worked on. Some people like that, some don't. On top of that restoration takes money, time, and skills that not everyone has.

For me its the steam engine powered tractor the most kino piece of Farm Equipment. My home town had an annual steam engine show and steam engine tractors have always given me a stiffy compared to modern tractors.

This thing has a ten liter single cylinder engine

poggers
>>
>>1723877
Not only that, the cylinder is also horizontal, so the whole thing rocks back and forth in idle. Also, they tend to blow pretty smoke-rings under load.
To start it, you have to preheat the cylinder head with a torch. Then, you take off the steering wheel, stick it onto a gear connected to the crankshaft, and hand-crank that 10l single cylinder to life.
>>
I have one of these. I like but the brakes are shot and it’s a 3000$ job. Seems like there is a sweet spot for ~50hp too big for homeowner and too small for commercial use nowadays. Thinking about trying to get about 6-7k for the 950 and getting something bigger. I always liked the fords like anon posted probably around 50-60hp so I can run most anything

some young Germans farmers that did a few nice restorations. they also added Hydraulic system and Power steering.
unlike most collectors that let their lanz idle every decade for a few minutes they put the thing to work and plow some fields with it.

here in Germany they started to use farm tractors for earth moving.

we have farmers that switched to doing harvesting for other farmers, so those can run their machines all year round on different jobs.
>>
>>1731253
yes it makes sense to specialise. the benefits and drawbacks to using truck type set-ups like your picture compared to scrapers is an interesting one. my thoughts are that as a rule, trucks have a higher top speed (may not apply to your tractors there or may not apply inversely to the old 6 wheel scrapers) so the longer the haul the better this advantage makes itself. they also tend (depending on size of trailer and scraper) to be able to carry more dirt per load. trailers that can be "paddock dumped", losing their load all in one spot, are better suited to some types of earthmoving too. nearly anything will use less fuel than a twin-engine scraper (some older 657 size scrapers are noted for having 2 V12 engines expected to be at full chat the entire work day). this all makes it seem like a no-brainer and why do scrapers even exist. so then you consider that a twin power scraper can load, in good conditions, in 5 or so seconds compared to a minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes etc for trailers depending on the size of the digger/loader and size of the trailer. a scraper unloads much faster too as it needs to slow down much less. for projects building earth pads the way a scraper unloads in thin layers can be so much better for compaction that specialised compaction and rolling gear is not needed - a good team of operators who know how to pick their lines can use passive wheel rolling on their normal travelling to compact dirt enough for some applications and the last bit can be intentionally wheel rolled to the same standard.

I think he's saying that farmer a is paid by farmer b to do farmer bs harvest. this means farmer b can have his machines on hire all year round without having to bring them back for harvest, turning 2 farmers into essentially machine hire companies with farmland attached.

the powertrain set-up on Caterpillar Tractor-Scrapers is WIERD. IIRC its engine>differential>transmission>torque converter bolted together in that order, at least in the front. First diff I'd ever seen that has a driveshaft go through it.

in the summer they use the tractors for harvest, in the off season they run them on construction sites to move dirt.
