EUROPEAN FARM TRACTOR DESIGN 650162

This paper describes the progress and status of the European farm tractor design. It provides a broad picture of the requirements and of the economical and political factors which affected the design concept during the last 10 years and led to the present advanced farm tractor design. The author concludes that there is little difference between the U.S. and European farm tractor design today because functional features, optional and special equipment are comparable with the exception of differences in legal requirements and tractor sizes. It can be expected that future U.S. and European development work on advanced features will coincide to a great extent.
