Future Fuel and Lubricant Requirements for Agricultural Tractors 660364
Information is presented on current tractor lubricant requirements. Present areas of concern which tend to define future requirements are outlined. In addition, specific areas where lubricants for agricultural tractor engines need further understanding of the lubrication phenomena involved are pointed out and a possible revision in current engine oil test procedure is suggested.
With the rapid development in engine and other tractor components, optimisation of tractor design dictates that fuels and lubricants need to be considered an integral part of the overall vehicle design.
