Development of White Farm Equipment's Articulated Four-Wheel-Drive Tractor 700684

This paper describes the design and development of a new articulated 4-wheel-drive tractor for the agricultural market. The marketing needs and horsepower trends, as well as the problems associated with transmitting this horsepower to the ground, are described. Due to a short project time schedule, the task force approach to project management was utilized. This approach proved to be extremely successful. The design objectives established were based on program and tooling costs and the short engineering program time available. An accelerated test program consisting of selective component testing, minimum development, and field testing was accomplished.
