High Field Speed Tractors, Why? 710686

As the American farmer continues to substitute capital and technology for labor, his need for more powerful tractors will increase.

This paper explores some of the advantages (and disadvantages) of high tractor field speeds, first from the farmer's viewpoint and second from the engineer's or manufacturer's viewpoint.
