A gear selection aid for agricultural tractors

A gear selection aid for agricultural tractors

Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (82-5515): 17 pp

A microcomputer based gear selection aid has been developed and tested. The device uses engine speed, transmission speed, and injector pump rack position to estimate tractor load and fuel flow. Performance is then predicted in alternative gears, and the optimum gear and throttle setting are displayed for the operator, along with current fuel flow and projected fuel savings.
