The problem of tractor protective structures standard standardization

Rivista di Ingegneria Agraria 19(4): 224-232

The problem of tractor protective structures standard standardization

The EEC, ISO and OECD static and dynamic test methods for tractor protective structures were compared. These standards consider mass, wheelbase (or moment of inertia about the rear axle) and min. track. The method of fixing the tractor to the ground is also important.
