Giants of the Field: The Plowing Champs
Big tasks require extraordinary machines. They pull, drag and plow through every field. Machineseeker.co.uk, the leading online-marketplace for used machinery created a ranking of the world´s most powerful tractors for you.
They are called bulldogs, tugs or farm tractors: these powerhouses reliably master the toughest operating conditions on the largest fields and construction sites around the world. The strongest tractors pump out up to a whopping 692 hp at maximum power to handle these challenges.
“With an impressive maximum torque of roughly 2220 lb-ft these machines have sufficient power to pull heavy trailers and ploughs through any terrain”, says Thorsten Muschler, founder and CEO of Machineseeker.co.uk.
The first place in the ranking goes to the US tractor Case IH Steiger/ Quadtrac 620. The industry leader weighs over 52,910 lbs. and uses chain drive. The cavernous tank capacity of approximately 500 gallons corresponds to about 15 full bathtubs.
“Digitization is advancing in agriculture”, explains Muschler. Fully automated tractors already use agricultural GPS systems to operate efficiently. “The driver predominantly takes on a monitoring role. Used machinery can easily be retrofitted with this technology.”
