- Features include advanced hydraulic controls and impressive power in terms of rated operating capacities, tractive effort, bucket breakout force, and the like.
- Operators of road slugs in the Northwest are usually lines with poor track and steep grades which require a lot of tractive effort, but not necessarily more horsepower.
- ‘It has such tractive power that we were pushing piles several times larger than what others could push; we were pushing mountains,’ he describes.
- The tractive effort of the machine seems weak, especially in this deep snow that we have now.
- And because the tractor unit is self-contained in a single unit, greater tractive effort can be applied to help move the unit through wet soils.
- These tracks enable a machine to operate in conditions where low ground pressure and high tractive effort are needed while minimizing the damage to the operating surface.
