Abstract

This paper is focused on the possibility of increasing the drawbar pull of agricultural tractor on the soil and grass-covered surface. From our perspective, we have chosen one available and the cheapest way, i.e. steel boots for tyres of small tractors, and this was compared with a newly developed system of auto-extensible blades next to the wheel. The tractor with steel boots and auto-extensible blades reached a higher drawbar pull on average by 70 % in comparison with tyres.
