Title: Ballasting Tractors for Optimal Fuel Efficiency
Published: 2011, Washington State University Extension,
Tractor ballasting influences the efficiency and energy use of tractor operation. Ballasting determines the amount of slip in any given field condition, which affects such items as fuel consumption, field operation time, and tire wear. Total tractor weight also has serious affects on compaction, transmission life, tire life, and tractor safety and stability.
