Title: Optimize Wheel Slip to Save Fuel
Published: 2011, Washington State University Extension,
Abstract: Tire slip occurs when the tires are turning faster than the ground speed of the tractor. As a result, less than 60% to 70% of the power that a tractor engine develops is used to pull an implement through the soil. It could even drop to 50% on soft and sandy soils.
