Agricultural Equipment’s

Agricultural farming products and equipment concerns all tools and machinery used in horticulture and animal husbandry. A wide variety of equipment and products are required based on the industries and operations of a particular farm. The agricultural industry has seen a drastic reduction in labor needs in the past century due to mechanization improvements; further labor reductions are expected as automation and digitalization yield more efficiencies.


Work on farms starts and stops with the tractor, which replaced draft animals for the majority of labor needs in the early 20th century. With the right attachments a tractor could solely complete the majority of tasks needed to tend a farm. Tractors supply high torque at low speeds from an internal combustion engine powered by gasoline, kerosene, diesel, biodiesel, or liquefied petroleum gas. They tow heavy loads and farming equipment in off-road terrain, and can also supply mechanical power (power take-off) to versatile attachments which determine functionality. Some tractors have locomotion supplied by caterpillar treads. Hiboy tractors have additional ground clearance to pass crops without damaging them. Another variant is the two-wheeled tractor, which places a motor above a single-axis; the operator walks beside it or rides on the towed equipment. There are also monowheel tractors, which in fact have three wheels.


Harvesting many surface plants is accomplished by combines, which can be discrete vehicles or tractor-towed machines. Vehicle units are off-road gasoline- or diesel-powered units with a high driver cab for visibility. They are usually wheeled, but tread or wheel and tread models are also manufactured. Some include hillside leveling systems for harvesting on slopes.
