Influence of Extra Weight and Tire Pressure on Fuel Consumption at Normal Tractor Slippage

Abstract: Tire pressure and wheel load are both easily managed parameters which play a significant role in tillage operations for limiting slip which involves energy loss. To a great extent, this aspect affects the fuel consumption and the time required for soil tillage. The study was focused on the tire pressure and extra weight variation effect on fuel consumption and work productivity for soil tillage at normal tractor wheels slippage (7-15%). The experimental research unit composed of an 82.3 kW 4WD tractor and a re… Show more

“…Most small and medium duty four wheel drive tractors are available with different sizes of their front and rear wheels. Most such 4WD tractors are manufactured in such a way that in static conditions rear wheels would be loaded by 55-65% of the total weight of the tractor (Damanauskas et al, 2015;Janulevičius and Giedra, 2008). Tractor researchers recommend maintaining this proportion of vertical wheel loads in working conditions as well (Janulevičius and Giedra, 2008;Stoilov and Kostadinov, 2009).…”

“…Currently, more and more tractor performance researchers recommend reducing the air pressure in the tires (Š merda and Č upera, 2010; or using dual wheels (Molari et al, 2012;Damanauskas et al, 2015), thus increasing contact area between the tires and the ground. It means that tractor's weight is spread across a larger area, reducing pressure on the soil.…”
