Estimating tractor power needs

Synopsis 

This information paper provides guidance and calculation tools to determine the appropriate power (in kW or horsepower) that your field operations will require. It will allow you to determine the size of the tractor that will suit your needs without being under, or over-powered. This is of critical importance, as a machine that is not matched for the tasks it will perform will very likely operate inefficiently. This can lead to fuel waste or the early breakdown.
