Abstract

This paper analyzes the 4x4-wheel drive tractors interaction with the road surface characteristics. An overview of the vertical wheel load and tire pressure influence slippage and traction force can be released. Analyzed Tractor 4x4 front and rear wheel speeds are theoretical and their influence on the driving wheel to interact with the road surface. The article substantiates the Tractor 4x4 driveline, drive torque to be distributed to both propulsion wheel axles in proportion to their stickiness factor of the vertical load and the rolling radius of the product.
Presented Tractor 4x4 with front loader operated wheel drive interaction with the road surface dependencies of the vertical wheel load and tire pressure experimental results. Identify and provide the optimum air pressure in the front and rear tire sizes tractor "4x4" operated with a front loader.

Keyword(s): Tractor, driving wheel, slippage, sliding, air pressure in the tyres, wheel load, front loader.
