Best Tractors

Advances in technology have been central to the dramatic progress in the mechanization of farming practices throughout the world. Of greatest importance has been the development of the internal combustion engine and its utilization in farm tractors, combine harvesters and other self-propelled agricultural machinery.
Early tractor designs were based on the concept of substituting mechanical pulling or draft power for the draft animal classically associated with pulling plows through the soil, operating reaper and binder machines through fields of corn, or mowers through fields of grass. Cumbersome steam powered engines were soon to be replaced by the more energy efficient and compact internal combustion engine.
