For this study, two load cases were applied that represent the mass of the machine on the shoe and crawler track
tension from propel.
Kubota's M8540 Power Krawler narrow-cab tractor brings the benefits of a rear crawler track
to an M8540 narrow-cab tractor chassis, increasing traction and stability while maintaining low clearance, reduced overall width, and high horsepower in a compact tractor.
The new narrow cab crawler, introduced in July, brings the benefits of a rear crawler track
to a M8540 narrow chassis, increasing traction and stability and providing less soil compaction.
A round tube-type radiator at the front, blending into a long, half-round hood over the engine, and a round gas tank at the rear, resembling a steam traction engine boiler minus its smoke box, were supported by two wide-set wheels at the front and a single, low crawler track
centered at the rear.
From a NASA crawler track
shoe to a Harley-Davidson oil tank, the castings all had panache and flair.
Called the Bean 6-10 TrackPull, the little tractor had a single crawler track
at the front.
The suspended cab is mounted on a B5 type crawler track
, enabling the machine to traverse challenging terrain.
