The Tractor70 and Tractor85 radial tires are characterized by extreme robustness and guarantee a high degree of ride comfort, soil preservation and tractive force. They feature an innovative bead design and N.flex technology.
For performance, the Panamera's electric motor provides extra boost to the V8, four-litre twin turbo combustion engine, enabling the luxury saloon to complete a 100 km/h sprint in just 3.4 seconds and offer extraordinary tractive force at higher speeds.
A PM value of unity means the required resultant tractive forces are equal to the maximum tractive force.
Bobcat said the rough terrain capability of the TL43.80HF has also been optimised for applications such as working and digging in piles of materials with the incorporation of new heavy duty Dana Spicer axles with limited slip differential and the outstanding tractive force available of up to 90 per cent of the machine weight.
From the outset the Macan boasts the recently developed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which transfers power as required and almost free of interruption in tractive force. This enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package, and reaches a top speed of 254 km/h.
The available tractive force is also high at up to 90% of the machine weight.
The electric motor provides extra boost to the V8, four-litre twin turbo combustion engine, enabling the luxury saloon to complete a 100km/h sprint in just 3.4 seconds and offers extraordinary tractive force at higher speeds.
An 11% increase in machine weight provides additional blade down pressure and tractive force to increase blading performance, Cat reported.
This plow drive system reduces the tractive force that the tractor needs to supply, as well as the tractor's tire slip.
Certainly, the internal structure characteristics of the longitudinal profile of the laid-down process track has an effect on the smoothness of movement of the wide span tractor (vehicle) and the fluctuation of its tractive force with all the negative implications.
The tractive force, [F.sub.tr], is considered only for positive values and is the force that the tires apply to the dynamometer roller drums (or road).
Its drive system uses proven hydraulic components that maintain even tractive force across the front and rear drives.
