The Innovative Newter Technology Inside Today’s Compact Tractor

Compact tractors quickly became out of reach of the American farm market down through the mid-1980s, quickly filling the gap left by American tractor makers who geared up to meet increased domestic market demand for high-powered, more powerful Ag tractor. Typically, compact tractor models were priced too high relative to their output level; especially as the market became flooded with lower-cost imports that failed to deliver on their hype and quickly became a financial liability for the manufacturer. The solution? “Compact tractor.” Essentially, a cheaper, lower-powered but still very powerful version of the American Ag model that would keep manufacturers in business even as domestic sales sloughed off.

Today’s compact tractors offer four major innovations over their Ag counterparts. They offer four speed transmissions, two different drive modes – “lines” and “automatic” and two different types of fuel – gasoline and diesel. Each offers its own advantages, but what sets these models apart is that they are also much easier to modify, making them a better choice for owners and operators. For example, while gas-powered Ag tractors can only be changed with an engine replacement, a diesel engine offers a myriad of different configurations: many models can be modified to accept optional attachments like double-ended lawn tractors or even ballast tanks for additional storage space on the tractor bed.
These models also offer better overall fuel economy, thanks in large part to their diesel engines. However, there is one caveat. Diesel engines are notorious for overheating and resulting compressor burnouts; therefore, it is highly recommended that owners subject their compact tractors to occasional top-ups with synthetic oil or other fluids to ensure proper engine operation. When purchasing a new model, check for availability of extended warranties and engine replacement coverage. Many models come with at least a one-year warranty.
