Euro-Trac Tractor
An entirely new design concept for adjusting tractor weight for each job and field conditions is featured on the new "Euro-Trac" from the Schluter Co., one of Germany's largest and oldest tractor manufacturers.
What appears to be a conventional up-front hood and fuel tank is a solid iron weight. It's hydraulically operated and can be moved forward or backward, or pushed completely off the tractor (onto a special holding frame which stores it at the right height for retrieval) and replaced with a front loader which slides into position on the same sliding track on which the weight moves. The sliding weight allows total tractor weight to be shifted from 60% in front and 40% in back to just the opposite.
The Euro-Trac's engine is mounted directly under the tillable cab to minimize noise. A rotatable seat allows the driver to choose the best way to go, depending on the job, attached equipment, etc.
