Tractors are one of the most requested pieces of equipment on the iseekplant marketplace, as we have an extensive range of tractor hire suppliers throughout Australia.

How do Tractors work?

Tractors are high-powered utility vehicles designed to tow attachments in the construction and agricultural industries. These vehicles were designed to replace horses and oxen which would pull ploughs and carts. While they were initially developed to help with farm work, tractors are now seen as a multi-functional vehicle for the construction industry as well.

There are two types of tractors: crawler or tracked tractors, and wheeled tractors. Crawler tractors are popular for earthmoving and can also be called bulldozers. Generally, tractor hire suppliers provide tractors for the purpose of pulling or powering various attachments. They can either be powered by a diesel or gasoline engine with availability in four-wheel drive or two-wheel drive models. The most powerful tractors used to pull heavy loads are powered by diesel engines. The gear box in the tractor converts the high-speed revolutions that the diesel engine produces into lower speed revolutions for the wheels, which increases the amount of force that the tractor can use to pull things. This tremendous force comes at the expense of speed, as tractors are typically slow-moving vehicles. Tractors have drawbars and pull attachments that use a sturdy rod, so that the machine can pivot around corners. Tractors have hydraulically powered lifting systems (known as hydraulic hitches) that operates by flicking a switch to raise and lower implements from the ground. These machines also have power assisted braking and steering so that the heavy loads can be safely controlled, along with reinforced cabs with anti-roll bars, air conditioning and heated cabs, and GPS navigation.

Why hire a Tractor?

Tractors are often used in the construction industry to move and load materials like woodchips, sand, rock, recycled material, raw minerals, logs, gravel, dirt, debris and asphalt to another machine, such as a conveyor belt, dump truck or hopper. On construction sites, they can also be used to transport materials like digging tools, metal bars, pipe and bricks over short distances. Many tractors are front loaders that can be fitted with buckets, spikes, grabs, forks and more. They’re a versatile piece of machinery with many different sizes and styles to choose from to best suit you project requirements.
