Tractor Design

The 2015 competition saw Badger Pulling take a completely new and innovative approach: four-wheel drive with full suspension.  With these design goals came many challenges, but the chance to explore and expand upon last year’s design has the team headed in the same direction as last year.  The 2016 tractor will be stronger, smaller, and more agile.

Some key components of the 2016 design are:

  • Independent front suspension
  • Electric Steering
  • Quick-disconnect CVT
  • Borg-Warner T4 transmisson
  • Custom transfer case
  • Four-link rear suspension
  • Custom rear axle
  • Smartphone compatible app
