Tractor Draft Control
Dig in to Load Cells to Improve Plowing Efficiency
Draft Control Benefits
Prevent Tractor Engine Overload
Draft control systems use load cell technology to automatically control a tractor’s three-point hitch. The field terrain affects the plowing depth of the tractor’s attachments, such as a v-plow or bottom plow. Rough terrains cause more strain on the hitch, leading to more fuel consumption, wear of the tractor, and less tilling efficiency. The presence of draft control on the tractor helps create an intuitive way to balance the draft on the tractor hitch.
- Reduced tractor wear
- Less fuel consumption
- Operator safety
- Traction control
- Even tilling on rolling or rough terrain
- Reduced plowing time
Draft Control Systems
Engineered for Greater Efficiency and Reduced Cost
Transcell engineers design custom force sensor solutions to create an efficient draft control system that supports your agriculture application.
We incorporate load pins into draft control systems for three-point hitching, as well as wired or wireless connectivity for real-time automated or manual response monitoring. Our load-cell technology offers instant and more accurate readings compared to hydraulic feedback systems.
