tractor front beam axle

 

A pivoted timber front beam axle is built-in which ensures all-wheel contact on uneven driving surfaces. The front wheel axle supports are carried on tilted king pins to lessen steering loads and reduce back loading into the steering column in addition to providing a degree of self-straightening behaviour. The attached steering brackets form part of the Ackerman steering geometry of the tractor. The wheel axles are supported on needle roller bearings supported in hardwood housings. The front wheels are conventional 16x650x8 turf tyre/wheel units.
