Initially, tractors were only used for agricultural purposes like plowing and tilling the land. But with the help of advance technology, tractors are being extensively used in the construction industry as well. The newer variants and models of tractors make farming and construction easier. Let’s take a look at some common types of tractors and their uses.
Utility or farm tractors are the most common tractors used for agricultural purposes. The multi-use of these machines help farmers as they don’t have to buy different machines for specific jobs. These tractors can be fitted with various attachment parts, tools, and equipment for carrying out specific jobs like tilling and harvesting.
