What is the drawbar load capacity of 9000, 9020 and 9030 Series Wheel and Track Tractors?


Some of the more recent drawn equipment has high tongue weights. When pulling this equipment the vertical loads can increase dramatically.

Need to know the weight limitations of current drawbars and if it can be increased.


Maximum static vertical load on standard drawbar equipment should not exceed 4,500 lb. (2,043 kg.).
