Tractor - General purpose (Type Bord na Móna)
Type Bord na Móna
This tractor was designed to meet the many needs, on development and production bogs, for a general purpose tractor, which could not be satisfied by any tractor of standard manufacture.
It is used for towing spreader and sod collector sections at machine turnings, assisting machines in sinking conditions, ploughing virgin bog, and is fitted with attachments for bulldozing, angledozing, rail lifting and laying, screw drain cleaning and V dozer windrowing, etc.
The machine has a sturdy main frame built up for standard steel channel and angle section mounted on tracks of generous proportions. The power unit and transmission gearbox are that of a standard agricultural tractor, fitted with a proprietary clutch and brake steering arrangement and a special reducing final chain drive from the half shaft or the standard transmission to the track driving sprocket.
The machine is fitted with a hydraulic pump, front and rear, with the control valves for each system conveniently placed within the driver's cab.
