  Tractor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tractor (from Latin trahere "to pull"; a conflicting history of the name is that steam tractors were originally referred to as traction engines, eventually becoming a contraction of 'traction' and 'motor') is a device intended for drawing, towing or pulling something which cannot propel itself and, often, powering it too.
The classic farm tractor is a simple open vehicle with two very large driving wheels on an axle below and slightly behind a single seat (the seat and steering wheel consequently are in the center) and the engine in front of the driver with two steerable wheels below the engine compartment.
Older tractors usually require that the operator depress the clutch in order to shift between gears (a limitation of straight-cut gears in the gearbox), but many modern tractors have eliminated this requirement with the introduction of technologies such as power shifting in the 1960's and more modern continuously variable transmissions.

 Tractor Safety: Stay on Top of It!
Tractor rollovers happen when the center of gravity moves past a baseline of stability, either to the side or the rear of the machine.
The steps on the tractor should be used the same as the steps of a ladder; either two hands and one foot or one hand and two feet should be in contact with the steps at all times.
There is either a breakdown of communication or control of the tractor is lost; the worker on the ground is in the wrong spot, the tractor moves rearward too much, or the tractor operator cannot see the worker, who is then crushed between the machines.
