Type of drive
There are two types of tractors, tracked tractors, and those with wheels. Tracked tractors have no wheels and are popular for earthmoving, and are similar to bulldozers as they have immense pushing power. Whereas wheel tractors are used for agriculture purposes as they have faster speeds and fitted tyres to absorb a certain amount of field shock.
