Abstract : An articulated frame steering tractor, of which construction was derived from that of a loader, consists of two parts. Those are a front part with a front axle and a rear part with a rear axle in the case of the wheeled tractor. When a steering handle rotates, the two parts bend with each other around a bending point by elongation and shortening of a hydraulic cylinder, of which both ends are respectively attached on each part. A bending angle reaches to about 38 degrees in right or left direction for a commercial articulated tractor (See reference).
