The amount of the useful horizontal force available for the working operation, pushing or pulling a load, is drawbar pull force [F.sub.p]:
Sany Graders are also known from best in class drawbar pull and Blade down force.
The maximum drawbar pull for the Model G was 1,167 pounds with a 100-pound wheel weight added to each front wheel, giving a total weight of 1,749 pounds with a 185-pound operator.
The vehicle is designed to handle aircraft up to and including the Airbus A340 and Boeing 747, with a maximum gross vehicle weight of 120,000lbs (54,431 kg)--that's 60 tons--and a maximum drawbar pull of 72,000lbs (36 tons).
It is powered by a 310-kilowatt (kW) (422-horsepower) 8-cylinder V-engine that provides a drawbar pull, or pushing force, of 694 kilonewtons (156,017 pounds).
The influence of operational parameters such as normal load, inflation pressure, toe angle, tread depth, and camber angle on the normalized drawbar pull (named the drawbar pull coefficient) was studied by Bhoopalam via indoor testing of a 16" SRTT tire on ice on the Terramechanics Rig at the Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory (AVDL) at Virginia Tech [10].
It delivers 16 percent more horsepower along with a more impressive power-to-weight ratio, and available torque and drawbar pull than its J-Series counterpart.
Finally, the so-called drawbar pull (DP) is calculated as follows:
Outfitted with a 6.3-cubic-yard blade and featuring 81,000 pounds of drawbar pull, the 2050M was a major increase in the company's earthmoving power without making it too difficult to transport the machine from site to site.
"The increased horsepower and powerful drawbar pull of the 2050M makes it ideal for these applications, and the greater fuel efficiency will help extend runtimes and minimize refueling needs.
Smith can expound on drawbar pull, PTO tests, and--with great enthusiasm--the Plug Fest on UNL's East Campus.
