Articulated tractors are high horse-powered four-wheel drive (4WD) agricultural tractors that articulate (bend) in the middle. The tractors feature four tires, or sets of tires, of equal size that give the tractor lots of traction. These tractors are often used for tillage and pulling large grain carts.
