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.
Dual tractors or Tandem tractors as they are known in some areas are a type of articulated tractor. A number of farmers and later manufacturers built articulated tractors that used 2 medium horse power tractors bolted together with a pivot and removed the front axles to create an articulated machine with 4-wd and twice the power of a single tractor on its own that it was based on. The most famouse 'make in the UK was Doe with there Doe Triple D model based on Fordson E1A Major tractors.
