About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Using old and unused spare parts for building a low cost all purpose improvised tractor.


With the advent of technology, a tractor is a must for any farmer. However, not many farmers can afford the high cost of modern tractors. The innovator who developed this tractor got the idea while removing old and unused tractor spare parts and iron scap lying in his house. After some unsuccesful attempts, he finally managed to build an improvised, light weight, custom made tractor capable of all sorts of farm jobs like sowing, weeding, reaping, ploughing etc. And this cost him just Rs. 28,000/-. Not only this, while other heavier tractors give the fuel average of 6 - 8 km per litre, this light weight contraption gives 18 - 20 km per litre and is easier to work on the soil.
