What is tractive force?

Contact Rick Davis Contracting today for excavation, demolition and plant hire solutions in Sydney.

One advantage of the 9 tonne TB280FR is it’s ‘higher tractive force’ over earlier models. But what does this mean? In mechanical engineering, it refers to the amount of traction a vehicle exerts on a surface. Traction is a force used to generate motion through dry friction.

When talking about a vehicle’s traction, it’s often synonymous with its ‘grip’. So, when we say the TB280FR has a high tractive force, we mean it won’t be slipping anytime soon.
