The article reports on the availability of a four-track system to fit four-wheel drive tractors in Great Britain. It cites that the system is claimed to augment traction by more than 300% and minimize ground pressure to just over 2 psi, equivalent to having eight standard tyres on the rear and six on the front. It notes that the cost of a set for tractors from 140 hp to 180 hp is between £34,000 and £35,000.
