sprayer
combine
cotton harvester
Field cultivator
Cutters and shredders
All-Terrain Vehicle OR ATV

Tractor:
It is a very useful agricultural machine, with
wheels or designed to move easily on the
ground and pulling power enabling
successful agricultural work, even in flooded
fields. It has two brake pedals and is
preparing to pull sledges.
