The quarter scale tractor pull is a student competition held by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) each year. Our goal was to build a tractor using mostly parts that we already had with the goal of building interest among the students for future years. Our design used three engines and a five speed transmission mounted to a custom frame. We had several parts built by our in-house machine shop to accommodate the ones we already had.
As an undergraduate sophomore, I was assigned a team of 4 freshmen to help me complete this task. I managed the team and the finances. I also designed the steering system and constructed some of the components for it.
