Thus a very good view results on front attachments. A further advantage of the system is the area of cultivation of intermediate oh, this is very well suitable e.g. for care work. A very good soil adjustment is reached by the central swivel joint at the GT-cross-beam. With conventional tractors inclination reconciliation is made by the rear axle.
