Two-wheeled tractor or walking tractor Einachsschlepper is a general term understood and parts of to stand for single-axle tractor, which is a single-axle tractor that is self-powered And self-propelled,can pull and drive various agricultural implements, such as trailers, cultivators or harrows, plows, or various seeders and harvesters.The operator usually walks behind it or rides on the implement being towed.Similar terms are incorrectly used for home rotavators or power tillers; although these may be wheeled and/or self-propelled, they are not tailor-made for traction.Two-wheel tractors are designed to tow any of several types of implements,while rotary tillers are designed to work the soil with specialized digging tools.This article is about two-wheel tractors, as distinguished from such cultivators.

Definition Two-wheel tractor

The study identified a number of terms used to identify two-wheeled tractors, including "walk-behind tractor; iron ox; walk-behind tractor; mechanical ox; ox-machine; walking tractor; hand tractor; single-axle tractor; and in Asia, tok-tok .There is also some confusion in nomenclature for similarly sized/configured machines that operate a single implement (e.g.power tillers; rear tine tillers; rotary hoes; rotary plows; rotary tillers; rotary tillers, etc.).The difference between a two-wheel tractor and any of these machines is that a two-wheel tractor is a single-axle machine and the operator typically walks behind the tractor or rides on the implement being towed.Two-wheel tractors are designed to operate multiple interchangeable implements, where machines of the above categories typically operate only one type of implement (such as a tiller), where the implement is usually integrated with the machine (rather than detachable).

A "power tiller" can be understood as a small (3-7 hp or 2.2-5.2 kW) gasoline/petrol/electric garden tiller/rotary cultivator, of the hobby gardener variety; they are often sold as rotary tillers, although the term is used in Agricultural technical use refers only to attachments to large tractors.Alternatively, the terms "power tiller" or "rotary tiller" are always understood in Asia and elsewhere as self-propelled machines with rubber or iron wheels, 5-18 hp (3.7-13.4 kW), usually powered by a heavy single cylinder diesel engines (many Asian countries have historically imposed high luxury taxes on gasoline/petrol).Adding to the naming confusion, agricultural engineers like to classify them as single-axle tractors.For clarity, the remainder of refers to self-propelled, single-axle, multiple-attachment traction machines as two-wheel tractors.For past and present productive farming, two-wheel tractors can accept a wide range of implements, such as: For soil work: rotary tillers, moldboard plows, disc plows, rotary plows, root/tuber harvesting plows, mini subsoiler plows , powered and non-powered harrows, seeders, transplanters and pots.Even zero-till/no-till planters and planters are available. In plant protection and weed control, two-wheel tractor implements include a variety of cultivators and sprayers.For harvesting, the tools available are:Forage: sickle mowers, disc mowers, hay rakes, hay tedders, hay balers and balers.For grain harvesting: Harvesters/grain harvesters, reapers, and even combines are available.For transport, trailers with a capacity of 0.5 to 5 tons of cargo are available.Common lawn mowers include lawnmowers, mowers, and flail mowers.For snow removal, tools include snow blowers, electric sweepers, and snow/dozing blades.Other tools include: Chippers/shredders, log splitters, generators, pressure washers, edgers, fertilizer/salt/lime spreaders and stump grinders.This (probably incomplete) list of tools means that a two wheel tractor can do almost all the chores that a larger four wheel tractor does, with the exception of things like front loaders, which obviously have the physical stability requirements of a 4 wheel (two axle) tractor.

This confusion, or perhaps just ignorance, about the utility of two-wheel tractors persists even at the research and institutional level. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations' own statistical database, FAO Stat measures the level of agricultural mechanization by the number of four-wheel tractors, completely ignoring the fact that two-wheel tractors often perform many or even exactly the same jobs as four-wheel models.Using FAO statistics, international donors and agricultural research and development centers hypothesize that, since Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have few four-wheel tractors, they are not mechanized at all compared to (for example) India, which has a large number of four-wheel tractors (except for 300,000 two-wheel tractor[4]).However, when two-wheeled tractors are included, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are the most mechanized countries in South Asia in terms of cultivated area using mechanized tillage.Two-wheel tractors are also extremely common in agricultural use in European mountainous countries (Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, etc.), and as of 2015, at least 15 brands of two-wheel tractors are of Italian origin only.
