Driving impression: DTU T860 concept tractor

Innovative concept tractors exist in their hundreds out there in the global world of virtual imaging, but very few of them actually make that quantum leap off the computer screen and into the field. Here, however, is one of the exceptions. The ‘Deutsche Traktoren Union’ (DTU) has constructed an eight-wheel tractor that is reckoned to be as effective at putting its 600hp down on to the dirt as any of the big rubber-tracked crawler alternatives
