A tractor’s front axle suspension has to work over a very wide and extreme weight range. If a heavy implement is mounted on the rear linkage the load on the front beam becomes much lighter but the suspension still has to perform to enable the axle to remain safely in contact with the deck. The other extreme is when a heavy front implement is hitched onto the front linkage or a loader put to work shifting heavy payloads.
