Farmers generally use a tractor for cultivation purposes but the tractor has certain drawbacks when it is considered for wetland cultivation. The wheels of tractors leave wheel mark trails behind. The fuel consumption is higher with tractors and less efficient when considered on a time basis. These problems motivated the innovator to find a simple solution to get rid of these problems. In order to get rid of the problems faced by local farmers during cultivation, he joined the cultivator with the harvester having caterpillar type (crawler) which is called track type wheel in order to get a maximum area of contact and to get more efficiency.
