In this paper, there are monitored and compared the parameters of tractor three-point hitch control. Comparisons were carried out under laboratory conditions for two types of regulation. The first one was a standard mechanical and the second one was electro-hydraulic Bosch. Testing was performed on a test bench designed for the Department of Transport and Handling (Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra). The results of measurements are evaluated statistically and shown in a graphical form.


The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community under project 26220220180: Building Research Centre “AgroBioTech”. Supported by the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic, Project VEGA 1/0857/12 “Reduction of unfavourable impacts of agricultural and transport machinery on the environment”.
