I have the manual for my D14 (which is an engineering marvel in every way.) Extremely informative and detailed manual. I got the tractor mainly for bush-hog type mowing - I'm using a pull type King Kutter. "...This system gives the operator more accurate control of the implements, less operating fatigue, fingertip control, prevents overloading tractor or engine and gives greater fuel economy." If I knew more about using farm implements I might better understand the whole business of the traction booster and hydraulics involved and what they're supposed to do. I'd appreciate it if someone with some experience with this system could explain what this does in real world terms.

Simply put the traction booster,when plowing,can sense when an extra heavy pull occurs and lift the plow ever so slighty and the suction action of the plow lifting kinda pulls the wheels tigher tinto the ground giving the tractor more traction and lightening the pulling load. This allows the tractor to keep pulling and eliminates slippage of the wheels thus resulting in saving of wear on tires and fuel. My terminology is not correct but I hope this gives you an idea of what the traction booster does. If you get under your tractor with your manual and locate the part on the tractor I am sure that like I did you will see just what does what under there. I agree it is a very clever simple design that has proven itself over and over again.

That's a good description of how it works- it is important to remember that Traction Booster works with mounted and certain semi-mounted tillage tools. If it is a fully trailing machine it cannot put weight onto the rear wheels. And it has no effect on pulling a wagon of hay, etc.
