If you don't know how that may apply to every day use of a tractor, when you're plowing it will maintain the depth of the plow, even if a wheel may run over a rise or rock. Also the down draft of the plow would transfer the force to the wheel on the tractor and improve traction. Other mounted implements like cultivators also was improved by that sort of system...Roger
