In current agricultural production, the tractor is an irreplaceable power machine. The tractor clutch is installed between the engine and the gearbox. It works smoothly when in gear; limits the maximum torque that the drive train can withstand, and prevents the drive train from being overloaded.

Since the clutch is often used in the use of the tractor, how to operate the clutch correctly is particularly important. The tractor clutch manufacturer took the Kubota tractor clutch as an example to introduce the correct operation and use of the tractor clutch as follows:

1. When using the clutch to disengage, it must be quickly and thoroughly, and the pedal should be pressed to the bottom at one time, so as not to cause drag and linkage;

When the tractor is started, the clutch pedal is lifted violently, which will cause the clutch to be unsteady and produce an impact load, which will cause the friction lining to warp or even break due to the huge impact force; at the same time, it will also damage other working parts of the transmission system; If it is too slow, it will cause shock, vibration and even flameout.

When you start, you must master the essentials of “fast, pause, and slow”. The first is fast. After the tractor is put into low gear, quickly lift the clutch pedal to find the contact point. At this time, the tractor shakes and has a tendency to drive; and then “pause”, that is, after finding the contact point, the clutch should stop at this position. , to make the clutch friction plate engage smoothly; the last is “slow”, at this time, step on the accelerator gradually, and slowly lift the clutch pedal to ensure the tractor starts smoothly. The tractor should not be started with a load in a high gear. It should be in a low gear first, and then shifted into a high gear after starting.


The separation should be quick and thorough. If the separation is in a “semi-linkage” state, a large amount of heat will be generated between the friction plates, and the friction coefficient will decrease. Excessive heat will cause the friction plates to burn or peel off. If the separation is not complete, use the “semi-linkage” for 1 hour continuously or use it for 1 minute each time, and use it for 4 hours in total, the clutch friction plate, separation pressure claw or other parts will be scrapped.

2. The operator should not put his foot on the clutch pedal while the tractor is running, so as not to cause the release bearing to be in a rotating state and shorten its service life; use the semi-linkage as much as possible to control the clutch, because the semi-linkage can make the gap between the friction plate and the pressure plate The high temperature will cause the pressure plate spring to lose its proper elasticity when heated, and in severe cases, the friction plate will be ablated, causing the clutch to slip.

3. When the car is trapped or over obstacles, do not use the method of violently lifting the clutch to impact, so as not to damage the transmission parts; try to start with the first gear, and do not use the clutch to change the speed of the car; try not to use the method of half separation to reduce the speed of the car; Always check whether there is oil on the active plate, pressure plate, and driven friction plate. If there is oil, clean it with gasoline; if the friction plate wears too much, replace the friction plate; if the spring is not strong enough, replace it with a new spring; The gap between the lever and the release bearing is not suitable, the gap should be adjusted.

The above is timely about the correct use method of Kubota tractor clutch. If you have any questions during use, you can contact the manufacturer at any time.
