U of M team is warming up for 2011 Quarter Scale Tractor competition!

The University of Manitoba’s Quarter Scale Tractor Team is making excellent progress on researching and designing their brand new  2011 tractor.  The 2011 competition will be held in Peoria, IL from June 2-5.  This fall we saw our team grow as new students joined to learn the competition rules and gain some experience.  As the days to competition grow closer, members of the team can be found in the Biosystems Engineering Fabrication Shop every week and every weekend, as final designs are completed and fabrication gets underway.


Also, this year we are partnering with Buhler Versatile Inc, who are very excited to sponsor the team.and  assist in manufacturing.  The team has a growing list of industry sponsors who are enabling them to design a great piece of machinery.
