Université Laval finish 7th at the IQS Tractor Student Design Competition

On May 28, nine members of the ULtrac team took the road to participate to the International Student Design Competition (IQS), organized by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).

This year, twenty-seven university teams took part in the competition, which was held from May 29 to June 1, 2014 in Peoria, Illinois, United States. The team is proud to have successfully remained competitive in obtaining the 7th position overall and despite the many unexpected situations in the last two months. The year 2014 was characterized by the implementation of several pulling tests on clay, the design and built of a test bench and laboratory testing of a controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT). It is a strong and determined team who will take over next year.

The ULtrac team wishes to thank its generous sponsors who have allowed students to show once again their expertise and contributed largely to the success of the 2014 edition of the project.
