For information on the tractors that replaced them, see Articulated tractors. Tandem tractors are special conversions of tractors. Most feature two engines and have their front wheels removed. Most were built before the Articulated Giants appeared. The idea to link two tractors together originated in Australia, with many farmers doing it. Australia made more of them than the U.S. and U.K, making around two thirds of all tandem tractors. Until Wagner, Steiger, Big Bud and Rite appeared, people and companies had built thousands of Tandem tractors.
