Well the front axle has two small wheels, the back axle holds the big, deep tread tyres with all wheels protected with mud guards.

You can maneuver around the yard or out on the field using the real steering on the front axle. They're manually controlled left or right, well its up to the child to align them up to go straight again.

Counter-Balance, Ballast

When towing Britains farm implements you may come into a little bother. Namely the rear may tip up if the weight you're towing is to heavy - but there's a simple solution.

Britains have fitted an undetachable counter-weight on the front of the tractor. And this is the simplest solution for them.

The idea of towing farm implements is to keep all four wheels on the ground at all times.

So here we have the front counter-weight to split the weight from the back axle to the front axle - this is called ballasting.

Once they've pulled off the driver's can, they would have unrestricted access to the interior where they can feel around the cab - and bonus - they should be able to sit the Britains tractor driver before closing the cab again be popping the cab back on.
