Wind-Powered Tractors (Tom Walma)

Creativity Wasted

01-04-2022 • 14 mins

Idea: Tractors powered by sailboat-style sails instead of fossil fuels. Also: calculations of the power generated by sails vs. the power needs of different types of tractors; using a battery-powered tractor and charging it via a stationary windmill (or a windmill on top of the tractor); Tesla tractor conversion kits; questioning whether people would volunteer to farm your field for free if the tractor was fun like a sailboat, and questioning whether that notion (ie trying to get people to farm for free) is dangerously close to slavery
