Interview with U of Saskatchewan Sled Dogs

SK regional director, Oon-Doo Baik interviewed two members (Cory Bart and Dane Steen, both from Mechanical Engineering) of The University of Saskatchewan ¼ Scale Tractor team named “U of S Sled Dogs”. The team has been participating in the ASABE International ¼ Scale Tractor Student Design Competition since 2002. For the competition, all the competing teams are provided with the same engine and a set of tires (31 hp Briggs & Stratton and Titan tires). The design of their tractors is a good open-ended project totally up to the teams. Numerous judges from industries evaluate each design for innovation, manufacturability, serviceability, safety, sound level, and ergonomics. Teams also submit a written design report. Their tractors will be tested for pull, maneuverability and durability.
