Repeated bouncing process of a traveling tractor occurs on certain road conditions when the
wheels become unstuck that means no contact with the road surface. Furthermore, the impact
after the unstuck period produces violent vibrations that cause severe discomfort to the operator
and shock loading that may cause fatigue failure on the structural components of a tractor or the
linkage of tractor-implement system.
