Resumen An investigation was undertaken to assess the mechanical condition of agricultural vehicles in use on farms in the United Kingdom. A detailed examination of 242 tractors and 71 agricultural trailed appliances was carried out to meet the requirements of an inspection according to The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98, see CIS 99-1429). Experienced agricultural engineers carried out the examinations and analyzed the results on the scale and nature of defects according to vehicle age and horsepower, region and main farm activity. Close to 70% had faults, some minor and easily correctable by replacing light bulbs, others are more major items such as brake performance, tyre wear and pressures and driver vision items (windscreen wipers, external rear view mirrors).
